With a dramatic come-from-behind pin in the final match of the night, the Mountlake Terrace Hawks slipped past the Lynnwood Royals 40-36 Friday in the regular season finale for both teams.
Trailing 36-32 going into the 145 lb weight class match, Terrace’s Arun Khoe pinned the Royals’ Santiago Camache to give the Hawks the team victory. Khoe had been trailing Camache 5-0 after the first period of their match but came back for the pinfall win in the match’s last minute.
Other Hawks who picked up individual match victories over opponents on Friday were Pedro Hernandez in the 138-pound weight class, Garrett Halcomb-Stockl in the 160-pound weight class and Jacie Jones in the 182 lb weight class.
In other Terrace sports on Friday, the Hawks’ boys basketball team crushed the Cedarcrest Red Wolves 77-35 at Cedarcrest High School.
