All 15 top-seeded wrestlers advanced into the semifinal round, with nine of them securing falls in their quarterfinal bouts. MacArthur sophomore Thomas Manning (21-3) has two first period pins at 96 and teammate Brian Herold (36-3) had two falls at 145 pounds. Nassau's defending champion Mike Lofrese (GCity) was upended by Seaford's Anthony Locast, 7-2, at 112 pounds. Top-rated freshman Dylan Palacio (27-0) of Long Beach scored with a second period reversal and used a cradle to hold on and defeated sophomore Mike Leonard (Clarke), 11-7, at 119. In another wild quarterfinal bout, #1 Thomas Jackson (37-1) of Farmingdale, outlasted Nick Romanelli (Bethpage), 14-12, at 171. Wantagh's NYS champions, Paul Liguori used his patented bar arm and John Greisheimer applied a tight cross-face cradle to record their first period pins. Wantagh's other top-seeded matmen all posted impressive victories, Nick Fitzmaurice (23-5) scored a 16-0 tech fall at 130, and Quimes Delacruz (29-1) at 140, along with junior Matt Loew (34-0, 19 pins) at 189, registered second period falls. Uniondale's Marvin Amazan (103), Joe Chamish (41-1) of Jericho at 160 and Connor Horl (35-0) of Garden City at 215, all posted decisions in their respective matches. Syosset senior Chris Williams (27-2) tossed his opponent and recorded the fall at the 3:43 mark in the 285-pound bout. Seaford has outstanding lightweights, Will Montgomery (29-3) at 96 and Anthony Facchini (30-7), at 112, both are returning All-County performers. At 119 pounds, 8th-grader Matt Schmelzinger (Lynbrook) decisioned East Meadow's Nick Falco, 8-2. In four weight classes a school has two entrants in the semifinals; MacArthur with Chris Perez (36-2) and Alex Grant (24-4) at 103, and with the aforementioned Herold and Tyler Dunne (25-9) at 145, Massapequa with Alex Kaufman (28-5) and Josh Maddock (34-4) at 152, along with Anthony Minicci (27-5) and Kevin Kennedy (24-6) of Plainedge at 160 pounds. As advertised, it appears to be a two-team race with defending team champion MacArthur and runner-up Wantagh, stay tuned...
