Fluvanna wrestling edges out Goochland in dual

Fluvanna County’s wrestlers weren’t sure they’d even have a season just a few short weeks ago, but Wednesday night the Flucos got their season going with a match against Goochland. 


The Flucos picked up a win over the Bulldogs, edging Goochland 27-24.


Shawn Metcalf’s pin at 152 pounds led the way, with the state quarterfinalist helping spark the victory that Fluvanna edged out largely on four pins. Those pins came from Metcalf, Alex Oliva (170 pounds), Austin Moore (195 pounds)  and Jason Hamshar (220 pounds). Sean Oliva chipped in three points with a 9-4 win at 160 pounds.


Goochland scored a pair of pins from John Summitt at 132 pounds and Reece Vincent at 138 pounds along with forfeits from Max Moreno at 145 pounds and Ayden Doczi at 285 pounds.


The Bulldogs will take on Louisa Saturday while the Flucos are headed to a tri-match at William Monroe the same day.
