Peters Principle

Driven sophomore champion sparks Timberlane to second-place in team standings

(Continued)

Other third places went to Londonderry’s Will Bean, who avenged a dual-meet loss to Lonergan with a 6-4 decision in the 160-pound consolation finals; Londonderry’s Kyle Byrd, who was third at 170; Haverhill transfer Jordan Faulkner, who slipped past Londonderry’s Richard Bilodeau at 195; and Lawrence’s Anfernee Green, who edged Bohle 4-3 in overtime.

Pinkerton’s Kevin Ell settled for fourth at 220 after losing a tough 4-3 overtime decision in the consolation finals.

Mighty Mt. Anthony

Defending New England champion Mt. Anthony was as good as advertised, placing five wrestlers in the finals and crowning three champions. Troy Gassaway (120), Austin Price (182) and heavyweight Jesse Webb were all impressive winners. Webb is a defending New England champion, Gassaway was a New England runner-up last year and Price was fourth at New England.

Besides Lafountain, Mt. Anthony also had a runner-up at 195 in Tyler Mattison, who was a late pin victim at the hands of Nashua North’s Joe Chmelski.

In the most recent national poll, Mt. Anthony was ranked 25th.

“We’re very happy with the way we wrestled,” said Mt. Anthony coach Scott Legacy. “Every one of our kids won at least two matches and our stars came through like we hoped they would.”
