Foran wrestlers win final four matches, defeat Guilford

Foran won the last four matches to top Guilford 40-39 in an SCC wrestling match on Wednesday.

“After the 113-pound match we were down by 21 points,” Foran coach Dave Esposito said. “It was an amazing, exciting match. We had the most wins by pin or forfeit (fifth criteria) to get the victory.”

Each team had four pins. Foran’s Keith Pokornowski won by forfeit at 106 pounds

Mason Hallstrom began the come back by winning a 12-6 decision in his 120-pound bout. Antonio Madero pinned in one minute at 126 and 132-pounder Craig Mager earned a fall with seven seconds remaining in the second period.

Anthony Giordano took the mat with Foran down six points and recorded a pin in 1:30 to send the decision to the scorer’s table.
