Region 8 AAAAA Title on the line!

With Summerville clenching the win in the first dual, Fort Dorchester will be looking to even the series. This important dual will not only decide the region 8 -AAAAA champion, the winner will also recieve the home advantage in the playoffs.  Summerville won the first meeting by a score of 39-30. The meeting came down to a crucial swing match at 152 lb. ,where Summerville's Jeramiah Pressley was able to win an overtime match to even the score out at 30 a piece. Changing the tide in their favor, Summerville swept the next two weight classes to secure the win. The next matchup between the two will include several ranked wrestlers. Fort Dorchester packs double the heat with 126 lb. Matteo Vargo, who is currently ranked No. 1. in his class, and Chandler Amaker at 145 lbs., also ranked No. 1 in his class.  Summerville isn't too worried though, as they will be bringing four ranked wrestlers to compete tomorrow night. Starting with the lightweights, Summerville brings No. 3 ranked, 106 lb., Ben Guilliam along with No. 2 ranked Reco Robinson at 113 lbs. Robinson is a returning state runner up and is hungry for another trip to the state finals in February. Summerville continues to up the stakes of the match with No. 2 ranked David Rundell weighing in at 160 lbs. In the previous meeting, Rundell moved up to 170 lbs. and won a by close 6-4 decision. Holding down the back will be Summerville's Parker Warder. Warder is the No. 1 ranked heavyweight and will be looking to repeat his previous performance where he earned a pinfall.
