Horde snags eighth at Galway

The Golden Horde wrestling team traveled to the Greg Rockwood Memorial Tournament in Galway on Jan. 4 and in spite of strong competition from teams like Schalmont, Salem and Adirondack, coupled with limited numbers due to injury and illness, the team was able to battle for an eighth place finish.

Leading the way for Granville were seniors Nathaniel Palmer (138) and Brad Perry (170,) who both won individual championships. Palmer scored a 4-0 victory over Salem’s Luke Fronhofer in the finals while Perry outdueled Kevin Paskavich of Schalmont 5-1. Devin Cohan added a second place finish at 106.

The tournament came a week after the Hubie Wagner Invitational in Middlebury, Vt., Dec. 26 and 27, during which Horde wrestlers saw a number of victories.

At 138, Palmer had five wins with four pins and one decision, and Perry scored five pins. Benjamin Fox won by pin in three of seven bouts, and Dwayne Nadeau had three pins as well.

Damian Duffy claimed a major 15-1 decision and a decision, and Daegan Jones and Anthony Arbuckle had two pins apiece. Cohan claimed a win by decision and one by pin, and Dylan Martindale and William Duffy each pinned for the Horde.

The team will host Schuylerville tonight in a match at 6 p.m. that will decide the league championship.
