While the score stayed close early in the game, Good Counsel showed much more fight on the defensive end, creating turnovers and thus baskets in transition. Springbrook had jumped out to a 16-10 lead as Good Counsel wasn’t able to convert its opportunities on the offensive end, but with just under seven minutes to play in the first half, the high energy defense from Falcons began to pay its dividends.

Good Counsel’s up-tempo play propelled them on an 8-2 run to tie the game at 18 with 1:52 to play in the first half, the two would go into the half tied at 20. The Falcons started strong in the second half as well, leading by five points with 10:43 to go in the half.

Ohio State’s Kyle Snyder made it look easy, but it wasn’t.

The Buckeyes junior overcame a rib injury to win his final three of five matches as well as vanquish an opponent who had 38 pounds on him en route to earning his second straight NCAA title at 285 pounds on Sunday at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, where the Good Counsel graduate’s crowning achievement was a 6-3 decision over Wisconsin’s Connor Medberry.

A reigning World Champion and 2016 Olympic gold medalist from Woodbine, Snyder improved his record on the year to 17-0 and his collegiate winning streak to 33-0 and led his Buckeyes to a runner-up finish to Penn State, winner of its second straight crown and sixth in the past seven years under coach Cael Sanderson.

“It was a lot of fun. I love competing in that environment on the big stage in front of huge crowds. I receive tons of support from Ohio State and Buckeye Nation,” said Snyder, 21, who reached the finals on a pair of technical falls, a decision and a major decision.
