Sherburne-Earlville 30, Norwich 29
SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville won the final three matches picking up 12 team points, and edged Norwich in a non-league dual meet Thursday night.
The telltale victory came at 112 pounds when S-E’s Spencer Franklin outlasted Norwich’s Tanner Cummings, 14-12 in overtime. Each wrestler exchanged reversals and takedowns throughout the bout. Cummings went for the early takedown in overtime, but had the tables turned and ended up on the bottom as Franklin scrambled for the win. Last weekend, Franklin beat Cummings 13-10 in the Ilion Tournament.
“That was the key match,” said S-E head coach Bim Palmer of the 112-pound encounter. “Spencer just seems to find a way to come out on top in those scrambles. That’s his strength.”
