Dan Ebert, Alex Lobsenz, Charlie Kane and Tim Kane brought home individual titles when coach Jason Shaughnessy’s Fairfield Warde wrestling team placed second at the 2015 Joe Sikorski FCIAC Wrestling Championships in New Canaan on Saturday.

Danbury High (293) won the team title, followed by Warde (222.5), Trumbull (208.5), Fairfield Ludlowe (121) and Greenwich (114).
The Mustangs placed 12 of their 14 wrestlers and will next compete at the Class L Tournament at Bristol Central on Feb. 20-21.

“We had a strong finish after a tough semifinal round,” Shaughnessy said. “We put four in the final and had four champions.

“We also had some kids wrestle tough placing third: Aaron Addotey, Mike Pellegrino, John Ocana. Our goal was to have 14 people place. We will look to work hard this week and have a strong showing at states.”

Ebert, a senior, pinned Will Mills of Danbury in the 145-pound final.

A junior, Lobsenz took the 195-pound weight class with a 2-0 decision over Danbury’s Eric Henry.

Charlie Kane continued his fine wrestling as a junior, after missing his sophomore season with an injury, by working his way past Ridgefield High’s Kevin Side, 5-1, at 138 pounds.

Tim Kane, a sophomore, earned a 3-1 decision over Danbury’s Paulo Freitas at 126 pounds.

Pellegrino, a senior, won his 160-pound consolation final from Danbury’s Andrew Marquis with a 17-6 major decision.

Addotey, a senior, took third at 182 pounds with a 10-8 win over Ridgefield’s Kyle McCormick.

Also bringing home the bronze for the Mustangs was junior 220-pounder Ocano, who decisioned Darien’s Spencer Stovall 3-1.
Senior Aaron Beinstein (132 pounds), junior Jack Price (120 pounds) and freshman Alex Steele (113 pounds) placed fourth.

Senior Tyler Mazut (heavyweight) and freshman Luke Bender (106 pounds) were sixth.
