Mitchell picks up lone THS win in loss to Alliance


TORRINGTON – Torrington junior Gabe Mitchell picked up the Blazer’s only win on Senior Night in a 76-6 loss to the Alliance (Neb.) Bulldogs.

The teams only had seven matches for the evening as Torrington was open at 106, 113, 126, 132, 195, 220 and 285 pounds.

As a result, the Blazers spotted Alliance a 30-0 lead before the first match even took place.

Mitchell’s win came in the final match of the evening and ended with a fall in the second period.

For the remaining six matches, Riley Duffield (120 pounds), Matthew Hellus (138), Bryan Garcia-Hernandez (152), Tyler Juma (160), and Sam Birdsall (170) all lost by fall.

Only one match on the night went the full six minutes, and in the match, senior Kevin Ferguson was defeated in a major decision, 12-0.

The Blazers will wrap up the regular season Saturday, Feb. 8 in Rawlins.
