Adamek rushed for 124 yards on 27 carries, and Brennan completed 5 of 12 passes for 93 yards.

"I've been using that a lot. " Straup's pin of Philip helped seal a loud win for Methacton as the Warriors downed host Wissahickon, 65-5, in a nonconference bout Friday. "I've wrestled him before, and I did pretty good," Straup said. "It was pretty much the same thing today against him. " Straup was one of the Methacton regulars to post wins, and some of the team's younger guys also had a productive match, as the Warriors' freshmen combined for five wins.
