Late rally lifts McDaniel
Green Terror wins three of final four matches for 17-15 win over Waynesburg
WESTMINSTER, Md. - McDaniel won three of the final four matches, including getting major decisions from Will Yeo (Lexington Park, Md./Great Mills) and Brock Glotfelty (Grantsville, Md./Northern Garrett), to take a 17-15 victory over Waynesburg in non-conference wrestling action on Wednesday.
The Green Terror (3-3) and Yellow Jackets (2-4) split the 10 bouts with five victories apiece but the two major decisions proved to be the difference.
Clinging to a 3-2 lead but facing overtime with Matt Zimmerman's 1 minute, 38 seconds of advantage time, Scott Forrester (Manchester, N.J./Manchester Twp.) took his shot off a restart late in the third period and recorded the bout-winning takedown just before the final horn sounded for a 5-3 victory at 174.
Yeo notched a takedown and near-fall late in the third period to extend his 13-9 lead to a 18-9 victory and earn a major decision to give the Green Terror a 13-12 edge.
A late three-point near fall gave Cody Catalina turned a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 victory at 197.
Glotfelty recorded a 10-0 win at heavyweight to overcome the two-point deficit and give his team the victory.
Alex Crown staked the Yellow Jackets to a 3-0 lead in the match with a 6-2 victory at 125.
Tommy Goretsas (Hampstead, Md./North Carroll) evened the match with a 2-1 win at 133. After a pair of escapes in the final two periods, Goretsas recorded a takedown midway through the first sudden victory period for the victory.
Nick Garber re-established a three-point margin for Waynesburg with a 5-0 win at 141.
Keyed by a four-point near fall in the second period, Brent Lowe (Dumfries, Va./Forest Park) once again knotted the match with an 8-2 win at 149.
A 7-0 Jon Sanko victory at 157 once again gave the Yellow Jackets the advantage before a Jared Roberts 8-2 win at 165 stretched the lead to 12-6.
The Green Terror returns to action at home against No. 12 Delaware Valley on Friday. Match time is 7 p.m.
