Rallying late with three straight clutch pins Medina downed host Albion 42-32 in a Niagara-Orleans League wrestling match this evening.
Trailing 32-24, the Mustangs came battling back with three straight first period pins by Conor Crandall (189) in 1:25. Breydin McEwen-Miller (215) in 1:12 and Sawyer Kingsbury (285) in 1:30 to close the match and earn the victory.

The Purple Eagles did take the next four bouts on three forfeits and an overtime decision win by Josh Bovenzi (152) to rally into a 32-24 lead.
