The Bulldogs started strong against Clarkston. Romeo got off to a 12-6 lead after four matches. Romeo built on their lead over the next 5 matches to take a 28-18 lead going into the last 5 matches. Clarkston had five senior wrestlers who are no strangers to the wrestling mat waiting at the top of their line-up. The Bulldogs wrestled hard and went nip and tuck, but lost 4 straight decisions before Clarkston closed the deal with a first period pin.
It was the kind of dual meet you would expect from two top teams. All in all the Bulldogs wrestled with heart and left it all on the mat. Romeo ends the season with an overall record of 18-3. Here is the box score from the dual meet:
