Boys' Latin took the last eight bouts to break a 15-15 tie and score a 60-15 victory over visiting Glenelg Country School Thursday night.
Juniors Hunter Cotsoradis (120 pounds, 11-3) and Evan Dohler (170, 6-0) and sophomores Anthony Wyler (145, 13-5) and Rocco Bruno (195, 4-0) won by pin for the Lakers.
They also received 30 more points by forfeit.
“We knew we would probably have a number of forfeits in certain spots, but Glenelg had a couple of nice kids,” Boys' Latin coach Drew Haugh said. “We had never wrestled Glenelg before and they wanted to wrestle us. We said, 'Sure.' This is a good prep for our quad match on Saturday.”
Freshman Kahlan Lermer (113) finished the winner's scoring, overcoming a 13-9 deficit to edge Adam Bothwell, 14-13, in the final seconds on back points.
Lermer improved to 9-4.
“That was a pretty wild match,” Haugh said. “Kahlan is very small. He could easily wrestle 106 for us.”
Boys' Latin jumped out to a 9-0 lead thanks to Cotsoradis' pin of Sam Smith in 4:47 and Nate Malinowski's 6-0 decision over Matt Campbell at 126.
Glenelg went ahead briefly by taking the next two bouts. Christian Vinyard gained a forfeit at 132 and Reid Chaconas won by pin.
The rest of the match belonged to the Lakers, who improved their dual-meet record to 8-4.
Torrin Stokes (160, 10-1), Chris Rubin (170), Demitri Lezcano (195, 9-2), Myles Vilceus (285, 7-3) and Nick Malinowski (106, 15-3) won by forfeit.
