Bedford wrestlers top Goffstown
Beford won seven matches by pin, including Ben Gilman (138), Josh Belz (145), Chris Connery (152), Justin Mello (160), Ben Miller (182), Matt Houston (220) and Robert Lamy (285).
Ben Dow of Bedford was unopposed in the 120-pound class.
Goffstown had no pins but won three decisions: Connor Bourque, Mitchell Cusson and Ian Routhier. Kevin Donahue was unopposed in the 106-pound class.
Bedford’s wrestlers are now 5-0 and off to a much better start than last season, according to head coach Rob Benincasa.
The edge in fitness was apparent in the number of pins by the Bulldogs.
“When we go up against their best competition, our guys are pushing the pace. We’re not quitting. We don’t let up” said Benincasa.
“Half our team is a young team” said Detjin. “When you wrestle a team with experienced wrestlers, that’s going to happen. Sometimes you get mismatches.”
“That’s the difference. I think it shows a lot of heart and determination,” said Benincasa. “We work on that. We train for it.”
