Indian Land notched a second wrestling  win over county rival Buford High School, taking a 46-31 victory over the Yellow Jackets on Tuesday night.

IL rallied from an early deficit to post the 15-point comeback win.

“Any region win is a good one because we wrestle in a tough region,” Indian Land coach Herb Johnson said. “Our guys are working hard trying to recover from the snow days missed.”

The No. 5 Warriors were paced by Jared Smith, Eric Komorous and Eric Taylor who each posted a pin.

Rondreas Truesdale notched a major decision for the Warriors.

BHS was led by Marcus Pressley who had a major decision along with Dylan Altman and Josh Mullens with pins and Eric McPhearson who had a decision.

The Warriors defeated the Jackets in a region quad at BHS last month when IL registered a 41-34 victory.

The Warriors faced Central of Pageland and Providence Day of Charlotte on Thursday night.

Indian Land hosts the region wrestling tournament on Saturday.
