CAMP WALKER, South Korea – Osan’s Toy Williams scored his second victory of the season over Charles Lyons of Daegu at 141 pounds in the third Korea wrestling quad-meet of the season.

But it was one of those back-and-forth struggles between two skilled mat veterans who may have stamped themselves as contenders for the 141-pound Far East tournament title next month.

“We’re both prepared to go far in the Far East championships,” Williams said after he pinned Lyons in 2 minutes, 59 seconds in a see-saw bout that saw three lead changes. Williams scored two four-point throws before securing Lyons with a head-and-arm hold for the pin.

“He’s been wrestling for a long time; he’s more skilled and he has strength,” Williams said of Lyons. “I’m in the gym and I’m watching film constantly. Since the start of the school year, I’ve been preparing hard, because I don’t want to lose this year.”
