Buford High wrestling coach John Mahaffey’s instructions to his Jackets squad entering its  match with host Lancaster on Wednesday night was simple.

“I just told them to go out and win the matches we had to wrestle,” Mahaffey said. “We pretty much did. There were three matches where we were giving up points and one where we got no points, so it was important to get as many points as possible.”

The match was tied at 24-all, but the Jackets used a 17-6  surge to seal the 41-30 victory.

Andrew Broome, Marcus Pressley and Garrett Johnson each posted a pin to go with a Dylan Altman superior decision to seal the match.

“I knew it would be a close, competitive match,” Mahaffey said. “We had a good finish and were able to get the points we needed.”

LHS coach Jeff Foo saluted the Jackets.

“Buford is a tough squad,” Foo said. “Their skill level is higher. They manhandled us for the most part.”
