The Power Cup was a flicker of its former self Feb. 5.
The coveted traveling trophy, awarded each year to the winner of the mountain wrestling rivalry, packed enough drama for a Dixie Cup. Maybe.
Thanks to a rash of injuries, low roster numbers and general gamesmanship, the Evergreen Cougars and Conifer Lobos did just about everything but wrestle in Conifer’s gym. The teams combined to forfeit 11 of the 14 weights, while the only Conifer wrestlers to break a sweat were from the junior varsity squad.
