Taft Drops Hard Fought Match to Loomis 27-37 Taft gave away 12 points in forfeits, which was the margin of victory for a Loomis team visiting in a scrappy, hard-wrestled match. Half the wrestled matches went to the third period, which is rare this time of year. Kelvin Welbeck started the scoring with a third period pin at 152, followed by a last second victory by Jacob Rooks at 160. Sean Cummings added another tough six minute decision, before Jamal Ahmad added a quick 24 second pin and Elijah Cohen took a forfeit. Taft was leading 24-3 before giving up two forfeits. Then Loomis hit the strength of their lineup, where Taft was putting out first year wrestlers. Captain Chase Harper added a gritty last second victory, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Loomis’ strength from 106-138. At the JV level, Lance Zhang and Griffin Elliott won their first matches. Michael Negrea, Gavin Pintro and Omar Veliz all added pins.
