A healthy Rocklin High wrestling squad played host to their second Sierra Foothill League dual meet and defeated Roseville 51-30.

The Thunder jumped out an early 12-0 lead on pins by Alexander Goyhene and Michael Cole. The Tigers roared back to knot the score and then picked up a third win with their second fall of the match.

Then Rocklin’s Andrew Tyson (152 pounds) and Kaige Miller (160) restored the Thunder’s lead 27-24. Roseville picked up a pin for its 30th point but that’s where it ended.

Junior varsity replacement Collin Chambers pinned the Tigers’ Eduardo Ortega at 182 pounds and the sweep was on. Rocklin’s Kyle Grant got a pin in the second period of the 192-pound bout and the two final matches were forfeits by Roseville to complete the 51-30 victory.

“That’s how good we are when we have everybody in the lineup,” said Rocklin head coach Torrean Tyus. “We’re taking it day-by-day, match-by-match.”

Tyus said the team is finally starting to recover from illness and injury. The Thunder were scheduled to host Granite Bay’s Grizzlies Wednesday.
