HOLLY SPRINGS -- Cary stayed off its back more than Holly Springs did Wednesday, and while the difference between winning and losing a wrestling match isn’t that simple, it is often that cruical.
In the final bout of the day, it was Cary 113-pounder Lucas Fryar who avoided a pin from an unrelenting Jacob Salzer. Cary held on for a 33-31 victory against Holly Springs, even as Salzer claimed a 14-6 win.
If Salzer had been able to pin Fryar, the Golden Hawks would have won the match by tying the overall score 33-33 while having the upper hand in the first tiebreaking criteria, which is most bouts won.
“Holly Springs gave us everything we wanted and more tonight,” said Cary coach Taylor Cummings.
Holly Springs had an 8-6 advantage in the match’s 14 bouts, but Cary overcame that with pins from Will Clark (126 pounds), Alex Ynoquio (132), Mark Mulligan (152) and Christian Abad (heavyweight).
