It didn't take long for Sheffield to earn its 12th win of the year and tie the single-season school record on Friday.
In fact, it was just over a half hour when the Wolverines put the finishing touches on a 60-21 win over the Johnsonburg Rams in front of the home crowd at Sheffield Area High School.
"I thought we wrestled pretty well. We wanted to get that tie out of the way," said Sheffield coach Jack Rice. "Cody Anderson did a good job for us. He's had a tough season so far with being sick and having to wrestle up a weight class, and he came out with a big pin (at 170). All the guys wrestled well tonight."

Bridge the gap
Sheffield’s Brandon Johnston works to avoid a pin in the 126-pound match against Johnsonburg’s Cole Myers Friday night at Sheffield Area High School.
Anderson's pin was one of two victories the Wolverines were able to claim on the mat, with Ricky Prosen's pin at 120 pounds being the other. In all, Sheffield received eight forfeits from the Rams, which earned pins at 220 and 145, a decision win at 126, and a victory by forfeit at 132 pounds.
Jeremy Ehrgott (285), Tanner Barr (106), Kyle Holden (113), Jason Rulander (138), Adam Barr (152), Steve Gregerson (160), Dylan Straw (182), and Tyler Bertin (195) all received forfeit wins for Sheffield (12-9).
The Wolverines will return to action next week as they try to break the school record for single-season wins, hosting Clarion on Tuesday and Coudersport on Thursday in their final dual matches of the year. The District 9 Class AA Tournament will be Feb. 22 and 23 at Clarion University.
