GAFFNEY, S.C. – The Anderson wrestling team collected wins in three bouts, but ultimately dropped a 30-10 decision to Limestone on the road Thursday night at the Timken Center.
Limestone improved to 3-6, while Anderson fell to 3-12 on the season.
The Saints gained an early edge by recording two straight pins to open the match, as LC’s
Brandon Feix pinned Andrew Rankin at the 2:40 mark of the 125-pound bout and Limestone’s Mike Magaha pinned Joseph Perry (2:54) at 133 pounds.
Matt Hall kept the momentum on Limestone’s side with a hard-fought 11-7 decision past AU’s Ian Harper at 1451 pounds and the Saints’ Theran Goodale kept the pressure on the Trojans by pinning Caleb Swinson at 2:26.
Anderson’s Nick Giulietti got AU on the scoreboard with a solid 6-2 decision past Limestone’s Jeremy McPhearson in the 157-pound class and Brian Onofrio earned a 12-3 (major) decision over the Saints’ Chris Didyoung at 165 pounds to pull the Trojans closer. Trevor Sanford made it three straight for Anderson with a narrow 7-5 decision at 174 pounds past LC’s Bryce Sopko.
