Owen J. Roberts will host Upper Perkiomen at 2 p.m. Saturday in a matchup of two of the top wrestling teams in the Pioneer Athletic Conference.

The Wildcats are 12-0 overall, 6-0 in the PAC-10. Upper Perk is 14-4, 5-1.

The match will feature a handful of lightweight bouts involving some of District 1's top  wrestlers.

Owen J. Roberts coach Stephen DeRafelo said he's looking forward to bouts at 106, 113, and 126 pounds. At 126, Owen J. Roberts junior Colby Frank (11-3) likely will face senior Dylan Steffenino (3-1). Both received honorable mention in the most recent District 1 rankings from pa-wrestling.com.

Steffenino is one of three brothers who wrestle for Upper Perkiomen.

Sophomore Dustin Steffenino (23-5) likely will meet senior Aston White (16-9) at 106. Senior Dante Steffenino (26-3), Dylan’s twin, will wrestle at 120, where he's ranked No. 4 in District 1 by pa-wrestling.com.

“We have to limit the damage in those matchups," DeRafelo said about the Steffenino brothers. "We can’t give up pins. If we can limit the damage, we should be in good shape."

At 138, Upper Perkiomen senior Wolfgang McStravick (28-3), ranked No. 2, will try to earn his 19th pin of the season when he faces Wildcats sophomore Demetri D'Orsaneo (17-8), who is ranked fourth.

Junior 132-pounder Dan Jordan (10-9) will be out Saturday because of a concussion, Upper Perkiomen coach Tom Hontz said.
