KANSAS — An injury to Dylan Burns at 120 pounds put a damper on another big day for Edison.

The Chargers repeated as Sandusky Bay Conference champions, this time taking the Bay Division over Oak Harbor, 234-174, on Saturday at Lakota High School.

"The only negative thing is Dylan is done for the season with a broken collarbone," Edison coach Davey Hermes said. "He is a great kid who has had a great season. It sucks and it kind of ruined the day, to be honest. He is ranked second in the state and had a great career."

All 18 teams from the Lake, Bay and River were put into the same individual brackets, with team scoring divided up by divisions.

Burns (46-3) led Cam Dickman of Oak Harbor, 2-1, in the championship match before Dickman (33-5) unintentionally slammed Burns to the ground. Dickman was whistled for unnecessary roughness and docked a point, but Burns was unable to finish the match.

Freshman Casey Barnett got the winning going for Edison in the 106 pound match. Barnett (49-2) was taken down by Rico Cunningham (27-11) of Sandusky in the first period, but Barnett scored a reversal and three sets of back points to take a 8-2 lead after one period. Barnett added a takedown in the second period before pinning Cunnningham in 2:17.

Ray Adams won the 113 pound championship for the Chargers. Adams (42-7) defeated Noah Alda (36-2) of Bellevue, 10-1. After a scoreless first period, Adams scored an escape, takedown, and near fall in the second period for a 5-0 lead. He added a takedown and nearfall in the final period for the win.

"We dominated the lower weight classes," Hermes said. "We talk about all three of those weight classes being in the state finals. They continue to wrestle well."

Edison added a fourth championship at 138 pounds when Jordan Keegan (23-2) took down Darry Endicott of Lakota, 10-6. Keegan scored three takedowns in the first two periods for a 6-2 lead. Endicott (34-8) escaped each of Keegan’s takedowns, but could never mount any offense.

The Chargers made it 5-for-5 in championship matches when Collin Mancuso took an exciting 6-4 decision win over Oak Harbor’s Garrett Mapes at 152 pounds. Mapes led, 2-0, after one period, and 3-2 in the third period when Mancuso scored a reversal. Mapes escaped to tie the match, but Mancuso executed a perfect takedown as time expired to win the title.

Sam Stoll was Edison’s sixth and final championship at 182 pounds when he won, 9-4 over Gabe Phillips of Norwalk. Stoll (46-3) used four takedowns and an escape to control Phillips (30-4). Stoll now sits with 198 career wins.

"Sam will be the 13th wrestler in Ohio with 200 wins and Edison has four of them," Hermes said. "He has always been a constant out there doing his job. He is not real flashy. He just wins.

"We wrestled great and had six conference champions," he added. "Coming in, I thought we were the team to beat and the kids wrestled really well."

Slone fourth for Willard

The Crimson Flashes placed fourth in the River division, led by D.J. Alone placing fourth.

Slone dropped a tough 6-5 decision to Vermilion’s Trevor Boyd in the 160-pound third-place match.

Also for Willard, Raven Brant finished in fifth place at heavyweight after pinning Clyde’s Kris Mange in 2:27. Spencer Parrott placed seventh with a major decision win, and Alexis Iracheta finished eighth at 113 pounds.
