MCALESTER — The Ada High School wrestling team got pinfall victories from Kohner Gallagher and Blaine Wright but couldn’t catch McAlester in a 45-26 road matchup Tuesday night.
The night wasn’t without controversy.
During a testy 126-pound match between Ada’s Chris Wilber and McAlester’s Corbin Price, the MHS grappler lifted his Ada opponent and slammed him down according to a report in the McAlester News-Capital. The score was knotted at 2-2 at that point. However, during an injury timeout, Ada received a coach’s misconduct for a heated exchange regarding the slam and Price hung on for a 4-2 win.
Ada’s Tre Ivy got the Cougars on the board with a 13-2 decision over Jackson Kidd at 132-pounds.
Justin Blake of Ada held an early 4-0 lead in his 138-pound match with McAlester’s Andrew Major before suffering a pinfall loss in the third period.
Ada’s Max Rhynes rolled to a 13-2 win over McAlester foe Caleb Squyers at 170 pounds.
Gallagher’s victory came at 195 pounds while Wright’s pin was in the heavyweight match.
Wyatt Jarvis got a forfeit at 220 pounds for the Cougars.

Sophomore Nathan Machin and freshman William Thomas recorded key pinfall victories to help the Ada High wrestling team secure a 42-29 Senior Night victory over McLoud Thursday night before a loud crowd inside the Cougar Activity Center.
The Redskins entered the matchup ranked No. 20 in Class 4A.
Machin, who was appearing in his first live match in weeks, made short work of Brand Becknell of McLoud in the 126-pound match with a pin at the 33.5 mark of the first quarter.
“It was good to see Nathan back on the mat. He’s been out for a few weeks with some injuries. We’re glad to get him back and get him healthy for regionals,” said Ada head coach Kyle Bohannon. “It was a good match for him. He looked solid, did some good things and came away with a big win for us.”

The Ada High wrestling team was sick, battered and bruised heading into Senior Night duals with tradition-rich programs Carl Albert and Shawnee Thursday night inside the Cougar Activity Center.
And it showed.
The Titans used four forfeit victories to edge Ada 31-25 in the opener, and the Wolves had five forfeit wins in their 52-18 runaway win over the Cougars.
Ada had at least five starters out of action because of sickness and injuries, and a few more reserves were sidelined. Those among the injured were two of Ada’s big guns — Carter Patterson, ranked No. 3 in Class 5A at 113 pounds, and Teondre Harrison, No. 6 at 170 pounds. Both of those wrestlers are nursing knee injuries, but both are expected to return later this season.
“We’ve never had sickness like this in our wrestling room before. Of course, we’ve been wrestling and breathing and sweating on each other in practice every day,” said Ada head coach Kyle Bohannon. “Back in December, we talked about the grind that was going to happen this month, but I don’t think we anticipated the sickness to be as widespread as it was.”
The Ada coach said all things considered, it was a good night for his bunch.
