ESCALON -- It was the match most in attendance at the Lloyd C. Engel Wrestling Tournament were waiting for, and Escalon's Jonathan Costa and Central Catholic's Ray Lomas didn't disappoint.
Two-time state qualifier Costa, methodically picking his spots, was able to take down returning state medalist Lomas in the third round and pull out a 4-2 victory in Saturday night's 170-pound championship match at Escalon High.
"It was just a great match, a real even match," Escalon coach Derek Scott said with what was left of his voice after an exhausting day. "Great match; two real smart wrestlers. They had a real hard time opening each other up."
