Coupled with pinfall wins by Kevin Dunshee (113) and Spencer Franklin (120), S-E led 24-6
Tristan Rifanburg (126) began a string of wins for Norwich pinning Dustin Mosley. Frankie Garcia (138), Matt Thompson (152), and Tanner Cummings (160) also had pins with the only interruption a technical fall victory by the Marauders’ Jack Buell at 145 pounds.
