WRESTLING: Methacton falls to Council Rock South

For Montgomery Media / BARRY TAGLIEBER Methacton's Joe Staley controls Council Rock South's Dan Harkins on the way to a 13-1 win during their bout at 132 pounds Thursday night in the District 1 Class AAA Duals at Methacton.
The Methacton wrestlers had a little something to prove on Thursday night in the District 1 Class AAA Team Duals … that they were a lot better and tougher than they had shown the night before when they had fallen behind by a big early score and pretty much rolled over in a one-sided league defeat.

And the 10th-seeded hosts did indeed rebound strongly as they opened with a 40-24 win over West Chester East and then battled all the way to the last bout in a 36-25 loss to seventh-seeded Council Rock South.

Paul Russo, Devin Bradley, Jack Ryan, Joe Staley and Tracey Green were all double winners on the mat for the Warriors (12-6) and Mike Baccaro won by a forfeit and a pin. The setback eliminated Methacton from the tournament while South advances to next Friday’s quarterfinal round at Upper Dublin.
