Been and Forrest were tied at the time of the pin.

“It’s definitely a big win for us,” third-year Unatego coach Mike Hamilton said. “It’s the first time we’ve beaten B-G/A since I’ve been here. It was a really hard-fought match between both teams. It was really exciting.”

Austin Ryan’s technical fall victory over Brett Hubbard at 126 pounds gave the Spartans a 38-27 lead. B-G/A received decision victories from Kevin Hubbard and Jesse Coleman at 132 and 138, respectively, to close the match, but it wasn’t enough.

Thayer secured a takedown with two seconds left to beat Jamie Griswold, 7-5, at 152.

Marszal bumped up two weight classes to beat Mark Viviano, 9-6, at 195. Marszal took the lead with a five-point move with about 20 seconds left.
