​Mat Notes:

   In an action-packed dual meet between cross-town rivals, that are a little less than 2 miles apart, Bayport-Blue Point prevailed with a 41-40 victory over League Six representative Sayville. The Phantoms won 8 out the 15 bouts contested and were paced by defending Division II champion Joe Sparacio who posted a fall at 106, along with other pin winners: Danny Horton (152) and Kenny Hannaford at 160. BBP's Shane Santoro was embroiled in a back-and-forth bout and converted a duck under, along with an ankle pick takedown for a pivotal 13-5 major decision at 132 pounds.


   Sayville battled back with key victories turned in by Jacob Wolmart and James Mejia. Wolmart used a barrage of double-leg takedowns en route to a 16-5 major decision at 138 and Mejia clamped his opponent with a tight half-nelson at 145, and brought the team score to 20-16. The Golden Flashes all-county junior Joe Lopresti (24-1) registered a first period fall with a tight bar-arm at 182 and following a series of forfeits, Sayville took a 40-38 lead heading into the dual meet's final bout in the 99-pound class.


   At 99 pounds, BBP's returning Division II finalist Max Gallagher scored first with a single leg takedown. Sayville's highly-touted Mack Murtha scored with a beautiful pancake takedown and took a 7-4 lead. After exchanging escapes, Gallagher scored with a snap-spin takedown  along with a tilt and emerged with an exciting 10-8 victory, much to the delight of the home town fans. This dual meet was simply great for wrestling - good competition and outstanding sportmanship was exhibited by both mat squads.
