Ryan Frost will always remember his first varsity victory -- and so will the rest of his Dulaney teammates.
Frost, a sophomore heavyweight, pinned Larry Jaski at 4:36 to give host Dulaney a 35-30 victory over dwich No. 13 Eastern Technical in a Baltimore County 3A-4A Division II match yesterday -- the first time in school history the Lions had defeated the Mavericks.
Dulaney (6-1, 3-0) led by 14 at one point, but Eastern Technical (5-1, 3-1) won three straight matches to take a 30-29 lead heading into the last match.
Frost and Jaski were tied at two after one period and at four after two. Jaski put Frost on his back early in the third period, and the Dulaney wrestler appeared in trouble.
But Frost quickly reversed Jaski and, while barely keeping him in-bounds, got the pin moments later.
"I felt him off-balance," said Frost. "I put my hand on his stomach and rolled him over. I [then] got him in a headlock."
Dulaney coach Pete Chakmakas said the victory should greatly help his team, which lost 12 of 14 matches last season.
"I think what it tells the kids is we're a legitimate wrestling team," said Chakmakas.
For much of the match, Dulaney did not appear as if it would need any late heroics. A Bernie Roloson (130) pin gave Eastern Technical a 15-9 lead, but the Lions then took the next four matches.
Alex Leanos (135) won by forfeit to tie it up. Pat Kopalchick (140) pinned James Borchardt at 5:50 before Brian D'Anna (145) scored a 15-6 decision over Ryan Dolly.
Scott Kopalchick (152) stretched the Dulaney lead to 29-15 with an 11-1 decision over Jason Lord. The Lions looked in even better shape when, at 160, Damon Holmes took a 9-2 lead over defending county champion Rex Marshall.
But Marshall rallied as Holmes tired. Marshall took down his opponent with 43 seconds left for a 10-9 win.
Eastern Technical's Jayson Sergotick (171) then pinned Joel Leksen, and Dulaney forfeited to James Blankenship at 189 to give the Mavericks a one-point lead and leave it all up to the heavyweights.
