Roundup: Brunswick wrestling rolls over Canterbury
Updated 11:15 pm, Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Brunswick (18-2) traveled to New Milford and quickly took care of business, beating Canterbury 69-6 in a dual meet. Injury and illness have hit Canterbury hard, forcing the Saints to forfeit five matches.
However, there were some closely contested matches, including an overtime battle in the 160-pound weight class. Junior Gregg Nabhan (14-6) emerged the winner in `sudden victory' overtime.
Nabhan was the aggressor for the entire match and was able to finally get in on a good double-leg, lift his opponent off the ground, and return him to the mat for the takedown. The 3-1 victory adds to Nabhan's tally of wins by close decision.
Pins were earned by sophomore Jack Jones (10-9), senior Petey Briggs (10-4), junior Evan Jonokuchi (18-8), senior Johnny Erdman (20-9), junior Michael Keating (15-10) and sophomore Matt Marvin (17-6).
At 113, junior Rohan Das (14-12) wrestled tough but fell to the No. 3 ranked wrestler in New England.
Brunswick will wrestle at Greenwich High School in a dual meet Thursday at 6 p.m. and then will host Chase Collegiate and Hotchkiss in crucial league matches Saturday.
Greenwich Academy out-shot Kent but allowed two power play goals and fell 3-2 at Chelsea Piers.
"We outplayed them, out worked them but gave up two power play goals," GA coach Moe Tarrant said. "Freshman Olivia Lesueur played great `D' and Eva Rosencrans had a lot of shots but other than that it was a bad night."Sarah Kaplan and Janka Hlinka scored for the Gators (8-4-1), who outshot Kent 40-18.GA hosts Hotchkiss Saturday at 3 p.m.
