Bath: Hyde vs. Morse in the Battle of Bath

The Battle of Bath – Hyde vs. Morse


The Morse Shipbuilders and the Hyde Phoenix squared off last night in the Hyde School theater to renew the Battle of Bath in a friendly wrestling meet.  It was a great event with many closely contested matches.  At the end of the regulation bouts, the score stood at 42 apiece.  Rather than go to criteria to decide the tie, the coaches elected to have the 6 exhibition bouts decide the meet.  Morse won 5 of the 6 exhibition bouts to walk away victorious.  Both teams (and their fans) showed great sportsmanship and respect for the wrestlers, and both teams should feel good about the meet.


Individual results:


106         Kyle Bonti (M)  won by fall  Sam Williams (H)

113         Brian Edwards (H) won by forfeit

120         Cody Marenius (M) won by fall Austin Wang (H)

126         Hang Zhao (H) won by forfeit

132         Billy Martinez (H) won by forfeit

138         DeAndre Dinkins (M) won by fall David Wu (H)

145         Darvin Anderson (H) won by fall Kyle Perry (M)

152         Michael Armstrong (M) won by fall Elliott Wang (H)

160         Michael Alvarez (M) won by fall Cody Baker (H)

170         Corey Lent (M) won by fall Teo Meyerhoff (H)

182         Bailey Paige- Nichols (M) won by fall Zach Messina (H)

195         Jack Howarth H) won by fall Zech Thomas (M)

220         Will Davis (H) won by fall Austin Talco (M)

285         Steven Dwight (H) won by fall Ricky Reynolds (M)


Two Hyde Wrestlers had standout performances:  Senior 220 Will Davis stepped onto the wrestling mat for the first time in his life just hours before the match.  He won in dramatic fashion and electrified the crowd!  Junior 195 Jack Howarth has been the consummate learner in practice so far this season and he was able to link techniques and show considerable improvements in just a few days.  For this, Jack has earned the “Man of the Match”!


Hyde returns to the mat for a busy weekend of wrestling, competing Friday at Roxbury Latin and Saturday at Milton Academy.
