Lions put stranglehold on foes, sweep home mat meet

Strong-numbered Belfast too much for five opponents

By Staff | Dec 10, 2019

BELFAST — The numbers are there for the Belfast wrestling team to have a successful season, and the talent also is there for individuals to potentially find strong mat experiences, as the Lions showed their muscle in the first meet of the year on Saturday, Dec. 6.

Belfast hosted a six-team meet, the Belfast Duals, and wrangled to five victories in as many matches to sweep its opponents to start the year on the right foot, as the Lions took down Ellsworth 60-12, Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft 49-23, Medomak Valley of Waldoboro 39-36, Mount Desert Island of Bar Harbor 66-12 and Oceanside of Rockland 52-30.
