HERSHEY - This was the match most pointed to months ago as the one that would decide the state championship.
And all of those folks were right.
In a highly entertaining PIAA Class 3A 152-pound title match Saturday night at the Giant Center, Council Rock North senior Cam Robinson was edged by DuBois' Ed Scott 11-8, giving Robinson his second-straight silver medal.
"Obviously, I would have liked to have won," Robinson said. "But I'll learn from this and work harder.
"I always have fun with wrestling and that's never changed. I need to hit the weight room and get stronger. (Scott) was really strong. Everybody here is good and I knew he would be tough."
Scott, a PIAA state champ at 138 a year ago, was ranked first in the state and Robinson No. 2 - and they put on a good show as Robinson scored first only to see Scott lead 4-3 after two minutes.
Robinson trailed by three entering the third period before a quick reversal brought him to within a point. However, Scott scored three of the next four points to earn the win.
Robinson (43-3), a four-time state qualifier and Iowa State commit, finished his career with three PIAA state medals, including two runner-up finishes, and a 152-26 career record.
The North Carolina State bound Scott (40-0 and 79-0 the last two seasons) was also a four-time state qualifier and three-time PIAA state medalist.
"I wanted that title," Robinson said. "That would have been great. I really wanted it for all of the people that have helped me over the years. I've been very lucky."
