ANDREWS, N.C. — Walker Valley’s season-opening wrestling match turned out to be anticlimactic, but it was a blowout victory nonetheless.

Making the four-hour round trip to Andrews, N.C., one of the teams schedule to be involved didn’t show, while another just fielded a half dozen wrestlers as the Mustangs notched a pair of extreme blowout victories by outscoring their opponents 145-12.

Walker Valley put 10 Franklin, N.C., wrestlers’ shoulders to the mat in a 73-3 runaway, then added four more “mat slaps” against the hosts, but had to accept eight forfeits in a 72-9 shellacking.

Coach Alan Morris’ Stallions will make the short trip down Interstate 75 to participate in the Ooltewah Invitational Saturday.

Walker Valley’s Drake Haney was only on the mat for a total of 95 seconds while posting a pair of pins in his 103-pound matches, while teammate Joseph Munoz got a 31-second stick and one in the third period at 126. QyRe Brown also put both of his opponents’ shoulders to the mat for a dozen Mustang points at 160.

Also picking up pins in their only contested matches were Dionte Richardson (145), Ryan Hager (152), in 28 seconds, Chazz Fulford (182), in just 26 ticks, Ric Kennett (182), Billy Raulston (195) and Zack Miller (220).

Samuel Dworak (285) and Kaine Smith (132) both split their two matches, earning pins in their victories.

Walker Valley (2-0) gave up just a pair of decisions and one pin in the three-way meet.
