Junior Trentin Whaley continued to win against Everett, but he’s frustrated with the Devils giving up forfeits each meet.

The Blue Devils didn’t have an awful night in terms of what happened on the mat against Everett last night at home.

B-A’s issue was forfeits.

For the last several seasons, the downfall of the program has been the simple fact the Devils don’t have enough wrestlers to fill the weight classes. B-A gave up 3 forfeits last night in a 51-19 loss to the Warriors.

Some Blue Devils were able to secure wins, though. Trentin Whaley pinned his opponent at 182, Colton Gority gained an 11-1 major decision at 170, Derrick Noonan won a closely fought match at 132, and finally heavyweight Evan Pellegrine had a forfeit win.

The talented Everett squad was able to secure the rest of the matches en route to a 30-point slaughter of the Blue Devils.

Whaley was frustrated after his pin, saying, “I’m frustrated about the team giving up forfeits for no reason, and I also am frustrated in only winning by decision. We need more bonus points.”

Though the Blue Devils lost by a large a margin, that didn’t mean it was total loss for the Blue Devils, who are showing they have some veterans who can pull out some wins.
