Yeo, Glotfelty notch four-win days

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Will Yeo (Lexington Park, Md./Great Mills) went 4-0 at 197 to help lift McDaniel to a 2-2 showing at the North/South Duals hosted by Ursinus in non-conference wrestling action on Saturday.

Brock Glotfelty (Grantsville, Md./Northern Garrett) added a 4-0 day of his own at heavyweight for the Green Terror (2-5), including three forfeits to help improve his career record to 108-20 – four wins shy of matching the career mark for wins.

McDaniel opened the day with back-to-back wins, notching a come-from-behind victory over Hunter 22-19 before downing MIT 33-16 for its first two dual wins of the season.

The Green Terror closed the day with a 28-15 loss to College of New Jersey and fell 29-9 to Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Against the Hawks, McDaniel fell into a 19-3 hole but won the final four bouts to take the win.

Chris Urps (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) started the comeback with a 12-0 major decision at 174 before Scott Forrester (Manchester, N.J./Manchester Twp.) secure the match with a 6-0 win. Yeo and Glotfelty took forfeits for the final 12 points of the match.

Tom Goretsas (Hampstead, Md./North Carroll) notched the Green Terror's other win of the match, tallying a 7-1 victory at 133.

Against the Engineers, four straight McDaniel victories after an opening Sam Shames first-period pin at 125 propelled the Green Terror to victory.

Goretsas won his second match of the day, tallying a 9-3 victory before Tim Hall (Westminster, Md./Westminster) added a 48-second fall at 141 for an 8-6 lead.

A Logan Yox (Westminster, Md./Liberty) 15-3 major decision and Tom Boehm (Sea Cliff, N.Y./North Shore) forefeit win made it an 18-6 lead.

Urps added a 37-second fall while Yeo was a 6-2 winner. Glotfelty notched his second forfeit win of the day.

Against the Lions, Mike Tancredi (Wall, N.J./Wall Twp.) recorded an 8-2 win at 141 as McDaniel's only points until the final two bouts. Yeo won by fall in 2:44 while Glotfelty recorded yet another forfeit.

Against the Warhawks, the same three wrestlers were victorious for the Green Terror – all by decision. Tancredi won 3-2 while Yeo was victorious, 7-5. Glotfelty rounded out the day's action with a 6-0 win.
