Foran High’s 41-40 victory over host Waterford highlighted coach Dave Esposito’s Lions sweep of the wrestling competition on Saturday.

Foran, the state’s ninth-ranked team, added wins over St. Bernard’s, Branford, Ellis Tech and Bacon Academy to improve to 19-3.

Waterford took a 28-0 lead through the 132-pound weight class, before Ethan Edmondson began a streak of five straight Lion victories with a first-period fall (1:46) at 138. Kevin Pokornowski had a pin in 3:15 at 145 pounds and Umer Khan won a 14-2 major decision to knot the score at 28 with four matches remaining.

The rivals traded wins by fall, with Foran’s 195-pounder Nolan Bannon and 220-pounder Phillip Boyles pinning in 45 and 31 seconds, respectively.

The Lions were awarded the one-point win on criteria by having the most points scored first.
