Ed’s Matmen Top Graham

It was the dual meet of the year!

St. Edward traveled to St. Paris Graham as the top two teams in Ohio renewed their rivalry in one of high school wrestling’s great match-ups.

With Ed’s prevailing, 27-25, it was 103-pounder Anthony Stanley who stood tallest in the Ed’s line-up as hero of the night. He won the dual’s final match, thanks to the draw of weights, and registered a thrilling overtime victory to seal the deal for the Eagles.

As coach Heffernan hoisted Stanley to his shoulders after the deciding bout, it was a symbolic view of Ed’s reclaiming the top spot in the state.

Gohio casts has a great interview with Coach Greg Urbas posted at www.Gohiocasts.com

Check out Urbas’s answer to the question of what it is like to come into a “hostile” environment at Graham. “Hostile?” smiles Urbas. “I don’t think it was hostile. I think it was noisy!”

“This night was great for wrestling,” said Urbas, adding that he expected a “Humdinger.”

A humdinger it was! Also check out the great Kevin Schlosser photo of Heffernan hoisting Stanley and all the photos and results at www.Buckeyewrestling.com
