CBA/J-D wrestlers go to sectional Dual Meet

F-M starts fast in 43-33 win over West Genny

But CBA/J-D’s 24-21 lead would not hold up. Cortland again won three straight with a pin, major decision and forfeit to go in front for good, and managed to stay on the mat all six minutes in the next two matches.

So even though Cole Murphy (113) beat Dane George 9-1 and Arsen Bagiryan (120) claimed a 7-1 decision over Ian George, CBA/J-D still trailed, 37-31, and needed a pin from Dustin Harris in the finale at 126, but he lost a technical fall to Grant Tinker.

Fayetteville-Manlius, in its lone meet last week, built a big early lead against West Genesee and held on down the stretch to defeat the Wildcats 43-33.

The Hornets had a 26-0 lead because it won the first six matches. Tom Quinlan, in the opener at 152, pinned Cody Ward in 2:08, and three majority decisions followed.

Mark King (160) handled Matt Calascibetta 11-2, with Tim Byrnes (171) doing the same to Paul Potosky 12-1 and Jon Hajduk (182) getting a 12-3 decision over Dalton Elias.

In just 29 seconds, Chris Bortel pinned Brandon Caporin, and the streak ended at 220 with Jake Okun needing an overtime takedown to beat Caleb Blaczenski 3-1.

To make sure the Hornets stayed in front, Will Khalil (99 pounds) took 62 seconds to pin Travis Robbins. Pat Quinlan, wrestling at 126, earned a 20-4 technical fall over Jacob Norton, and Tristan Broddus (138 pounds) clinched the title by blanking Jon Stefano 16-0, another technical fall.
