Redding had a third period fall over Marvin Lobo (Copiague) and Busiello used a tight bar-arm to flattened Joe Kasten (Connetquot) in the first period. Busiello had three first period falls in his three bouts and will take his mat skills to Arizona State next season. State finalist and Penn-bound Joey Slackman of Commack has three falls thus far in the tournament -15 seconds, 1:00 and a 1:31 pin, he secured the fall with a tight half over Longwood's Elijah Stowe in the 285-pound semifinal match. Redding (46-2), Busiello (45-0, 276-8 career) and Slackman (42-0) all won in the finals. Sayville's top-seeded Joe Lopresti (37-1) scored with a third period snap-spin takedown to edge Central Islip's Malachi Lord-Kelly (33-2), 3-2, at 182. Liam McIntrye (40-0) of Westhampton Beach used a barrage of takedowns and bar-arm tilts en route to a convincing 17-1 tech fall over  Jaylyn Barber (Bay Shore) at 195.
