January 28, 1991|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,Evening Sun Staff

Broadneck's wrestling team grabbed the momentum early and never looked back in defeating No. 1-ranked Old Mill, 31-28.

The No. 7 Bruins got a 10-0 victory at 103 pounds when No. 6-rated Charlie Bennett upset No. 2-rated Steve Lundstrom in the first match, 10-0, and Broadneck's top-rated Shawn Miller earned a quick pin at 112 pounds.

Another key match came at 152. Broadneck's Seth Lopatkiewicz, who earlier had lost in the Annapolis Tournament to Old Mill's John Earle, pinned Earle in the third period for a six-point swing and an insurmountable 31-10 advantage.

Broadneck will visit Annapolis Wednesday night, aiming for a chance to share the Anne Arundel County title with Old Mill. If Annapolis wins, tri-champions probably will be declared.

New Maryland State Wrestling Association team rankings will be announced tomorrow. Mount St. Joe, currently No. 2, likely will move up.

No. 3 Owings Mills placed second to powerful St. Mark's of Delaware in the Gilman Duals over the weekend. The Golden Eagles' Greg Kessler (125) earned an individual gold medal for three victories, including a comeback 5-4 decision over Don Rosas. Kessler, a sophomore, defeated Rosas last year as Owings Mills also finished second to St. Mark's.

Gilman defeated Blair Academy to take third and Aberdeen topped DeMatha for fifth place. Westminster finished eighth.
