The Horseheads Blue Raider wrestling program started the season on fire in their home opener.
Horseheads cruised to 64-18 victory over visiting Maine-Endwell Wednesday night. The Blue Raider earned five wins via pin and never looked back. Horseheads earned five victories by forfeit as well.
In perhaps the best match of the night, Micah Miller pulled off a close win, 5-4, over defending Section IV Champion Chris Eames at 170 pounds. In a battle, Miller converted on a two-point takedown countering an offensive attack by Eames, securing the victory with under a minute left in the match.
Next up for the Blue Raiders, the annual Mark Stephens Classic this Friday and Saturday at Horseheads Middle School. For a complete list of results, view here: http://s200.trackwrestling.com/tw/seasons/DualMatches.jsp?TIM=1480569149167&twSessionId=aeokcigswfsoxyj&dualId=28477010&teamId=66184107
