POTTSTOWN — The Pottstown wrestlers got back into action a day or two earlier than most following the holiday break with a non-league match Wednesday night against Glen Mills. And even though the Trojans had enjoyed a few extra days off and probably too much to eat over the last week or so, they certainly showed that they were ready to get back to work with an impressive 52-18 win at Strom Gymnasium.
The Trojans (7-2) won a couple of close decisions early on and earned five pins later as they took the final eight bouts of the night after trailing by an 18-12 score following the 285-pound match. The contest began a busy week and month for Pottstown, which will return to Pioneer Athletic Conference competition against Pottsgrove on Friday and then travel to the Avon Grove Devil Duals on Saturday.
