Cowboys blast Cougars 60-9

Crook County drops just two matches in 60-9 rout of Mountain View


The Crook County Cowboys left no doubt who was the better team as they blasted the host Mountain View Cougars 60-9 in Thursday night Intermountain Hybrid wrestling action.

Despite the lopsided victory, Crook County head coach Jake Huffman still believes there is room for improvement from the Cowboys.by: LON AUSTIN/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Gunnar Robirts works to control Mountain View's Spencer Klein. Robirts pinned Klein late in the first round of their 195-pound match as the Cowboys dominated the dual 60-9.

“I thought we came out flat,” he said. “We took care of business, but we came out a little bit sluggish.”

Huffman might get an argument from Mountain View head coach Les Combs who told The Bulletin the Cowboys were “probably the best team that I’ve coached against in the 30 or so years I’ve been coaching.

Mountain View’s Kaleb Winebarger briefly broke Crook County’s momentum when he outpointed Ryder Shinkle 10-6 in their 145-pound match.

However, when Colbran Meeker took a tight 5-4 victory at 152 pounds, the Cowboys quickly regained momentum. Tyler Berger (160) and Brendan Harkey (170) earned first-round pins to put the Cowboys ahead 27-3. When Clark Woodward earned a forfeit at 182 pounds, the Cowboys had already locked up the dual.

“I was just ready to go out and tear some kids up,” Harkey said. “The team was doing good, but I think everyone on the team still has room for improvement.”

Gunnar Robirts' (195) and Trevor Rasmussen's (220) first-round pins followed by Jason Williams winning his 285-pound match by forfeit extended the Crook County lead to 51-3.

The Cowboys will take both their varsity and jv squads to Dallas on Saturday where they take on some of the top teams in Oregon in the Brunner Invitational.

“There’s always room for improvement somewhere,” Huffman said. “We will look at what we did tonight and go back and fix it and be ready to go for Saturday. There’s some good teams there. We are going to just continue to compete and try to improve everyday.”
