Jordan Wood has been on a roll the first week of the current wrestling season.
A steady one ... and a dominating one, to be sure.
For the second straight weekend, Wood swept past the competition Saturday - this time, at the King of the Mountain Tournament. And for a second time around, the sophomore heavyweight's stellar showing headed an equally solid run on the mats by Boyertown.
Wood, coming off an OW performance in the home-based Bealer Memorial Duals last weekend, repeated his unbeaten excellence at Central Mountain. He claimed gold at 220, heading an eight-medal outing by Boyertown that secured a second-place berth in the team standings.
Wood scored three pins in advance of his final-round pairing with Bethlehem Catholic's Andrew Dunn, needing no more than 93 seconds in any of them to get the slap. He couldn't get a fourth at the end, but a 5-1 decision of Dunn kept Wood unbeaten on the year.
Behind Wood, Jordan Wertz scored a bronze medal at 195 with his 4-2 decision of Kittanning's Jacob Robb. Jakob Campbell (106), Lucas Miller (126) and Eddie Kriczky (138) placed fourth in their respective weight classes - all on the short end of decisions of two points or less.
Dylan Wertz (145) and Cody Richmond (170) scored fifths while Gregg Harvey (160) placed seventh.
Boyertown's 179 team points put it behind team champion Bethlehem Catholic (201) in the 34-school field.
Hill School 60, Haverford 47: Bryce Allen scored a season-high 22 points as the Blues remained unbeaten in taking the Don McBride Tournament championship.
Allen, a sophomore point guard, erupted for 16 second-half points and finished with five assists, five rebounds and five steals in helping Hill (4-0) break open a 20-15 halftime lead and earn tourney MVP honors.
James Fives (11 points) and John Carroll (10 points, 11 rebounds) also made all-tourney squad for the Blues.
Father Judge 56, Pope John Paul II 34: Jamir Coleman scored a game-high 23 points as Father Judge handed the Golden Panthers their first loss of the season in a non-league encounter.
James Bleming scored nine points for PJP (3-1).
