LONGWOOD — Wednesday night’s dual between former district rivals Lyman and Lake Mary might not have been the most highly-regarded dual on the docket in the Orlando area.
But it was the closest dual of the night, and had plenty of competitive moments besides, as the host Greyhounds held on for a 31-30 victory at home over their region rival, which was placed into District 2 this year.
Lyman (2-3 in duals for the season) picked up three pins on the night, with Cameron Popeck (132), Cameron Warner (138) and Jacob Zifferblatt (170) all winning by fall. Vincent Savelli added a 12-2 major at 160, with Haiden Williams-Marchetti securing a one-point win, 8-7, at 182. The Greyhounds also had a win by forfeit at 195.
For the Rams (1-4), Nick Ghezzi (145) and Dominic Kontogiannis (220) both secured pins, with Devean White (5-1 at 126) and Aden Eliason (5-2 at 152) winning by decisions. Lake Mary also picked up back-to-back forfeits at 113 and 120; combined with the decision at 126, that was a 15-point bounce for the Rams.
Lyman will travel to Palm Coast for Flagler Palm Coast’s Flagler Rotary, a two-day IBT< starting on Friday, while Lake Mary is off until February 1, when the Rams face Apopka.
Hagerty 56, Oviedo 15: At Hagerty for the Huskies’ Senior Night, the hosts never trailed and held a double-digit lead for the final nine weights of the dual.
Hagerty (28-9) picked up pins from Hunter Tate (195), Thad Elam (220), Lochlann Higgins (113), Carson Greenier (120), Jada Llamido (145), Kamdon Harrison (170) and Ethan Gomez (182). Blake Watts (160) added a 20-5 tech fall, racking up decision wins from Landon Revis (4-0 at 285), Megan Kaplan (15-12 at 126) and David Mejia (138).
Jordan Jones had the lone fall of the night for the Lions (12-15), with Johnathan Dishman pitching a 7-0 shutout at 132. Oviedo also won by forfeit at 106.
Hagerty will be at Flagler Rotary this weekend, while Oviedo will be at Timber Creek’s Wolfpack Invitational on Saturday.
Winter Park 42, Evans 22: At Winter Park, the hosts’ fuller lineup proved key, but the Wildcats won a majority of contested matches as well in the matchup of Metro Conference rivals.
Atzin Bazan (152), Tristen Carbonell (170) and Liam Glassmeyer (220) all won by fall for Winter Park (unknown season record), while Noel Marrero (6-1 at 138) and Teddy Barry (5-0 at 160) each took decisions for the Wildcats. Winter Park also won by forfeit at 106, 120 and 195.
