IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Dom Schepis reversed his fortune and that of the match, Wednesday.The Harrison freshman overcame a seven-point deficit in the second period to pin his opponent and seal a 48-39 victory over host Irvington in a high school wrestling match.
Harrison appeared to be in control when it reeled off six pins in seven matches, but wins by Irvingtons Drew Cohen (145 pounds) and Manny Figueroa (152), closed the deficit to three points -- 42-39 -- going into the final bout.
Peter Jones led Schepis, 12-5 in the period before the Harrison freshman put him to his back and finished the pin with five seconds in the period.
