Wrestling: Osan gamble pays off, but barely
OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea – With defending league champion Humphreys not around, Osan won both of its dual meets in a Korea tri-meet at Osan, but not without a major scare at 180 pounds.
Seoul Foreign senior Brian Choe, a former Seoul American wrestler, won his very last bout before leaving to transfer to the States.
He won a 4-0 decision over Cougars junior Marcus Inthavixay, a reigning Far East champion, who moved up from 158 to 180 just to wrestle Choe. The Cougars escaped with a 29-26 win over the Crusaders.
“We rolled the dice and it almost cost us,” Cougars coach Andrew Grant said.
