Wrestling Has Strong Showing in Tri-Meet

January 16, 2011

Yesterday morning the wrestling team took on 3 different schools in a home tri-meet that brought plenty of action to the mats of Swanson Gymnasium.  In the 1st tilt the Bears met a former foe from our days in the Ivy League, the Hackley School.  The Brook gained a quick 12-0 lead courtesy of 2 Hackley forfeits at the 96 and 103-pound classes.  In the 112-pound match Jeffrey Fung battled his opponent for 6 minutes and worked his way out of several precarious situations to prevent the Hornets from getting a pin while falling 8-3.  Hackley followed with a pin in the 119-pound class to make the score 12-9, but in the 125-pound class Austin Hulse pinned his man for the 4th time in as many matches with just 2 seconds remaining in the 2nd period to extend the Bears’ lead to 18-9.  The pin set off a string of blue and white victories as Anthony Garone followed with a 4-0 win in the 130-pound division, Wyatt Piazza pinned his man in 1:07 in the 135-pound match, Kevin Palmer dominated his Hornet opponent 11-1 in the 140-pound match and Ben Cotten pinned his man in just 38 seconds in the 145-pound class to build a 36-9 edge.  A pin and forfeit for Hackley followed but Tyler Anderson righted the ship with a hard fought 5-2 win against his much taller opponent in the 171-pound match.  The win was the last for the Brook as they were pinned in the 189 and 215-pound matches and forfeited the 285-pound match, but the 2 forfeits, 3 pins and 3 wins were enough to give the Bears a 40-39 win against their former rival.

The Stony Brook grapplers continued their winning ways against Archbishop Stepinac.  The Bears again benefitted from 2 forfeits at the start and, after the Crusaders took a win in the 112-pound match, the Brook took wins in 5 of the next 6 matches as Paul Chung pinned his man in 2:06 and Hulse, Garone, Daniel Bennett and Palmer earned forfeits.  A final highlight for the Bears was Anderson’s pin in 1:35 as the blue and white rolled to a 48-35 victory.

The Bears fell to Iona Prep in the final match of the day 24-58, but pins by Hulse and Anderson kept them undefeated on the season.  Hunter Hulse earned a win and Piazza earned a pin against the Gaels.

The blue and white matmen will face Port Jefferson on Wednesday 1/19 at home @ 4pm.
