Danbury wrestlers dominate TrumbullThe Eagles, ranked No. 4 in the state coaches’ poll, may prove to be tough in the long run, but Wednesday evening at Danbury High School soundly belonged to the No. 1 ranked Hatters, who won 12 out of 14 matches to claim a 55-7 FCIAC victory. In the first match of the night, Danbury’s Matt Adam set the tone in the 182 class, scoring a thunderous takedown that seemed to shake the gymnasium and pinning his opponent just seconds later and only 1:06 into the match. Danbury’s Andrew Marquis continued the fast start for the Hatters in the second match, dominating from the get-go and scoring a 16-0 technical fall. Tied 1-1 going into the third period, Washington scored an early takedown to go up 3-1. Gaboardi notched an escape late in the match, but Washignton held on for the win. While he acknowledged that Danbury was undoubtedly the better team on the night, Trumbull coach Niko Filippakis believes his squad wasn’t as far behind the Hatters as the score would suggest. Trumbull’s only other win came in the final match of the evening, as Joey Ryan scored an 11-2 victory. An escape in the second overtime period allowed LeBlanc to claim the 3-2 victory. Danbury’s Joey Hulse trailed 2-1 going into the third period at 126, but he scored three points to take a 4-2 advantage and nailed down the pin with just 27 seconds remaining. “I knew he wasn’t going to hold me down, so I wasn’t too worried after he got the first takedown,” Hulse said. notching pins for the Hatters were Kyle Fields at 120, Peterson Souza at 132 and Jarek Laplant at 152 for a meet total of five.
