January 26, 2007|By From staff reports

Louis Stiffler (285 pounds) scored a 9-7 overtime victory against Baltimore County champion Nile Alexander of No. 15 Milford Mill, and pinned his rival from No. 8 Owings Mills, in a tri-meet loss and victory, respectively, by host and sixth-ranked Hereford (11-2, 9-1) that forced a three-way tie for the county dual-meet title.

Hereford's two-time 2A-1A state champ Josh Apser (171), Zach First (125), Jeremy Keil (135) and David Fouts (140) also won twice for the Bulls (11-2, 9-1), who won, 45-29, over Owings Mills (11-1, 9-1), but lost, 35-28, to Milford Mill (15-4, 9-1).

Asper improved to 22-0 this season and 97-7 in his career for the Bulls, who are defending county dual-meet champions.

"We lost a few matches we were supposed to win," said Keil, a county runner-up and region champion who had two pins and improved to 21-3. "We'll put it behind us and move on."

A 35-28 loser to Owings Mills, Milford Mill got two wins each from Darian Allen (103), Adelake Ibironkie (119), Charles Blue (189) and Patrick Sweet (215). Winning twice for Owings Mills were Tony Mack (145) and Gary Saval (152), who are 24-0 and 22-2, respectively, as well as Kevin Dufour (112) and Cody Rosen-Stone (130).

"It came down to matchups," said Ibironkie, who trailed by three points and was nearly pinned before decking Hereford's Sean Gunn.
