UNCASVILLE, Feb. 17 -- Two Canton wrestlers won medals at the Class S tournament. Junior Mike Rossley finished fourth at 119 pounds, losing in the consolation finals 8-0 to top-seeded Drew Stomski of Nonnewaug. Rossley had three pins in the tournament but lost in the semifinals to eventual champion Jake Miller of East Windsor.
Dana Nappi (140) also advanced to the semifinals but he dropped a 9-5 decision to Aashen Arango of Hartford Classical. Nappi hurt his back in a loss to Housatonic’s Jon Bonnett in the consolation round and finished sixth. Nappi’s big win was a 14-12 decision over No. 2 seed Chris Mastrianni of Derby in the quarterfinals.
Stephen Carpenter (103) was seeded third. He dropped a quarterfinal match and won a match in the consolation round before he got shaken up and was eliminated in the consolation quarterfinals.
Canton finished 23rd in the field of 33 teams with 43 points. The Warriors (5-25) had no seniors. “They weren’t seasoned enough,” Canton coach Bill Phelps said. “It is hard to get seasoned just wrestling during the season. If they want to do well, they’ll have to do some work in the off-season.”
Rossley qualified to wrestle in this weekend’s State Open tournament.
Nappi wins NCCC title as Canton surprises at tourney
EAST WINDSOR, Feb. 10 -- Junior Dana Nappi (140) won a league championship to lead Canton to a surprising fifth place finish, only two points behind fourth place Enfield. Junior Mike Rossley (119) took second while freshman Stephen Carpenter (103) and sophomore Brandon Leach (135) finished third. Junior Mike Jones (145) was fourth.
“They were wrestling pretty good,” assistant coach Ed deSimas said. “It is definitely the best they’ve wrestled all year.” Nappi (21-6) became the first Canton wrestler since 2004 to win a NCCC championship with a 10-3 win over Avon’s Alex McCabe. Tied at 2-2 in the second period, Nappi escaped got a takedown and put McCabe on his back to take control of the match.
Rossley (26-9) was trailing by one in the third period of his semifinal match with Granby’s Matt Smith but Rossley hit a strong reversal to gain control and pinned him in the next 30 seconds. But in the final, he lost to Avon’s Este Lara in 3:46.
Carpenter (31-8) continued his strong freshman season by pinning Enfield’s Ben Rochette in 1:34 to take third. Carpenter, who weighed in at 91 pounds, gave up 14 pounds to each opponent, who could weigh up to 105 pounds. Carpenter started out quickly in the consolation final against Rochette, immediately diving for an ankle to get a takedown. Carpenter finished the tournament with three pins and won the fast fall award with 3 pins in 3:26.
Leach (21-13) lost his opening round match in the tournament to Enfield’s Nick Meunier, 7-0. But he won two straight bouts in the consolation round to meet Meunier again in the consolation final. This time, Leach was aggressive diving for an ankle from the opening whistle to get a quick takedown. He pinned Meunier in less than a minute.
Suffield had five of its seven finalists win titles as the Wildcats won the NCCC Tournament to clinch its first-ever NCCC championship. Entering the finals, Suffield trailed Avon by three but the Wildcats won with 193½ points to Avon’s 184. Suffield’s key wins came from Justin Sheridan (125), who hit a reversal and three-point near fall with 18 seconds left to earn a 6-2 victory over East Windsor’s Jake Miller, and Larry Cauley (130) who outlasted Avon’s Mike Defeo, 5-0. Avon was 2-4 in the finals
The league coaches also voted Ed deSimas as the NCCC Assistant Coach of the Year for the second time in the last three years.
CANTON, Feb. 7 – It was a disappointing end to the dual meet season on Wednesday for Canton, which dropped a 34-33 decision to Stafford. Due to multiple forfeits on both sides of the mat, there were only bouts in five of 14 weight classes. Unfortunately for Canton, Stafford prevailed in three of the five bouts with two pins. Canton (5-25, 1-6 NCCC) had just one pin in the meet. The Warriors are at the NCCC Tournament on Saturday and will wrestle in the Class S tournament on February 16-17.
The five wins are the least amount of wins since 1990 when the Warriors were 3-11. The 25 defeats set a new school record for most losses in a single season. The previous record was 17 losses in 1977-78 when Canton was 1-17.
Watson wins NCCC title in track
NEW HAVEN, Jan. 31 – A year ago, senior Jasen Watson was 26-15 with 12 pins at 152 pounds for Canton. But he couldn’t wrestle this year due to neck injury he suffered when he was younger. So, he is running with the Canton High girls indoor track team this winter. He is one of four boys working out with the girls team and he had an exceptional evening at the recent NCCC championships at the New Haven Athletic Center.
He won the NCCC championship in the 300 meter dash in 37.55 seconds and finished second in two other events. He was second in the 55 meter dash, just 0.11 seconds behind the winner and second in the long jump with a leap of 19 feet and a half inch. Watson helped Canton finish fourth among 10 teams.
2nd at Eagle Classic
BERLIN, Jan. 20 – For the first time this year, freshman Stephen Carpenter got the chance to wrestle in a 95 pound weight class at the 13th annual Eagle Classic in Berlin, a tournament that frequently attracts the stronger teams in the state along with perennial New England contender Mt. Anthony Union from Bennington, Vt., who have finished among the top five in New England Tournament for the last eight years, winning three times (2004, 2002, 1999).
Carpenter (23-5) advanced to the finals with three victories and two pins, including a 52 second pin of Suffield’s Kyle Rempher in the semifinals. But a more experienced and stronger Ethan Andrews of Mt. Anthony pinned Carpenter in 5:45. It didn’t put a damper on an outstanding day of wrestling for Carpenter. “He has been wrestling very well,” Canton coach Bill Phelps said. “He works hard and he’s aggressive. He is very tenacious on the mat. He wants to be there. He wants to learn and he is tough.”
Carpenter was just the sixth Canton wrestler ever to make an appearance in a final at the Eagle Classic. The only wrestler to win in the final was Kacy O’Connor in 1999 at 140 pounds. And Carpenter has his eye on O’Connor’s team-record 29 wins as a freshman in 1996.
The only other Canton wrestler to earn a win in the first round was Mike Jones (145) with an 11-4 win over Brohen Krusslic of Woodstock Academy. But he lost his remaining three decisions in the tournament to finish sixth.
Canton doesn't have enough to get past Somers
CANTON, Jan. 17 – Somers snapped a 14-match losing streak against Canton (4-15, 1-3 NCCC) and beat the Warriors for the first time since 1990 with a 42-34 victory. Mike Rossley (125) and Sean Delany (189) won by pin and Mike Jones (152) earned a major decision. Rossley improved to 19-4.
Freshman Stephen Carpenter (20-4) lost to Somers’ Troy Zachary, 8-1 at 103 pounds and Carpenter, only 94 pounds, was giving up 11 pounds. Dana Nappi (145) picked up a forfeit against Somers and beat Ellington’s Travis Caouette, 11-0. Canton and Somers each forfeited three weight classes each.
Four pins isn't enough against Granby
GRANBY, Jan. 10 – Steven Carpenter (103), Mike Rossley (119), Brandon Leach (135) and Dana Nappi (152) each had pins but it wasn’t enough as Granby beat the Warriors, 52-24. Canton also gave up four forfeits.
Warriors take 7th in N'western Duals
BARKHAMSTED, Jan. 6 -- The Warriors (4-10, 1-1 NCCC) finished seventh in the Northwestern Regional Duals with a 45-36 victory over East Catholic. Canton also beat Rocky Hill, 54-30, in the tournament. The Warriors did fall to Suffield (48-25), which won the tournament, Morgan, 42-36, and Wolcott Tech, 48-31. Last week, Avon handed Canton its first conference loss of the year, 65-9.
Canton tops Ellis Tech for 2nd win
FARMINGTON, Dec. 27 – Despite having just eight healthy wrestlers, Canton was able able to earn its second victory with a 42-30 victory over Ellis Tech-Danielson. Sean Delhany (215), Steve Carpenter (103), Mike Rossley (119) and Mike Jones (152) earned pins to help Canton prevail in four of the six weight classes that had bouts. Several Canton wrestlers are nursing injuries and cannot wrestle. A few other wrestlers haven’t shown up for practice or meets during this holiday period.
Canton (2-6) lost to Farmington, 73-6 and Thomaston, 51-18. Ryan Maglieitti (130) was trailing by three before putting Andrew Rivera to his back to earn a pin and Canton’s only points against Farmington. Against Thomaston, Carpenter (103) and Rossley (119) won by by pin.
Carpenter, just a freshman, is now 10-3 on the year while Rossley, a junior, is now 10-2.
Rossley wins first tournament at Derby Invitational
DERBY, Dec. 16 -- Junior Mike Rossley went 4-0 with four pins at 119 pounds to win his first-ever tournament championship at the 17th annual Derby Invitational. Rossley won the title with a 49 second pin of Derby’s Vin DelPrete. Rossley had just 12 pins in 27 matches a year ago.
Three other Warriors finished third – Ryan Magleitti (130), Dana Nappi (152) and Dan LeDuc (160). Freshman Stephen Carpenter (103) and Brandon Leach (140) finished fourth.
Canton finished tied for fifth in the tournament with Housatonic (93 points). Derby easily won the title for the second straight year over Morgan, 193-101. Branford and Darien were tied for third with 96 points.
Nappi dislocated his elbow in the consolation semifinals but still beat Derby’s Dan Grady when it popped back into place. With his elbow taped, Nappi beat Hamden Hall’s Nick Alberino, 10-2. Nappi could miss a few weeks to let the injury heal.
Magleitti and LeDuc each went 3-1 with three pins in the tournament. Leach lost twice to Gilbert’s James Dombrowski. Magleitti pinned Darien’s Justin Marks in 2:34 to take third while LeDuc pinned Darien’s Alex Shirmer in 2:46 to finish third.
Canton drops opener
CANTON, Dec. 14 -- Canton lost its initial dual meet to Portland, 59-19. Stephen Carpenter, who weights just 92 points, won his varsity debut at 103 pounds by pinning Portland’s Ryan Enright in 1:43. Ryan Maglietti (130) rallied from a 6-0 deficit to outlast Shane Kelly, 14-10. Dan LeDuc (171) also won for the Warriors. ... Alex Cabeceiras (9-10, 6 pins a year ago) left the team.
Young but optimistic
CANTON, Dec. 10 -- The Warriors will have a younger team that they anticipated this year but long-time coach Bill Phelps still sees reasons for optimism.
“It’s a very young group,” he said. “We’ll take some thumping but we’ll do some thumping, too. We have some very good potential.”
Senior Jasen Watson will be a big loss. Watson was 26-15 with 16 pins at 152 pounds a year ago but can’t wrestle due to a neck injury he suffered as a youngster. He’ll run indoor track instead. Senior Dan Rossley (2-2, 2 pins) was hurt in a car accident last winter and can’t wrestle. Senior Bobby Delvecchio (22-14, 17 pins at 189) declined to participate.
Still, there is talent on the team, which is seeing the fruits from the USA club wrestling team in town. Freshman Stephen Carpenter won two state titles in fifth and sixth grade while freshman Matt Grisevich comes to the team with previous experience. Freshman Jackson Fitzgerald (112) also looks sharp.
Junior Mike Rosley (119) returns and he was 17-15 a year ago at 112 with 14 pins. Dana Nappi (18-8, 10 pins at 145) was third in the NCCC last year. Other junior veterans returning include Ethan Leach, Mike Jones (11-16, 5 pins at 125), Alex Cabeceiras (9-18, 6 pins) and Ryan Maglietti (11-14, 7 pins).
