ST. GEORGE — Pine View used a strong finish in the upper weights to overcome two forfeits en route to a 43-30 win over Hurricane in Region 9 wrestling on Thursday at PVHS.

Down 24-21 after Hurricane’s Allen Madsen defeated Austin Petersen at 16o pounds, the Panthers won four of the last five matches to claim the victory.

Linford also praised Cash Day, who pinned Jaron Cordova with 1:14 in the second period after Cordova had started with a quick 4-1 lead.

“Cash Day had a lot of fight in him,” Linford said.

Hurricane’s Madsen also showed some fight after Pine View’s Petersen had battled him to a 7-7 tie with a minute left in the third period. Madsen scored a takedown and a near fall to record the 12-7 win.

Matthew Lemon of Hurricane also showed fight after he and Huriel Cedillo battled through a scoreless first quarter. He then used a technical violation and a takedown to lead 3-0 before scoring a fall with 19 seconds left in the second period.
