Salisbury Hosts Wrestling Tri-Match
It was tough sledding for Salisbury’s wrestlers on Saturday afternoon, as the Knights played host for two of the strongest programs in the region: Trinity-Pawling and Brunswick. While the results were not unexpected – a 12-59 loss to T-P, an even more resounding 12-65 loss to Brunswick – fans in attendance could not help but be impressed by the tenacity of Salisbury’s competitors against some very skilled opponents. Many of the matches went beyond the first round, with several going into the third (final) round before the outcome was settled. Even in the throes of untenable positions, with the inevitability of a pin fast encroaching, these Knights continued to battle back. Certainly, no opponent left the mat without an appreciation and respect for Salisbury’s mettle.
Against T-P, Salisbury’s only points came on forfeits, when the Pride did not have wrestlers to compete at 113 lbs. or at 120 lbs. Salisbury, in turn, forfeited four matches against T-P.
Against Brunswick, both Jaeho Sung (113 lbs.) and Vincent Sprenger (285 lbs.) pinned their counterparts, Sung at 0:37 of round three and Sprenger at 1:29 of the opening round. Brunswick was aided by forfeits in five weight classes where Salisbury did not have entrants.
