Shot at title

A Granville victory in Clums Corners Dec. 15 sets up Granville for a possible repeat as Wasaren champs following a 48-35 win over Tamarac. Granville improved to 3-0.

Wins at 113 and 120 pounds by Jesse Owens and Steven Cohan added to the Granville advantage setting the team up for a January 5 showdown with the Hoosick Falls Panthers for the title. Paul Hanna wrestled up and managed an 8-7 win over Andy Milne while Nathaniel Palmer (132), Hayden miller (145), Christian Carr (152), Brad Perry (170), Mack Rozell (220) and Josh McKittrick (285) pinned for the Horde. Head coach Steve Palmer said match ups went well for the team and set up a scenario he guessed might about when looking at the schedule at the beginning of the season – an all-or- nothing visit to Hoosick Falls. That match will determine the league title unless Tamarac is able to defeat Hoosick Falls this week.
