Bristol's two first-period pins turned out to be the difference in a 36-24 Bicentennial Athletic League wrestling win at Phil-Mont Christian Wednesday.

The league opener for both schools was a back-and-forth contest until Tom Kelly, a senior, pinned Ted Eckel in the first period of their 112-pound bout.

Teammate Randy Cope put the match away for the Warriors by decking Ryant Robert with five seconds left in the first period.

The match featured an anomaly with no bouts ending in a decision. All 13 matches were either won by a fall or a forfeit.

Friends Schools. Chris Callans pinned Dustin Hill in the first period of the 140-pound bout to propel Friends' Central to a 47-15 win at Abington Friends.

Another key win for the Phoenix came at 130, when Kerry Snider registered a major decision over Jake Segal, 9-0.

Public. Carlos Noisette got Olney off to a good start with a third-period pin at 145 pounds as the Trojans handled visiting Kensington, 60-6.

The Trojans (2-0) beat Franklin Towne Charter last week.

Nariman Lomidze pinned Anton Medford (1 minute, 9 seconds) in the 215-pound bout.

Catholic. St. Joseph's Prep beat visiting rival Roman Catholic, 45-30, but had to wait until near the end of the match to do it as Paul Johnson pinned Sam Baron-Harris in the third period of the heavyweight bout.

The win rendered the final two bouts of the evening meaningless.

The matched opened at 119.

The Hawks registered seven pins prior to that one, none more impressive than Mike Delsignore's first-period decking of Roman Catholic's Matt Niemiein in the 130-pound bout.
