The Lackawanna League Division I and II wrestling titles have come down to the last day of the season with undefeated Delaware Valley (3-0) and West Scranton (3-0) facing off tonight at 6:45 at West Scranton High School for the Division I crown. Honesdale (6-0) and Western Wayne (6-0) will battle for the Division II title tonight at 6 in a tri-match at Mountain View High School.

Delaware Valley has eight division titles over the past nine years. Honesdale is the defending Division II champ after snapping Western Wayne’s 52-match league win streak and run of seven straight division crowns.

Earlier in the season, a few wrestlers on both sides faced off in the later rounds of the Lackawanna League championships Dec. 16. Here’s a look at those matches and some things to watch for:

At the Lackawanna League championships, West Scranton’s Jeremy Seymour battled Delaware Valley’s Andrew Kidd to a tie in the 182-pound final before getting a takedown with nine seconds left in the third period to win the match, 6-4, and capture the title.

Both wrestlers have been key to their teams this season. Seymour won the 182-pound crown at the Tunkhannock Holiday Classic, defeating Tunkhannock’s Connor Munley, 1-0, in the final. He also has a win over All-Region wrestler Tyler Neglia, of Wallenpaupack, by a 6-3 decision.

Kidd went 5-0 at the Parkland Duals. He also defeated Scranton’s Brandon Crusen, who finished second at the league tournament, by pin in 3:40 during a Division I league match. The win started a stretch of six straight pins that propelled the Warriors to a 54-21 win over the Knights. Kidd also topped Neglia in a 5-0 decision.

Both have wrestled at 182 and 195 pounds during the season so a rematch could be in place.

Delaware Valley’s Joey Porco topped West Scranton’s Tony Caramanno by major decision (9-1) to capture the 113-pound title at the Lackawanna League championships.






At 182 pounds, Honesdale’s Jake Kabonick pinned Western Wayne’s Derek Swoyer at 4:41 for third place at the Lackawanna League championships. Kabonick has been solid for Honesdale, while getting a tough draw at 182 pounds. He has losses to some of the best in the league, Kidd in the semifinals at the league championships and Seymour in a nonleague match. Among six league matches and two nonleague matches, he’s collected four pins, including two in Tuesday’s Division II tri-match with Lackawanna Trail and Elk Lake.  

At 285 pounds, Western Wayne’s Jack McAllister topped Honesdale’s Ken Huber by a 5-2 decision for fifth place at the Lackawanna League championships. McAllister has moved down in weight to 220 pounds, while Huber has stayed put so there probably won’t be a rematch.

Western Wayne’s Cole Fuller didn’t wrestle at the league championships, but is on a tear, helping lead the Wildcats to an undefeated league mark. The All-Region wrestler had a pair of pins in Tuesday’s matches against Valley View and Montrose to set up the winner-take-all division championship, and earned pins at 285 pounds in the four other league matches. He also won the 220-pound title at the Tunkhannock Holiday Classic with a 5-0 decision over NE Bradford’s Dawson Brown.

Honesdale won the team title at the Lackawanna Trail Duals.
