Bayport Blue-Point were paced by all-state grapplers; freshman Max Gallagher (5-0) at 113 and Joe Sparacio (4-1). Gallagher and Sparacio are reigning Division II county champions and will challenge for state crowns at the 2020 state meet in Albany. Gallagher scored with a single leg takedown and added a slick front headlock throw by takedown in the third period en route to an 11-1 major decision against county finalist, sophomore Tristen Petretti. Sparacio, a sophomore, opened the scoring with a headlock and later was reversed by tough Connor Pearce, a junior, who used a headlock of his own in an entertaining bout that knotted the score at 5-5, at the end of the first period. Sparacio scored with a key third period reversal and added a tilt to emerge with an impressive 9-5 verdict in his 120-pound bout. The Phantoms also had a standout showing from Viktor Sandor who clamped his opponent at the :55 second mark in his 138-pound match.
Both head coaches SWR's Joe Condon and BBP's Dave Cruz (his second year at the helm) showcased their respective talented teams with solid competition and sportmanship throughout the dual meet.
