ADAMS — General Brown reclaimed the Frontier League’s “B” Division title by grinding out a 37-34 victory over rival South Jefferson on Thursday.

Jacob Joanette’s pin of Logan Mitchell in three minutes, 46 seconds in the 170-pound weight class proved to be the crucial swing match for the Lions, and Zech Pitre’s pin of Nakita Bedore in 1:04 at 285 pounds was the clinching victory.

General Brown, which won the division title two years ago, improved 25-0 overall, 8-0 in league play.

“South Jefferson was the co-state champion last year,” General Brown coach Mike Hartle said. “So for us to beat them three times this year is a great accomplishment for our program.”

“There were a lot of swing matches tonight,” Hartle said. “Some of our guys battled for six minutes and didn’t allow pins or major decisions. And the guys who did get pins did their jobs. I’m proud of these guys.”

Tyler Silverthorn (152) prevailed by major decision for the Lions and Garrett Fields (119) and Trevor Snow (145) each won by fall.

Caleb Beach (132) won by major decision for the Spartans (24-5, 7-1) and Jared Carroll (106) won by pin.

The Warriors captured nine of 15 weight classes, five by pinfall, to gain an interdivision victory at Philadelphia.
