Few in numbers, Oceanside mighty with individual talentMariners host five opponents in Jan. 7 meet
Rockland — While few in numbers, Oceanside wrestlers continue to impress on the mat against opponents with many more mat athletes.
The Mariners hosted a six-team high school meet on Saturday, Jan. 7 and, while they did not pull out a dual-meet team win, Oceanside individuals secured a bundle of victories.
Ultimately, Oceanside, usually hampered in matches by a bundle of forfeit defeats, which make it hard to compete in the team portion of meets, fell to all five foes, including Boothbay Region 27-24, Lincoln Academy of Newcastle 34-24, Erskine Academy of South China 54-30, Mount Ararat of Topsham 66-18 and Winslow 48-21.
