With wins to end the week over Dover (43-28) and Sussex Central (30-26) the Polytech Panthers wrestling squad has now won seven dual-meets in a row to improve to 7-2 on the year.
On Thursday, the Panthers dispatched Dover 43-28 thanks to five wins by pin-fall.
After three bouts, Dover took control early in the matchup thanks to back-to-back victories from Anthony Fisher and Stanton. Spenser Hahn had given Polytech the lead after a first-bout pin of Williams, until Fisher defeated Nate Jackson by a major decision 10-2, and Austin Stanton scored a pin-fall victory over Iosif Drane.
The Panthers responded with their big-guns in the next two bouts. First, Kody Stevens took care of business with a pin-fall victory over Dylan Miller. Then, Andrew Schmeusser followed up Stevens’ pin-fall with a victory of his own; a 7-4 decision over Dover’s Jordan Olfus.
Polytech remained in control after a forfeit victory for Josh Price at 138 before Dover responded with two straight decisions from Dannie Powell and Taqee Williams.
With the outcome up in the air, Polytech took control for good after two straight pin-fall victories from Austin Rains and Rob Kelemen. A forfeit win for Jon’Del Dyer gave Dover some hope but that was ended after a David Myers 13-2 major decision victory over Kojoessel Sagoe and a Mark Mullnack pin-fall over Chad Carroll to seal it for Polytech.
The Panthers followed up their victory Thursday with another on Friday night, against Sussex Central. The Panthers were able to pull away thanks to pin-fall victories from Mullnack and Hahn to improve their record to 7-2.
