WRESTLING: Owen J. Roberts rolls over Methacton

If any of the Owen J. Roberts wrestlers were looking ahead to the opening round of the District 1 Class AAA Team Duals, it was certainly hard to tell from their performances in Wednesday night’s 60-9 Pioneer Athletic Conference win at Methacton.

Whether it was in bouts they were supposed to win, or several that might have been considered toss-ups against strong opponents, or even a couple where competitors with less than a handful of matches under their belts this year were sent out to the mat, the Wildcats seemed to be concentrating only on winning their current bout. That focus resulted in five pins, a technical fall and a major against three close setbacks by decisions.

“You worry about the fact the kids might be worrying about (tonight),” said OJR head coach Steve DeRafelo. “You can’t do that against a team like Methacton, but they did a good job.”
