ERIE — Corry’s wrestlers are finishing strong, taking down two wins on Saturday at Central Tech.
The Beavers breezed past undermanned East 48-9 in the first match of a double dual, then outlasted Central 36-34 to move to 6-3 in the region.
East, whose head coach died suddenly two weeks ago, had just four wrestlers and won two matches.
Corry’s Alex Suydan got a pin in 1:44 at 170 pounds and Zac Morris decked his foe in 31 seconds at 192.
Josh Silka got pinned by James Carr in 4:34 at 132. In the heavyweight bout, Garret Schweitzer got taken down with :11 left to bow 3-1 to Pat Williams.
“I thought Garret wrestled well in his match and Zac looked impressive pinning his opponent in the first period,” said coach Greg Barnett.
As expected, the Central match was a tight one.
