VIDEO: Caldwell storms back for wrestling win over Irvington
Written by - Tuesday, January 19 2016  

Down 21-0 after the first four bouts of the night, Caldwell stormed from behind to earn a Super Essex Conference wrestling win over Irvington. The Chiefs picked up five pins on their way to the 39-30 triumph.

Gerald Jones, Dan Fano and Dean Caravela helped Caldwell work back into the match with falls. The Chiefs took the lead at 170 pounds on a pin by Christian Dalla Riva, and Ryan Schaffer's fall at 182 pounds all but sealed the deal.

After a decision to open the match, consecutive pins by Brisner Xavier, Franklin Fervil and Clerson Xavier allowed the Blue Knights to seize the big early lead.

Irvington is 7-5 this season, but 0-5 in the highly-competitive American Division of the Super Essex Conference. Four of the five divisional defeats for the Blue Knights have been by less than 10 points.

Caldwell is 9-3 overall, and now 5-0 in SEC American competition. With big wins over Cedar Grove and Nutley already in hand, the Chiefs need a victory over Seton Hall Prep next week to secure the division title.
