How It Happened

Lycoming 34, York 10

Jared Kuhns put York on the board first with a decisive 9-3 victory over Shane Casey at 125 Kuhns out-worked Casey with a 3-0 advantage in takedowns with a reversal and earned the riding time bonus to punctuate his third win of the weekend.

• Lycoming jumped in front of York with a bonus-point victory at 133 before Ethan Landis edged out a 6-4 victory over Verlensky Joachim at 141 with a takedown with 20 seconds left.

• The Warriors extended their lead even further with a fall at 149 and technical fall at 157 to take an 18-3 advantage after a four-bout run.

Jesse Rocco put a stop to the Lycoming run as he earned a 6-4 victory at 165 to keep York's comeback hopes alive. Rocco fell behind early in the third period, but then went to work in the final minute, capitalizing on an escape to earn a takedown which won the bout.

• Lycoming quickly erased York's comeback chances as the Warriors posted a first-period pin at 174, followed by a major decision at 184 to clinch the dual victory.

Camden Farrow put York in double-figures with a convincing 9-0 victory over Brody Keefe at 197 to earn his third win of the weekend. Farrow was all over Keefe from the beginning with an early takedown and two near fall points to take a 4-0 first period lead. Following a scoreless second period, Farrow reversed Keefe from bottom to start the third period and tacked on two more near fall points to secure the major decision.
