What started out as a back-and-forth affair, with the teams splitting the first four matches to arrive at a 6-6 tie, quickly spun in Archbishop Curley’s favor, as the host Friars won nine of the final 10 score a convincing, 55-8, MIAA A Conference wrestling victory over visiting Calvert Hall, on Senior Night at Curley.

With the Friars celebrating five seniors, Curley senior Corey Huntley (138) secured a second period pin over Matt Wagner of Calvert Hall.  At 145, senior Brooks Eibner would follow with a 3-1 loss to Austin Seivold, in a great nail biter, before another senior was Fred Johnson (160), was able to pin his opponent in the third period.

The other two seniors, Morgan McColgan (170) and Brock Bushyager (182), also came away victorious.  McClogan had an 11-2 major decision 11-2 over Alex Crum and Bushyager pinned Dalton Negm, midway through the second period.

Curley also got pins from Tyshawn Williams (132) and James Greer (195). Brendan Hollingsworth (106), Mike King (113) and Kai Lee (152) also won decisions for the Friars and the team collected a pair of forfeits.

Calvert Hall’s other two victories came from Mitchell Beverage (120) and Jordan Huey (120) and the Cardinals had one team point deducted.
