Owls settle for apparent tie; Lowell claims win

Technically, Timberlane fell from the ranks of the unbeaten yesterday, but you might be hard pressed to convince many of the Owls that it happened.

And, as it turns out, the Owls may have only added a tie to their record, not a loss, although Lowell disputes that. In a barnburner of a dual meet between the defending Division 1 state champions of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the Owls (14-0-1) rallied from a 27-13 deficit with four straight wins to tie the meet, 27-27, only to temporarily drop the decision on the third criteria, which | by federation rules | is number of pins.

No upset this time for Salem vs. unbeaten Owls

This was not, said Timberlane coach Barry Chooljian, your typical Timberlane-Salem dual meet.

In a rivalry that witnessed two of the greatest dual meets in area history, a 31-30 Salem win in 2000 that broke a 103-meet Timberlane winning streak in New Hampshire and a 34-33 barnburner in 2003 that snapped a 49-meet Owls' winning streak, you come to expect great meets.

An athletic 6-5, 275-pounder, Owls' Nicoll not your typical heavyweight

Anyone who has watched a lot of high school wrestling knows what to expect from most heavyweight matchups.

Two very large young men well over 235 pounds, some still sporting a fair amount of baby fat, push and shove, trying to outmuscle each other and rarely shooting for a takedown. Eventually there may be a pin, but boring 2-1 decisions are just as common.

Strength in numbers for Owls

Pinkerton Vs. Timberlane wrestling Thursday evening at Pinkerton Academy in Derry.4 Photos

On a night in which both teams were at less than full strength, Timberlane showed why it still has the top wrestling program in New Hampshire.

Pinkerton was missing three starters last night, including standout sophomore Ian Beck (sore shoulder), and Timberlane also didn't start three regulars, whether because of sickness (standout freshman Matt Morris) or because head coach Barry Chooljian wanted them rested for the rugged Eastern States Classic, which begins today.

Pinkerton (120) was sixth, Central Catholic (111) came in eighth and Salem, N.H. (102<1/2>) tied for 10th.
