Myron Bryant and Kamron Whitewater went undefeated the entire way through the Thunder Holiday Duels, helping the Page Sand Devils finish up their weekend Saturday in St. George, Utah.

Bryant, wrestling in the 182-pound weight class, recorded three pins on Saturday, and Whitewater, hitting the mats at 113 pounds, notched two for the Sand Devils, who went 3-1 on Friday to start the tourney. Whitewater needed less than a minute to get both his pins, and Bryant had two of his pins in the first period and one in the second. Both had falls in the 46-36 win against Enterprise and in the 51-24 victory against Wayne.

At 106 pounds, helping the lightweights in their role in the rout of Wayne, Ikaika Uejo had a first-period pin and his teammate Zachery Ruiz at 120 pounds followed suit.

Page 138-pound junior Joseph Stansfield, was dominant on Saturday, collecting four pins for the Sand Devils, including one in the second period that lifted his team over All Star, 42-36. With the match against All Star tied up at 36, Stansfield figured out his opponent on the way to getting the fall after entering the second period down 2-1.

Stansfield put a second-period near fall on the scoresheet in his match against a Carbon opponent before putting his opponent's shoulders to the mat in the third period. It wasn't enough, however, as Carbon came away with the 39-36 victory over Page, which entered the weekend without two of its better wrestlers in the middle of the weight classes.

Helping Page top Hurricane, 39-29, Terran Blackgoat allowed his opponent two near falls but came out ahead with a third-period pin. Blackgoat was one of three Sand Devils to collect sub-1-minute falls against Enterprise as well. His pin came at 59 seconds, with heavyweight Levi Telshaw needing :26 and Whitewater using :29.

Taylor Nez (195 pounds) also had a key victory against Enterprise, edging his opponent 8-7 for the decision. Telshaw also battled through a nail-biter, narrowly beating his Wayne opponent 2-1 on a reverse.

Zachery Ruiz (120) added two pins on the day for Page, with Joseph Smith (126) and Lorin Benally (160) each contributing a pin a piece.
