"He weighs like 95 pounds," Stewart said of Marion who improved to 10-11. "He's giving up 10-12 pounds every match. He went out there against a good, experienced wrestler and won."
Neshaminy took the lead for good after winning the 113 pound bout. Freshman Zac Martin got Ryan Murphy in a cradle and rolled him onto his back for a pin in 1 minute, 42 seconds. Murphy was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, cost his team a point, and gave Neshaminy a 10-2 lead.
That fall touched off a string of big performances. Freshman Liam Moss (1:42, 120 pounds) and junior Colton Jordan (3:18, 126 pounds) earned pins while senior Austin Saba picked up a technical fall, 16-0, in 5:12 for a 26-2 Neshaminy lead.
The home team grabbed four more pins from junior Gus Natelli (0:40, 138 pounds), junior Jackson Erb (1:17, 145 pounds), junior Rory Rienzi (2:58, 152 pounds) and sophomore Gunner Spain (4:33, 160 pounds) to lift Neshaminy to a 50-2 advantage.
Senior Brock Leinbach, who celebrated Senior Night along with Saba, ran into a tough customer in Max Schummer at 170 pounds. He took a 4-1 lead in the first period on a pair of takedowns, a 6-1 lead in the second period on a near fall, and used an escape and a takedown in the third period to earn his 15th win of the season.
"I couldn't get much going on top," Leinbach said. "I've beaten him before. I was able to dominate him mostly, but I just couldn't get him to turn over on top. I should have done more on my feet."
Davis Lee ended Neshaminy's win streak when he pinned sophomore Zack Magdelinskas in 2:25 at 195 pounds for his 20th win, but freshman Kenny Monaco came back from a 4-1 deficit at 220 pounds to pin Pat Chappell in 3:21 to close out the scoring.
Neshaminy is young, but very talented with four freshmen and two sophomores earning impressive victories with four pins among them.
"I'm very happy," Stewart said. "There's a lot of development still with a young team. But tonight was a good example of what is possible."
