|VIDEO: Roxbury tops Hanover Park in tough wrestling matchup|
In a dual meet featuring some of Morris County's top wrestlers, little came easy for either Roxbury or Hanover Park. But the Gaels' strength in the middle and upper weights proved decisive.
Roxbury won the first six bouts of the night and went on to record a 32-18 triumph over the Hornets in this NJAC divisional crossover wrestling match.
The Gaels had the only two pins of the night. One came in an overtime bout at 152 pounds, where Stephen Satmaria locked a standing cradle on Ryan Paff to pick up a huge six points for Roxbury as the Gaels built a 25-0 lead.
Hanover Park won six of the final eight bouts, but all came by regular decision. Top Hornet wrestlers like defending state champion Anthony Cefolo and Gennaro Cuccolo had to battle to the final second to secure victories.
Roxbury improved to 8-0 on the season with the win, while Hanover Park fell to 3-4.
