Wrestlers edged by five points
in Borderline Duals
“If we could have just changed the results of one match we would have won,” were the comments of Coach Luke Tucker following the Wednesday match between Harrison County and neighboring nemesis Bourbon County held in Paris.  
The Thorobreds finished second to the Colonels in a large competition earlier this season and fell to them by five points on Wednesday.  
It didn’t help that one of Bourbon County’s wrestlers trained in Harrison County and moved to Bourbon County.  
Michael Mattox, 106 lbs., Nathan Lopez, 126 lbs., Mark Taylor, 152 lbs., Colin Coy, 160 lbs., Clay Arthur, 195 lbs., and Kellon Williams, 220 lbs., each were winners in their weight classes.  
The scoring was six points for a pin or a forfeit, five points for a technical fall, four points for a major decision, and three points for decision in the dual meet. The Thorobreds actually had more pins and forfeits than the Colonels, but a forfeit in the 120 lb. class was six points that hurt the visiting wrestlers.  
The Thorobreds next meet, weather permitting, will be the Capital Classic in Frankfort this Saturday.  The North Hardin Invitational, which the Breds were to attend last Saturday, was snowed out.
