The Greensburg wrestling team hosted East Central Tuesday night, the Pirate grapplers' first dual meet at home.
The Trojans topped the hosts 62-12 in a conference clash. East Central controlled the meet as the Pirate wrestlers has difficulty getting their offense going.
"Overall, I wasn't very happy with how our team wrestled tonight," said head coach Matt Cochran. "We were not as aggressive as were Saturday at Delta. A big part of that was the style the Trojans wrestled. They did a nice job of shutting us down. We will have to get back in the practice room and work to get better. Overall, we are still improving. Tonight was a small step backward. We will get better."
Winning for the Pirates were sophomore Matt Scheumann and senior Cody Black.
"Matt does a nice job of never stopping," said Cochran. "His opponent was controlling the match, but he kept moving and pounced on Moore's mistake. Scheumann's current record is 11-9. Cody Black was dominating in his match and improved his record to 5-2.
"I am proud of the strides Cody has made," said Cochran. "He suffered an early season injury, but has come back strong this week. He is definitly one of our better wrestlers, at this point.
The varsity will wrestle again on Saturday at Columbus East. There were three exhibition matches. Drew Neisius and Dalton Bernius both won their matches. The junior varsity will see action Saturday at Columbus North.
