January 10, 1993|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Staff Writer

Mark Shavers' second-period pin of Arundel's Sean Quigley at 160 pounds secured No. 9 Gilman's 39-23 victory over No. 11 Arundel yesterday.

The tri-meet at Gilman (3-1), included Poly (3-4), which lost 57-6 to Gilman and 52-13 to Arundel (4-2).

Poly's 145-pound Joe Collick (6-0, four pins) was his team's only double-winner.

"I knew we needed my pin because we were looking at 189 and heavyweight as tough matches," said Shavers (16-4).

Gilman heavyweight Dave Shapiro lost, 4-2, in overtime to Arundel's John Noon (13-0, eight pins).

The Greyhounds forfeited to Arundel's sixth-ranked Greg Booth (171, 12-1) and moved Jamie Biddison to 189, where he scored a pin.

Biddison (14-6) lost, 5-4, to Poly's Rashad Kitchen, whom Booth pinned.

Arundel coach Buddy Hepfer's son, Greg (160), pinned for the Wildcats, whom Hepfer said, "just flat out got out-wrestled" by the Greyhounds.

Gilman led, 12-0, after the first three bouts. Double-winners Arman Taghizadeh (103, 15-4) won a decision, Allen West (112) had a technical fall and fourth-ranked Gerard Harrison (119, 17-0) scored a major decision.

Harrison used five takedowns against Arundel junior Dan Waters (10-2, five pins), whose only previous loss was to Northeast's second-ranked Mike Kusick.

"He was a lanky wrestler, and he reached a lot to slow me down," said Harrison, who has seven pins and three technical falls. "I had to use underhooks and short offense to get my takedowns."

Dan's twin, Don (125), won his second bout of the day by major decision, but the Greyhounds led, 24-4, after Jeff Wilke (130) and Alex Slagle (135) got their second pins of the afternoon.
