Garrett Stewart was up 5-0 after the first period Friday against Palisade’s Trevor Garcia and looked to be riding to an easy victory. Stewart, a Moffat County High School junior, was trying to get the MCHS varsity wrestling team’s first win in the Bulldogs lone home meet of the season, but it wasn’t going to come easy. Garcia trailed 8-2 heading into the third and final period of the 138-pound match-up, but used a combination of takedowns and nearfalls to tie the match, 11-11, in the final 10 seconds to force overtime. Stewart said he had no energy left heading into the overtime period, but somehow turned Garcia’s attempted throw into a takedown and scored the pin with 14 seconds remaining.
