ROYERSFORD - Ryan Kemmerer would've preferred a different ending ... team-ending that is.
The Spring-Ford 140-pounder, a junior, pinned Hatboro-Horsham's Nick Lynn in 3:00 Wednesday night to reach the 100-win mark faster than anyone in District 1 history. However, it wasm't quite good enough to prevent the Rams from falling to the visiting Hatters, 39-24, in a non-league dual.
Spring-Ford trailed 30-26 before Hatboro-Horsham swept the final two bouts to put it out of reach. The Rams were also hit with two team points at the end to account for the final 15-point spread.
Kemmerer, a two-time state medalist, opened the season with 95 career wins. He won last week's opener against Neshamimy, then added three more en route to a gold medal in last Saturday's Southeast Classic.
The Rams (1-1) got a pin from Matt Patterson (160) and Tim Miller (119), a decision from Brandon Duffy (130), and a technical fall from Gareth Cooper (135) prior to Kemmerer's milestone victory.
SF-Delco 41, Owen J. Roberts 28: Springfield-Delco broke away from host Owen J. Roberts with four wins in the final five bouts to post a non-league victory.
The Wildcats used Connor McCormick's decision at 145 and Nick Fuschino's pin at 152 to get within 23-22 before the Cougars swept four in row from 160
