Photo highlights from the Stoughton High wrestling team's win at Oliver Ames on Jan. 9.

After a series of 14 mostly back-and-forth matches, the Stoughton High wrestling team finished tied, 27-27, with Oliver Ames Wednesday at OA, but Stoughton was declared winner of the meet after the Black Knights took eight individual matches to OA's six.

Stoughton jumped out to a 15-6 lead, winning three of the first four matches - Nick Michienzi (170), Joey Girolamo (182), Stephen Stenstrom  (195) and Bryan Nguyen at the heavyweight class. Stenstrom recorded a pin for his victory.

Stoughton extended the lead to 21-12 with wins by Devlin Carroll (113) and Brandon Layton (120).

Oliver Ames took the next three individual matches, however, jumping ahead, 24-21.

With Mike Dixon (145) behind in his match, the senior captain made a comeback and ended up winning in the final seconds to tie the meet at 24.

After OA won the ensuing match, Stoughton needed a win at the 160 class, the final match of the evening. Otherwise, OA would escape with a narrow victory. Stefanos Kampouris delivered, earning three points and giving Stoughton the win over a Hockomock League Davenport Division rival.

Stoughton hosts Foxborough on Jan. 16.
