HS Wrestlers Dominate Ephrata On Senior Night

The Black Knights tuned up for a very busy week of wrestling next week, by dominating the Ephrata Mountaineers by a score of 75 to 3, on Senior Night. Ephrata’s line-up was a bit depleted with injuries, as they handed Hempfield 5 forfeits sprinkled throughout the line-up. What was impressive was the fact that of the the 9 matches that were actually contested, Hempfield won 8 of those 9 matches, 7 of those wins came via Falls! The opening match of the day was one of the matches thought to be closely contested. Turned out not to be the case, at 220 pounds,  as Tommy Bennett pinned Cameron Eisenhower in the first period to earn his 20th win of the season. Joey Goodhart remained undefeated on the season, as he won his 20th match as well, also with a first period pin at Hwt. Brandon Hartman, Rueben Sanchez, and Aidyn Miller all worked their opponents to their back to secure pins as well. Luke Granbois earned a hard fought 6 to 5 victory at 132. Alex Gainer, 160, and Brady Mathias, 170, continued the pinfest, as they  both earned falls as well. All in all a very impressive performance by this team! Next match is Monday Night , January 13th, as League Leader, Solanco rolls into town for a huge match-up with Hempfield at home, beginning at 7 pm!
