Old Mill swept the last four bouts to break a 21-21 tie and score a 41-21 victory over Anne Arundel County League rival and host Annapolis last night to extend its winning streak to 33.
"We were worried about the lower-weight matches before tonight," said coach Mike Hampe of the two-time defending Class 3A-4A champion Patriots (7-0, 4-0), who are ranked No. 1 by the Maryland State Wrestling Association. "We talked about pride and we talked about tradition, and I think that's what kept [the streak] intact."
Annapolis (6-1, 2-1) tied the match at 21 when unranked Chip Cochran (145) beat Old Mill's sixth-ranked John Bliss, 5-3, and top-ranked Pat Flynn (152) got a third-period pin. Flynn improved to 17-0 and Cochran to 17-1.
