The Bear River wrestling team fell behind early, but recorded pins in three of its final six matches to take a 39-12 home-mat, dual-meet win over Johnson West (Sacramento) Thursday.

“It feels like the team is starting to put things together. Our coaches have done a really good job preparing us because when we get someone on their back, we usually get the pin,” said Bear River’s 215-pounder Clay Reason, who upped his overall record to 12-8 with a pin at the one minute, 29 second mark of the first period.

Kyle Tremewan and Josh Jaquier also recorded pins in the win.

Tremewan, who wrestled as a sophomore but sat out last season, improved to 18-6 with a pin with 20 seconds remaining in the first period of his 125-pound weight class match.

Jaquier led 9-1 after the first, then ended his 130-pound match with 1:35 left in the second period

Jaquier moved to 21-4.

“We wrestled pretty well tonight,” Bruin co-head coach Nathan Hodges said. “Our first couple guys didn’t shoot, so we fell behind. (But the rest of the guys responded well).”

Jon Cummings never trailed in his 9-2 win at 140 pounds.

Kevin Gregory won his first varsity match of the season with a 2-0 decision in the 145-pound weight class. Michael Richards also pulled out a win with a 5-2 decision at 160 pounds.

Bear River’s Adrian Cummings won 13-0 in a 152-pound exhibition match.

Next up for Bear River is the Pioneer Valley League Tournament at Lincoln noon Feb. 14.
