The varsity Rams returned to their winning ways Saturday, taking two out of three matches in a quad meet held at Paramus High School. Randolph defeated Pequannock 56-30 and Belvidere 66-22 before falling to Paramus in the final round, 67-29.
The first match, against Pequannock, featured pins by five Rams — Elijah Quniones, Matt DeStefanis, Mitch Hert, Omar Lopez-Valle and Derek Rooney — as well as a tech-fall by David Turner. A two-forfeit advantage contributed to the Rams’ margin of victory.
In the second match, Randolph rode pins by seven Rams: Quinones, DeStefanis, Hert, and Lopez-Valle each recorded their second fall of the day, with additional pins by Evan Cannon, Michael Scalley, and Kristopher Charles.
Paramus prevailed over the Rams by winning five matches in the heart of Randolph’s usually-victorious “murderers row.” Bonus-point wins by Johnny Hager, DeStefanis, Jake Pontelandolfo, and Lopez-Valle narrowed Paramus’ advantage.
Randolph’s record improved to 6-4 in the Tri-County league and 17-10 overall. The Rams wrap up the Grade School season tomorrow with the team playoffs, before continuing the Tri-County season Tuesday night at Montville.
