SUNBURY - It took Selinsgrove41 years to beat Shikellamy in wrestling.
The Seals liked it so much, they've done it three times in row, now.
Keyed by a huge pin by freshman Ethan Miller over state-ranked Gage Wolfe at 189 pounds, Selinsgrove rolled to a 50-17 win over the Braves at Phil Lockcuff Gymnasium.
Miller trailed Wolfe in the third period, and had been thrown around a bit by the older wrestler. Ethan Miller caught Wolfe, put him right to his back, and picked up the fall in 4:40.
The Seals (8-0) had the match clinched before Shikellamy picked up its first win at 113 pounds in the meet that started at 152 pounds.
Leo Martinez (120), Ryan Gavason (126), Ethan Miller (189), Tucker Teats (215) and Steven Miller (285) all had pins for the Seals. Miller, Teats and Miller all bumped up a weight for the Seals in the match.
The other big win for Selinsgrove came at 160 pounds where Josiah Foss beat Coltyn Sempko, 11-6. Foss had lost all three matches previously to Sempko.
