Janesville Parker sophomore Alec Anderson stepped onto the mat for the 182-pound match Tuesday night with his team holding a narrow lead against host Beloit Turner with just two matches left.
Anderson delivered with a pin in 58 seconds and the Vikings went on to collect a 42-38 nonconference victory.
“The whole meet came down to Alec at 182,” said Parker coach Shane Fleming.
“We needed a win out of him at minimum, and his pin guaranteed the win for us. He caught his guy and popped him over. His intensity won out for him and for us.”
Parker also received pins from sophomores Salvador Acosta and Ian Ramirez and freshmen Luke Pliess and Jakob Williams.
Parker improved to 5-1 in dual matches. The Vikings return to Big Eight Conference action when they host Sun Prairie on Thursday. The winner of that match advances to the Big Eight Showcase championship.
