The John Glenn wrestlers hosted the visiting Washington Panthers on Thursday night. The energy was high in the Arie as the night started off with 4 jv bouts. With Glenn winning 3 of the 4. Picking up wins were Noah Finch, Zak Kipp, and Jalen Kaser all by Fall.
The Varsity match started off with a quick 3 pins by the Panthers at 170, 182, and 195. But then things got rolling for the Falcons with wins by Fall at 220 by John Ort and at 285 by Brody Miskimon. Jumping back to the lower weights picking up wins by forfeit was Nathan May and Bryce Smith putting the Falcons in the lead. Adam Martin dropped a back and forth match at 126 lbs by Fall in the 3rd period. The same result at 138 lbs for Owen Filley put the Falcons back down 30-24. Brandon Becker got us back on track at 145 lbs with a first period fall tying the match back up at 30 points a piece. With 2 weights remaining. And the Falcons just ran out of steam to hold off the Panthers dropping the last 2 duals by Fall at 152 and 160 lbs.
The Falcons are in action next this Saturday at the Jimtown Super Dual, wrestling starts at 9am
