With the North Penn tournament on Saturday and a Pioneer Athletic Conference matchup with Spring-Ford looming Tuesday, Warriors coach A.J. Maida said he rested a few regulars in Friday's win.
"We had a lot of young guys in the lineup, and our freshmen were 5-0 today," Maida said. "That's always nice to see. Our kids were physical, and I think maybe the schedule they wrestle prepares them to be pretty physical."
Among the freshmen, Cameron George (106), Dylan Henry (126), and Brendan Marion (138) recorded pins for Methacton (16-6), Bryce Reddington (113) won by technical fall, and Steve Denner (132) earned a major decision.
"I told them all before the match that I didn't think the team score is in doubt," Maida said. "But I don't want to see someone go out there and underperform."
The match came in a quad-meet that also included Avon Grove and Germantown Academy.
Trojans senior Pat Fennell recorded a technical fall at 160 to give Wissahickon (10-17) a 5-0 lead to start the match, but the Warriors roared back and swept the remaining weight classes.
"I thought some of our guys showed some heart in a couple of the matches even though they were getting beat up a little," Wissahickon coach Anthony Stagliano said. "But Methacton came to wrestle.
"I told my guys at the end of the match to learn from what the other team was doing to them. Methacton's a tough team, but we'll rebound."
