Lind Impresses as WPI Tangles with Southern Maine and Brockport in Home Super Quad

Chase Lind

WORCESTER --- Senior 157-pounder Chase Lind (Fairfield, CT) was victorious in both of his matches Saturday to highlight WPI wrestling's performance in its final home super quad of the season.  The Crimson and Gray competed twice, falling in matches to Southern Maine and Brockport that were ultimately decided by the final bout.   

The Engineers opening match with Southern Maine featured three distinct runs.  The visiting Huskies jumped out to an 11-0 advantage with bonus point victories at 125 and 133 pounds.   WPI rallied to win the next five bouts to gain a 23-11 edge, but USM used a major decision, a victory in TB-1 and a first period pin in the first three match-ups to claim the 24-22 triumph.  

The Crimson and Gray run started with Carter Lewis (Duxbury, MA) posting a 12-2 major decision at 141 pounds and was followed by a 24-9 tech fall from Ronan Ball (Maynard, MA) at 149.  Chase Lind (Fairfield, CT) won the middle match of the five-bout surge when he delivered a 9-0 major decision at 157.   Tyler Marsh (Upper Back Eddy, PA), New England's top-ranked 165-pounder notched a first period pin and then Brendan Marion (Norristown, PA) went 11 minutes in his epic match-up at 174 pounds,  posting a thrilling 6-5 victory in TB-2 by virtue of a six second advantage in riding time.  

WPI ended the day with match-up versus undefeated Brockport.  The Engineers trailed 12-11 halfway through as Chris Cook (Mount Kisco, NY) registered a first period pin at 133 pounds and Lind racked up the points early during a 16-1 tech fall (2:12) at 157.  The Golden Eagles took control of the contest with three straight wins, but Tyler Riggs (North Scituate, RI) broke up the spurt with a pin with seven seconds remaining in the first period at 197.  This gave the hosts a chance to win with a pin in the final bout, but the Eagles recorded a 6-0 shutout at heavyweight to clinch the victory. 

In other matches, Brockport knocked off No. 21 Muhlenberg 26-13 and Southern Maine 36-9, Roger Williams defeated Muhlenberg 24-15 and Southern Maine 27-13. 

WPI is now 6-13 while Brockport is 8-0, Southern Maine 8-6, Roger Williams 14-6 and Muhlenberg 16-4. 

WPI is back on the mat next Saturday, venturing to New London, CT to face Bridgewater State and NYU in a super quad at Coast Guard.  Other teams back in action on Saturday include Southern Maine (at Western New England with Trinity and Alvernia), Roger Williams (hosting Rhode Island College and New England College) and Muhlenberg (at McDaniel with Johns Hopkins and Merchant Marine and at the Messiah Open).  Brockport is the only team with a midweek meet, entertaining RIT at 7pm.
