HYDE —  The Clearfield Bison (8-4) wrestling team picked up six forfeits, and split the eight contested bouts 4-4, to roll over the visiting Tyrone Eagles (0-8) on Thursday night 54-13.

Other than the forfeits, two Bison picked up bonus point wins via the fall – freshman Zane Morgan at 113 and sophomore Logan Lykens at 182.

Also earning team points on the mat for the hosts were Tristan Carruthers at 160 and frosh Thayne Morgan at 106. Carruthers was the lone senior to pick up a victory on Senior Night for the Bison.

The marquee match up of the night occurred at 220 where Tyrone senior Jared Beckwith (22-1) held off Bison senior Jake Verchick (16-7), 6-4.

The most entertaining bout of the night was the 138 pound finale where Tyrone’s Ty Snyder edged Clearfield’s Tallin Norris 14-13 to set the final score.

Clearfield, the number two seed, will face the number three seeded DuBois Beavers (7-6) on Saturday in the semifinals of the District 9 Team Wrestling Championships at DuBois Area High School. The other semifinal will see the number one seeded St. Marys Flying Dutch face the four-seeded Punxsutawney Chucks. The Bison defeated the Beavers at home 45-30 in their season-opening dual back on December 10.
