The Baltimore bad boys have wreaked terror on the mats of the War on the Shore this weekend, and the proof comes by the way the 12 semifinalists made their way to the 2010 tournament finals.
Of the 12 finalists from the Baltimore-area, 11 have recorded falls in route to their championship finals appearance, four of whom pinned their way to their finals position.
Centennial’s Nathan Kraisser (125) started the pinning trend, recording three to his finals spot and was followed by Old Mill’s Salamon Ridell (140), recording three falls.
Spalding’s Charlie Lynch (152) then worked working pins and Mount St. Joe’s Tyler Tippett, having a bye, pinned twice in the tournament.
Curley’s Purnell Summers and Avery Williams each rallied for two falls at 171 and 189, respectively, as did Spalding’s Brady Gaynor at 135 and Mike Still at 103.
Other Baltimore pinners include Cole Gallagher (112), Brady Massaro and Will Switzer (145).
The Cavs hold the lead among the Baltimore teams with nine falls by five finalists, but all the teams’ finalists combined account for more than 20 falls in the tournament.
The medal rounds of the War on the Shore are set to begin at 6:15 p.m. in the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.
