  • Shawnee did not pick up a win until the eighth match, and then posted five straight wins to take the lead, but ultimately fell by a 38-30 count to Class 6A’s seventh-ranked Stillwater Thursday night. The loss moves the Wolves, ranked sixth in Class 5A, to 1-1 on duals. The host Pioneers won the first seven matches, including two by forfeit, one by fall and two by major decision. It was not until the eighth match, at 152 pounds, that the Wolves got on the board. Daylan Stuteville (152) recorded a 5-2 decision over Stillwater’s Beau Bigheart to spark the rally, and the Wolves went on to get pins by Matt Daniel, Thomas Shepard and Robert Selumber before Stillwater halted the progress. Daniel, at 160 pounds, took down Anthony Worley in 3:15, and 170-pound entrant Shepard took down Chuck Neil in 3:02. Selumber, at 195 pounds, pinned Cody Knight in 2:35. At 182 pounds, Shawnee’s Walker Smith notched a 10-5 decision over Pete Pickens. Shawnee led after Selumber’s victory, but the Pioneers reclaimed the advantage in the 220-pound match with Tyrell Cargon’s pin (3:17) of Gage Humphrey. Shawnee’s Ryan Goodfox picked up a win by fall in the heavyweight bout, taking down D.J. Peckham in 1:38. “Our kids battled. We knew their lower weights were tough,” said Shawnee coach Larry James. The Wolves will go to the Duncan Tournament today and Saturday, and will travel to Ardmore Dec. 18. Note: Report compiled by Jason Smith.
