Fairmont Senior mauls Grafton, South Harrison

FAIRMONT — Polar Bear beat-down.

Fairmont Senior wrestling rolled past Grafton and South Harrison on Thursday evening.

At times, both the Bearcats and the Hawks seemed discombobulated.

The Polar Bears were not only winning, but they were winning by way of pins.

“We work on finishing things off with a pin — you usually give up things that you shouldn’t to get the pin,” Fairmont Senior’s head coach Mark Delligatti said. “When you get a fall, you usually get more points, and that’s what we try to get from our wrestlers.”

Although everything seemed as though it was peaches and cream for the Polar Bears, they had to face adversity early.

The adversity began when usual 106-pounder Colin Masters had to jump to the 113-pound division. The junior had to face Grafton’s best wrestler, Cody Goff, which is a tough task in itself, especially when Masters was giving nearly 10 pounds.

“Grafton’s best guy is the Goff kid,” Delligatti said.
