Harmony Duals Recap: Parker 14th

Northeast Florida Matmen staff report

HARMONY — Going to the Longhorn Christmas Duals for the third weekend of December has felt, at times, like a lump of coal as well as a sugarplum for the Terry Parker wrestlers.

The Braves get the sugarplum of mat time against out-of-town wrestlers in an unfamiliar environment, and the lump of coal sometimes comes in the results. That was true last weekend, as Parker went 0-7 on the day, placing 14th out of 15 teams in the event.

Parker took losses to Boone (66-15) and East River (60-18) on Friday, with Landon Dains (170) and Evan Jefferson (285) the only Braves to win twice. Dains had a decision against Boone, while Boakai Kanneh (182) picked up the Braves’ only fall on the day.

On Saturday, the Braves fell in pool play to Cypress Creek (63-18), Oviedo (52-12), Celebration (42-29) and Rockledge (72-6), and lost in the 13th place match to Osceola (Pinellas), 66-9.

Both of the Braves’ wins versus Cypress Creek were forfeits, but Kanneh had a fall against Oviedo, and Jason Reed (152) and Dains picked up pins against Celebration. Dains also had a fall for Rockledge’s only points.

Against Osceola, Reed won by decision and Dains by fall. For the weekend, Dains was 6-1, while Kanneh was 4-3.

Terry Parker is now off until its Army Duals on January 13-14.


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
