ROYERSFORD — Spring-Ford was trying to wrap up its third straight second-place finish and Methacton was looking for an upset when the two teams completed their Pioneer Athletic Conference wrestling schedules Wednesday night.
And late in the match, either of those outcomes was still possible after the Warriors closed to within a point with three bouts to go.
But Spring-Ford senior Ben Schein — who had pulled off one of the biggest wins of the year a week ago — came through again. This time he earned a major decision to keep his team on top and Frankie Krauss and Jon Cooper followed with decisions of their own for a 33-21 win. As a result, the Rams (8-1, 20-4 overall) once again finished as runner-up to three-time undefeated champion Owen J. Roberts, a 59-10 winner over Phoenixville.
