Solanco recorded three falls and a decision, but it wasn’t enough as Penn Manor, now in a three-way first place Section I tie with Cocalico and Conestoga Valley, pasted the Mules. The Comets won 10 bouts and left Solanco with a 49-21 win on Wednesday night, January 18.
Mule victories were posted by Grayson Charles, 138, with a fall at 3:43; A.J. Wilson at 152 with a fall at 2:41; Josh Weder at 195 with a fall at 24 seconds; and Kaleb Tucker at 220 with a 6-1 decision.
The key match was at 170 where Jonah Barley was bumped up to face Solanco’s Ben Root, who on the weekend prior placed fifth in the prestigious Escape the Rock tournament. This time Barley won the battle with a 9-3 decision.
