Sean Murphy joins Jake Barnhart with his 100th career win for the Patriots as they roll over the Reds, 65-9, on Thursday night at PHS.
Sean Murphy became the second current Penfield wrestler to earn his 100th career win on Thursday night as the Patriots improved to 12-0 in dual meets with a 65-9 victory over visiting Newark.
Murphy registered a 10-0 major decision over Marcus Currington to win the 145 weight class as his family cheered in the stands.
"Getting 100 wins is never an easy feat," said Penfield coach John Leone. "It was a great performance."
Murphy joins Patriot teammate Jake Barnhart, who earned his 100th career win during the Pennsylvania Top Hat Tournament last weekend where he took second place at 215.
"The team took sixth place out of 18 teams," Leone said. "We had to go head-to-head with Central Mountain High School. They're ranked No. 6 in the United States. They won the tournament. We beat a few of their kids, didn't match up with everybody but it was great to be in the same gym with the No. 6 team in the country."
The meet against the Finger Lakes East League member started with the 171 weight class where Patriot John Costello eanred a 6-3 decision over Isaac Allerton.
The Reds tied the meet when captain Alex Cook edged Penfield's Andrew Dietrich, 4-3, at 189.
The rest of the meet, save the 119 match, was all Penfield.
"Newark was down on their luck a little bit. A few kids were out," Leone said. "I don't think they were at full strength.
"Our kids are pretty excited right now, off to a good start. Our focus is to get better at the end. We're all about the process. We're about middle of the process about getting as good as we possibly can be in February."
Barnhart broke the tie with a fall over Matt Blair in 3:34, and Bruno Winterman followed with a pin at 285 in 1:08 versus Brandon Scott.
Penfield's Paul Kropman (96) and Mitch Moran (103) each received forfeits. marty Lobiondo used a third period reversal to beat Sean Biere, 4-3, in the 112 weight class.
Newark co-captain Ian Ross ended the run with a fall against Remy Lalisse in 2:22 at 119.
Andrew Tyler (125) and Nick Cegelski (130) picked up forfiets for the Patriots.
Zach Koenig (135) registered a 10-0 major decision against the Reds' Austin Miller before Skyler Kropman received a forfeit at 140.
Murphy then won his 100th match as Keith Langdon followed with a 6-2 decision over Derek Parkinson at 152.
