Knights’ early lead not enough
BATAVIA – The Batavia wrestling team spotted Kaneland 10 points Friday night, then reeled off the next 36 en route to a 47-30 victory. The key victories for the Bulldogs during their scoring spree came at 220 pounds and heavyweight, with Batavia coach Scott Bayer electing to have Mickey Watson and Connor McKeehan each bump up a weight class to take on much heavier foes.
Watson, normally a 195-pounder, claimed a 4-0 decision over Nick Sharp at 220, while in the most entertaining bout of the night, McKeehan moved up from 220 to heavyweight and edged Zach Theis, 7-6.
McKeehan trailed the match 6-2, but scored a reversal and three-point near fall in the waning moments of the second period to go in front.
