PHS earned three pins and won four matches by forfeit, and lost only two of the 14 matches. Scoring pins for the Panthers were junior Caden Nicolaus at 145 pounds, junior Ben Meyer at 160 and senior Jesse Schwarten at 220.

PHS freshman Devin Gore racked up an amazing 12 takedowns to ignite a 26-11 technical fall win at 113 in 3:48. The takedown total is the highest for a Panther in one match this season.

Plymouth’s Will Birkholz and Josh Koll won by a major decision at 138 and 152, respectfully.

The Panthers improved their ECC dual record to 1-4 (4-11 overall).

“Devin Gore had another great match – dominating Sonny Barone on his feet,” said PHS head coach Rick Gruber.

“Ben Meyer wrestled a good match against Matt Crowley – wearing him down and pinning him in the second period in a time of 3:17.

“Jesse Schwarten came out fast, taking down Josh Klemm and quickly taking advantage of his position – putting him to his back and pinning him in 1:30,” said Gruber.

“Our kids that wrestled did a great job. Overall, our team continues to wrestle better with each week.”
