Timmy Kane and Charlie Kane took home State Open titles, Dan Ebert placed third, and coach Jason Shaughnessy’s Fairfield Warde team finished fifth at the State Open in New Haven on Saturday.

Newtown (159) won the team title, followed by Danbury (112.5), New Milford (110.5), Simsbury (100), Warde (98) and Trumbull (88).

The Kane brothers each will take 44-0 records into the New England Tournament to be held in North Andover (Mass.) on March 6-7.

Timmy Kane battled Danbury’s Jeremy Field through two scoreless periods, before the sophomore escaped with 1:10 remaining to win the 126-pound title  by a score of 1-0. Fields was the Class LL champion.

Charlie Kane met Class S champion Kieran Duggan from Nonnewaug for the 138-pound crown.

A junior, Kane scored a two-point takedown at 1:13 of the opening period and did a great job riding out Duggan (40-3) in the scoreless second frame.

Duggan made it 3-1 to get within range in the third, but Kane scored another takedown with 53 seconds remaining to claim the title 5-1.

Ebert, the Class L runner-up at 145 pounds, took on Ashton Gyenizs from Daniel Hand-Madison in the consolation final and controlled the Tiger throughout.

Ebert led 2-0 after one, and from the neutral position gained a takedown and two back points before pinning in 3:24 to garner third place.

Alex Steele (two wins at 113 pounds), Jack Price (two wins at 120), Aaron Beinstein (132), Aaron Addotey (182), Jordi Proskinitopo (two wins at 195), John Ocano (220) and Tyler Mazut (two wins at heavyweight) all contributed key points to Warde’s finish.
