CENTRAL YORK- The Central York varsity wrestling team dropped a 48-10 decision to Dover High on Dec. 13.

Dover won the first eight matches, which included a pair of first-period falls and a forfeit, en route to the easy triumph.

The lightweights provided the bright spots for Central York.

Matt Houck (103), Dylan Chatterton (120) and Sammy Butler (126) earned decisions in convincing manners.

Houck hit two takedowns in his 4-1 decision against Kyle Beamer, while Chatterton jumped out to an early 6-2 lead and cruised to a 10-5 decision against Zach Pelky.

Butler only led Dover's Nate Stauffer 2-0 after the opening period before exploding for seven second-period points that keyed the junior's 13-1 major decision.

For new Panthers Coach Chris Yentzer, patience is a key word this winter.

"I have a team loaded with young wrestlers who work hard and are trying to learn a whole new wrestling system," he said. "We're wrestling really small, up out of our normal weight classes."
