Lower Cape May responded back with four straight wins and earned bonus points in the process. At 126 pounds, Conor Barikian handed the Caper Tigers their first win of the night with a 5-4 decision. Jahcere Harris operated quick to secure a 17-10 decision at 132. West Deptford forfeited at 138 pounds before freshman Gabe Tosto followed up with one of LCMR's three key wins at 144.
