Lake Stevens holds off Moses Lake in wrestling showdown

Top-ranked Lake Stevens built a big lead early, then held on to beat No. 3 Moses Lake, 36-34, in a showdown between the state’s top 4A wrestling programs Friday night at Cavelero Mid High School in Lake Stevens.

The Vikings swept the first six matches — including a pin by Jessie Peterson at 103 and a forfeit at 112 — to open up a 27-0 lead, but Moses Lake used three straight first-round pins to power back into the match.

Lake Stevens’ Jack Reeves answered with a 40-second pin at 160 and Andrew King pulled out a 4-2 decision at 171 to all but put the match away at 36-18. If the Chiefs could have closed out the match with three pins, they would have drawn even for the tie — and they did get two of them. But at 215 Brandon Johnson held his opponent — top-ranked Brian Chamberlain (the defending state champ) to a major decision, and that was enough.

It’s almost time to start getting excited for what should be an entertaining post-season, if you aren’t already. The sub-regional tournaments are just three weeks away.

Here are those complete results:

103 — Jessie Peterson, LS, pinned Fernando Leyva, 3:55
