Cody Anderson looks toward the crowd shortly before pinning his opponent at 182 pounds during Sheffield’s match against Bradford on Tuesday night. The Wolverines defeated the Owls, 54-16.
After an 0-6 start to the season, the Wolverines record now stands at 7-8.
The match was over in under fifteen minutes, as the two teams combined for seven forfeit victories.
Doug Grubbs (145) quickly pinned his opponent after a forfeit victory to give the Wolverines a 12-0 lead early on.
Bradford would answer back with a 19-10 major decision over Dakota Schooler (160) and a forfeit win before Sheffield ran away with things.
Cody Anderson (182) and Tanner Barr (120) would each pin their opponents, and five more Wolverines recorded wins via forfeit.
"We got some more inexperienced guys some matches, and they wrestled well," Sheffield coach Jack Rice said. "Forfeits were the name of the game tonight."
The Wolverines will travel to Cranberry on Thursday.
