The Hampton Crabbers clinched the Peninsula District regular-season wrestling championship Thursday night with a 33-30 home victory over Menchville.
The match pitted teams that came into the night with unbeaten district records. Hampton coach Ron McRae said his 160-pounder, Nick Sapp, ensured the triumph in the meet’s next-to-last bout with a pin with 11 seconds left.
Hampton and Menchville still must wrestle Woodside, which has three district losses, McRae said.

This was a really close, down to the wire match that could have gone either way, but hampton in the end came out on top. alot of what if's in that match also. a stalling call with 4 seconds remaining in the heavyweight match beteen pavusa and battle cost anthony battle a point and the match when he was up by 1. also before i give the results, there was a kid for hampton(Ron Thacker) that wrestled a pretty tough menchville wrestler at 119 and lost 4-2 i believe. Thacker should have never Wrestled that match. with a HEAVILY taped leg, he limped around during warm-ups and when his time came to wrestle hobbled out onto the mat and wrestled the most couragous 6 minutes ive ever seen. that kid wrestled purely with his heart. would have love to see how good the menchville kid really is, by going up against a healthy thacker. i actually saw tears in the stands after this kids match, needing to be helped off the mat. Cant wait to see these 2 teams go at it again next weekend.

285 VERY ENTERTAINING MATCH: Pavusa(MEN) dec. Battle(HAM) 5-3 in OT. this match was the most exciting with battle ahead 3-2 and getting hit with stalling with 4 seconds left, when it looked to everyone in the gym that Battle was going into this kid and tying up and continuing to work. graet match by both wrestlers though. way to put on a match.

wow! sounds like a great match. do you think hampton will win the district tournament title to? is thacker healthy enough to win the distrcits at whatever weight he is wrestling?

i think if Thacker can come back healthy and the rest of the crabbers feed off of this win than they can win the tournament title. it will be VERY close.
