The Chesterton wrestling team dropped a 35-27 Duneland Athletic Conference decision at Merrillville on Wednesday night.

Chris Merrill got things off to a good start for the Trojans with a 4-1 win over Malik Hall at 113. After a Pirate win at 120, Danny Tolin beat Juan Maldonado 1-0 at 126.

The teams would continue to alternate wins as Cade Johnson beat Anthony Rivera 6-4 at 138 and Brock Ellis pinned Elijah Sandridge in :55 at 152.

Tyler Martinís win at 160 over Devin Pope, 6-4, and a 3-2 Evan Bates win over Seyi Akinwumi at 195 pulled the Trojans within 23-21.

Back-to-back pins by Merrillville put the meet away, but Luke Stento ended the night with a fall victory at 1:39 of the first period against Joshua Krause.

Chesterton returns to the mat on Saturday when they compete in the Munster Super Duals.
