Brady Foster and Kiefer Duncan each captured titles in the 24-team Marty Williams wrestling invitational at Mahomet-Seymour High School on Saturday.

Only Mahomet had more champions than Mattoon, which finished eighth. The Bulldogs finished one point behind first-place Naperville Central.

Foster captured the 113-pound title by dominating New Rochelle’s Xavier Villalobos, 9-2 in the championship match to earn his third tourney title this season. The senior is now 23-1 overall. Villalobos dropped to 29-3.

“Brady Foster has a lot of confidence in his abilities and made very little mistakes today,” Mattoon coach Brett Porter said. “He was able to score points throughout the match and get a major decision in the finals.”

Duncan scored the first takedown in beating Chatham-Glenwood’s Aden Byal, 3-1, in the 145-pound championship match to win a third tournament title. He improved to 28-2 overall while Byal fell to 28-5.

“He controlled his opponent with his mat wrestling,” Porter said. “Winning close matches happens with good competition.”

Sophomore Korbin Bateman also reached a championship before getting pinned by Normal West’s Austin Johnston 80 seconds into the 126-pound match. Bateman is now 23-4 overall.

After losing in the semifinals, junior Leo Meyer posted a 5-0 decision over eighth-ranked Colton Crowley of Mahomet to take third and improve to 24-6.
