CARL RUSSO PHOTOS:High school sports is ending soon for the summer, so let's look back at some wrestling action between Methuen and Haverhill on May 7. The Rangers swamped Haverhill, 54-22, in this season opener.

The Rangers won nine of 14 matches on the night and showed good balance in the lineups. Among the highlights was a seven-second pin by freshman Dom Gangi at 106, a 19-second pin by veteran Michael Crowe at 126 and a fall at 1:05 by another veteran, Dom DiMaio, at 160. Adam Radar had a second-period pin at 138.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Although Haverhill only won five matches, coach Tim Lawlor was far from discouraged with his short-handed squad and the Hillies did win the match of the meet at 145 when highly touted freshman Brent Nicolosi outlasted standout veteran Joe Gangi, 4-3. 5/6/2021
