Justin Walker started a series of four straight pins – sandwiched around a forfeit – that carried Central Valley to a 55-16 rout of visiting Shadle Park in Greater Spokane League wrestling action Tuesday night.
Trailing Shadle’s Ryan Nelson 5-3 at the end of the first round in the 160-pound match, Walker’s pin at 3:20 broke a 16-all tie after the Highlanders (3-3) had won the first three weight classes. Nick Beeler followed with a 32-second pin of Shadle’s Luke Miller at 171 and the Bears (6-1) didn’t lose another match.
