Campbell 52, Mascoma 24

West Canaan — Shorthanded Mascoma had to settle for several forfeit victories in its season opener.

“We have a really young team,” Royals coach Rick Simula said. “We’ve still got some guys trying to make weight and coming back from injury, so we don’t quite have a full team yet.”

Simula praised the efforts of freshmen Cam Stebbins (106 pounds) and Brian Lowell (113), who lost on points.

Next for Mascoma is Saturday’s Bronco Invitational at Alvirne High.

Newport 48, Kearsarge 12

Jordan Warburton (120), Garrett Harold (126), Marius Edwards (132 pounds), Josh Sharron (138), Dylan Palmer (160) and Gavin Lovely (182) all won for the Tigers, who also won three matches by forfeit.

“It always feels good to start the season with a solid win,” Newport coach Cole Boone said in an email. “We matched up well against Kearsarge, and I was pleased with the guys who stepped up when we bumped them to different weight classes. Josh Sharron and Garrett Harold had tough matches that resulted in two close decisions in our favor.”

Newport will compete in the Con-Val Early Bird Tournament on Saturday.
