Despite losing the evening’s first five matches and following into a 30-0 hole, Catonsville stormed back with eight straight wins, including six pins, to beat Calvert Hall in wrestling, Tuesday, 44-36, in Catonsville.

The match started at 152 and Calvert Hall got rolling with consecutive pins from Declan MaCarthy, Hunter Crowley (160) Ian Park (170), Joe Scott (182) and Dalton Negm (195).

The Comets, however, were unfazed as they moved into the strength of their lineup, turning things around when Naseef Kareem decisioned Nick Donatelli, 15-9, at 220, to put the Comets on the board.

Danny Bruno (285) followed with a pin and Robert Johnson (106) collected a forfeit to pull the Comets within, 30-15.

Catonsville’s Eduardo Kelly (113) then came up with a first period pin of Noah Quinn to start a streak of four straight falls for the Comets. Kelly Lassiter (120), Andrew Southwell (126), Jared Martin (132) and Connor Hurd (138) did the decking as the Comets took a 44-30 lead to clinch the victory.

Calvert Hall’s Nick Hudson (145) closed the match with the Cardinals’ sixth fall.
