The Colby Community College wrestling team topped the Neosho County Community College Panthers 27-21 Friday night in the first of three home duals the Trojans have this season.

CCC, ranked No. 20 nationally, did not pin anybody on the evening but picked up four wins by decision. At 133 pounds, Omaha, Neb., freshman Otis Rollins won a major decision 11-2. Shortly after Marysville freshman Chris Deters took the 141 pound match, 10-4. Lumberton, N.C., sophomore Monquez Townsend dominated his opponent with a 21-3 technical fall win at 165 pounds, and freshman Gabriel Ledesma, Kearney, Neb., held on for a 4-3 win at 285 pounds.

The Trojans return to the mat Dec. 14 in a 7 p.m. home dual against Western Wyoming Community College.
