“I thought our kids wrestled real well,” head coach David Icenhower said.  “I think we were just a little too physical for them.”

The Lions started out slow as junior Dan Hughes didn’t score a point until the final minute of his match, but those two points gave Hughes a 2-1 victory.

From that match on the Lions kept the momentum on their side, winning seven of the last nine matches.

Freshman Brian Broderick scored the most points in a single match for the Lions with a 21-5 technical fall victory over sophomore Steve Massey.  The lone shutout of the night came in a 14-0 victory by junior Adam Koziol.

Junior Justin Bonitatis improved to 7-0 on the season after securing a 8-3 over junior Matt Magill.

“We are not a real fancy team, but were a grind team,” Icenhower said. “With this team it worked pretty well, we just ground them.”

The Lions will look to continue their winning streak this weekend at the Oneonta State Invitational on Saturday, Nov. 21.
