Monsignor Farrell wrestlers win 'unusual' CHSAA State Duals meet
January 29, 2017


In many ways, the CHSAA State Duals wrestling meet at Monsignor Farrell on Sunday went according to form, in that the two-day tournament boiled down to a final match between Long Island power St. Anthony's and the host Lions.

But the expected close showdown was anything but, as Farrell jumped out to a 25-8 lead through eight bouts. Then, midway through the 113-pound matchup that the Lions' Jimmy Ryan was leading, St. Anthony's head coach Tony Walters forfeited the match, guaranteeing what certainly appeared to be a destined Farrell victory.
