NORTH ANDOVER — When you get to this stage of the year, it doesn't matter how you finish things off. Not as long as you cap the season with a title on the biggest of stages.

Dylan Barreiro's last victory of the campaign might not have been the prettiest, but the Pinkerton junior will now always have the tag of 195-pound New England champion.

Trailing 1-0 entering the final period, Barreiro took advantage of penalty points — one for stalling and another for starting before the whistle — to pull out a 3-1 win over Connecticut champ Khamri Thomas.

"He was backing up on me," said Barreiro, who ran his season record to 46-0. "He has a defensive style, and I have an offensive style, so I kept pushing the pace."

In the final, Barreiro tied the bout with 1:19 remaining and picked up the point for Thomas stalling shortly after. After avoiding being taking down with 6 seconds left, Barreiro received the final point when Thomas broke for a quick takedown before the whistle with 5 seconds remaining.

"It was a heck of a day overall," said Barreiro, who will take a 113-14 record into his senior season. "Once I got to the semis, I knew I just had to keep going and keep going. But with (Thomas') defensive style, I knew the championship would be low scoring."

In earlier matches, Barreiro opened action with a pin in 76 seconds followed by major decision scores of 11-1 in the quarters and 14-6 in the semifinals.

"Confidence is my game," Barreiro said. "I've been training and working my (butt) off, and now I finally got to my goal."

Butterbrodt finishes in style

Two-time defending champion and St. John's Prep senior Ian Butterbrodt, a North Andover native, capped his sterling career with a pin in 1:49 of Mt. Anthony's Jack Luciano at 220 pounds.

"My goal is always the same, at least at any good tournament," Butterbrodt replied when asked if he prepared any differently for this weekend. "My coach tells me to go to a room ... tell your family to stay away, so I won't see all the T-shirts with 'Team Butterbrodt' on them."

It was the third time Butterbrodt bested Luciano. The first meeting was a 1-0 decision, but the second outing was a prelude to the third.

"He's a tough kid," Luciano said. "I've wrestled him a couple times and given him a pretty decent match, but he's just so tough. Going out I knew what to expect, but I was really hoping for something more than I put out.

Finishing his high-school career as the state's all-time leader in victories with 223, Butterbrodt recorded earlier decisions over the Connecticut and Maine champions before routing the Vermont champ in the finals.

Other area placers

In one of the top consolation comebacks, defending New England champ Jean-Luc Lemieux of Londonderry rallied from an opening-round upset to the fifth-place finisher from Massachusetts to finish fourth at 138. Lemieux had won five consolation matches, including four pins en route to a 5-3 loss to the Rhode Island champ.

"Overall, I don't think (yesterday) was that bad," said Lemieux, who finished the year 49-5 one year after a 50-0 finish. "I didn't expect to do well after my first match, so just placing today was good for me."

Brian Lonergan of Timberlane, who lost in the semis, also rebounded to finish fourth at 182.

Another semifinal casualty was Pentucket's Josh Wesolowski, who finished fifth after a 10-8 victory over

"In the back of my mind, I knew this was going to be my last high school wrestling match," Wesolowski said. "I have all my coaches and family here, so I knew I had to get a win. I just did what I had to."

Another fifth-place finish went to Richard Bilodeau of Londonderry, who scored a 6-3 decision over Dan Wensley of Wakefield.
