Marsh, Lind, Wensley and Day All Victorious Twice in Wrestling Home Super Quad

Chase Lind

WORCESTER -- The foursome of Tyler Marsh (Upper Black Eddy, PA), Chase Lind (Fairfield, CT), Dan Wensley (Wakefield, MA) and Nick Day (Northampton, MA) combined to win eight bouts on the day as WPI split two matches Saturday afternoon in a home super quad in the Sports & Recreation Center.  The Crimson and Gray knocked over New England Wrestling Association foe Southern Maine 25-20 in their opener before dropping a 27-14 decision to Brockport (NY) in the nightcap. 

In other action, No. 2 Johnson & Wales went 2-0 on the day, defeating NYU (32-12) and Brockport (43-7) while Southern Maine bested Brockport (21-9) and NYU dealt Southern Maine a 35-9 setback.   

The Engineers found themselves down 11-0 to the Huskies after the a tech fall at 141 pounds and a forfeit at 149 before rattling off six straight wins to take home the victory.  Tyler Marsh (Upper Black Eddy, PA) began the run with a 15-0 tech fall (5:55) at 157 before Brendan Marion (Norristown, PA) grinded out an 8-7 triumph at 165. 

The key point in the match came in the next bout when Chase Lind (Fairfield, CT), who was trailing after two periods at 174 pounds, made a quick strike and pinned his opponent at 5:09 to put the hosts up 14-11.  Dan Wensley (Wakefield, MA) and Michael Curtis (Wells, ME) then posted consecutive 14-0 major decisions at 184 and 197 pounds respectively.   Day then took the mat with a chance to seal the victory for the Engineers with three bouts to do and delivered with a 4-1 victory at heavyweight.  

WPI found itself down in a similar fashion against Brockport, however this time it was a pin and forfeit and the deficit was 12-0.   Marsh was dominant again, collecting a 13-0 major decision at 157 pounds.  

After the ‎Golden Eagles countered with a major decision at 165, Lind used an escape in the final second of his bout to post a major decision (13-5) of his own at 174.  Wensley, who is ranked eighth nationally at 184, followed with a 8-3 decision and Day blanked his opponents two bouts later at heavyweight to slice the Brockport advantage to 18-14 but the visitors collected wins in the final two match-ups to close out the 27-14 road victory. 

WPI hits the road next Saturday for its final multi-team event of the regular season.  The Engineers take on NYU and Bridgewater State in a super quad at Coast Guard.
