The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch wrestling team saw their record slip to 2-4 on the season with a 53-18 loss to the Brookville Raiders last night at the SMAHS Dutch Oven.
While the Dutch took a 15-6 lead through four matches, the only points St. Marys scored after that came on a 3-2 decision by Joe McLaughlin at 182 pounds over Tyler Dombroski.
â€śBrookville is as very good wrestling team. Even with some guys banged up, they wrestled well,â€ť said St. Marys coach Dominic Surra.
â€śWe improved tonight. We thought 120 and 145 would be toss-up matches. Evan Smith got a very nice win over Constable, who was 8-0 at 120 pounds, and Sam Miller wrestled tough in a loss at 145 pounds. One hundred eighty-two pounds was a rematch of the Big Dog finals, with Joey (McLaughlin) coming out on top tonight,â€ť said Surra.
â€śOverall as a team we made them earn their points. We battled hard. We have to keep working and improving every day,â€ť he said. â€śNext Tuesday we host Clearfield and that match has big District 9 implications.â€ť
