Trojan Wrestlers Win One, Fall Twice at Super Region I DualsJanuary 26, 2013
NEWBERRY, S.C. – Freshman 133-pounder Zak Hale notched three wins on Saturday to highlight the Trojan effort on the second day of the 2013 Super Region I Duals presented by Sonic Drive-In of Newberry at MacLean Gym on the campus of Newberry College.
Anderson (4-14) fell, 33-15, to East Stroudsburg in the Trojans’ first match of the day and dropped a 40-6 decision to Kutztown, but wrapped up the duals with a come-from-behind, 22-21, win past Seton Hill.
Hale and fellow freshman Greg Williams gave Anderson a quick 12-0 lead over East Stroudsburg, with Williams pinning the Warriors’ Nick Kaiser at the 5:42 mark of their 125-pound bout, while Hale pinned East Stroudburg’s Devin Holmes with 28 seconds remaining in the second period of their 133-pound matchup.
The Warriors countered with three consecutive wins to take the lead, but Jamal Lackey’s first win of the day and third of the event – a 14-7 decision over the Warriors’ Colin Martucci – at 165 pounds evened the match. But East Stroudburg countered by closing the match with a pair of pins and two decisions to get past the Trojans.
Hale earned Anderson’s lone win against Kutztown by pinning the Golden Bears’ Brandon Davis late in the first period of their 133-pound bout.
With the Trojans trailing Seton Hill, Hale evened the score at 3-3 with a 6-2 decision past the Griffons’ Levi Catalfu. AU trailed again, 15-3, before the Trojans reeled off three consecutive decisions to climb back within 15-12. Freshman Kevin Johnson got past Seton Hill’s Adam Moranduzzo at 157 pounds, then Lackey notched his fourth win of the two-day event with a hard-earned 4-2 decision over the Griffons’ Brett Smith at 165 pounds. AU freshman Jacob Allen followed by posting a 10-7 win past SHU’s Randall Wagner at 174 pounds.
