CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (February 4, 2001) -- Spencerport wrestlers met one more challenge yesterday, as they knocked off the top team in the state to reassert themselves as the top team in Section V.

The Rangers watched Canandaigua rise through the rankings and finally knocked off the Braves 27-17 in a non-league dual meet in front of a big crowd at Canandaigua last night.

"Once we got everything falling into place, it felt like nothing could go wrong," Spencerport's Jordan Raines said after his team improved to 83-0-1 against Section V teams since 1994.

There were few fireworks in the form of pins for the 1,150 fans. Instead, Spencerport's middleweights strung together six consecutive wins from 130-160 pounds.

Spencerport's Jared Moreland recorded the only fall at 119 pounds, but the Rangers still trailed 8-6 after he pinned Canandaigua's Jadon Lynn in 2:53.

"We needed to win three of the first four matches and we did that," Canandaigua coach Rich Romeo said. "I was looking at splitting the next four."

Momentum began turning Spencerport's way during a Canandaigua victory, as Trevor Chinn edged junior Dan France, 5-4.

The match was a lot closer than expected, as the two-time Section V champion hung on to beat France, picking up three instead of four, five or even possibly six points for the Braves.

Mike Brongo followed France's effort with a 5-3 win over Canandaigua's Wade Clar at 130 to cut Spencerport's deficit to 11-9.

Jordan Raines at 135 was next and he beat Sam Hapstak, 3-1 to put the Rangers ahead to stay, 12-11.

"I think we were overexcited," Canandaigua's Mike Cuppernell said. "We did some things we usually don't do." The Rangers' already revved-up fans went into high gear and so did the team, as Mike Bourne beat Tom Cuppernell 3-0 in a tough match at 140. Steve Stulpin then beat T.R. Chinn 4-2 at 145, in the matchup of the meet.

After a scoreless first period, there were three seconds left in the second when T.R. Chinn slipped off of Stulpin. Chinn landed partially on his back handing Stulpin four points and could only score a reversal.
