Poole's final win lifts Central in opener

Wednesday, December 3, 2003
Jackson's Blake Ulrich had the advantage over New Madrid County Central's Demarkus Allison and went on to win the 171 class match at Jackson High School Tuesday night.

Central's wrestling team opened the season in thrilling fashion Tuesday night by rallying for a 36-32 win over host Murphysboro, Ill.

The Tigers trailed 32-30 entering the final match at 215 pounds (the dual meet started with the heavyweight match, then went from 103 on up).

Central 215-pounder Jason Poole came through with a pin of Mark French, giving the Tigers six points and the victory.

"Murphysboro has always been tough, and it feels good to get a win," Central coach Josh Crowell said. "I'm really proud of the kids."

Also winning for the Tigers were Chris Griffith (103), Matthew Latham (119), Dan Coonce (135), J.D. Mungle (160) and John Moseby (189) -- all by pin except for Latham's forfeit victory. That helped offset Murphysboro's eight wins, only one of which came by pin.

"We had some younger guys who, even though they didn't win, avoided being pinned, which saved us points and was huge," Crowell said.

Central also won three of five junior varsity matches, but no team score was kept.
