2. Keegan Earns Championship Match
The much improved Keegan Brettle won a contenders match on the second day of Ironfest defeating the likes of Lex Lennock, Roswell and Jay Sorbet. Brettle is certainly on some what of a winning streak after wins in Oberon against Jorg Wolfgang, Roswell and a win against Alastar McKlir on the first day of Ironfest. Keegan also went on to compete in the first ever Lithgow Valley cup finals match but was eliminated by a flying Jengis Kong off the top rope. Keegan will no doubt be ranking high when the official rankings are released.
- Veteran Draven Captures First Even Lithgow Valley Cup
Penrith’s Dean Draven was crowned the first ever Lithgow Valley Cup winner on the first day of Ironfest. Draven had his first win against rookie D.B Roberton to advance to the triple threat match against Jengis Kong and Keegan Brettle. Keegan was the first to be eliminated which left veterans Kong and Draven to battle it out for the cup. Draven managed to fend off a clothesline from Kong and locked in the crossface which led to a tap out. Draven now has a future Blue Mtns world heritage title match and climbs the official heritage rankings.
