It was a big night for the Archbishop Curley wrestling team, Wednesday, as the Friars routed Calvert Hall 60-18 in a MIAA A Conference dual meet.
Curley did, however, have to deal with one surprising setback, as Tyrone Roper was caught by Calvert Hall’s Jarrell Mayo in the opening seconds of their 220 pound match and pinned in 11 seconds.
The match also opened with two Calvert Hall pins, as Henry Scott (152) and Evan Crum (160) got their team out to a 12-0 lead.
Curley got on the board with fall from Josh Laubach (170) and a 7-3 decision by Garrett Butt (182) over Cardinal Michael Edwards. The Friars took their first lead with a forfeit at 195, but Calvert Hall went right back on top with Mayo’s fall.
After that, Curly sandwiched a pair of forfeit victories around a fall by Ryan Smith (106) to build a 33-18 lead. At 120, Curley’s Nick Kubrick defeated Erik Embers, 6-1, before the Friars closed the night with back-to-back pins by Kennell Washington (126) and Ryan Becker (132) and two more forfeits.
