Kemp plays the heavy for Academy Park

Academy Park’s Daniel Kemp made short work of his opponent Thursday, scoring a pivotal pin in the heavyweight match in 1 minute, 44 seconds to clinch a 42-34 nonleague win over Bensalem.

Kemp’s pin ended a four-bout winning streak by the Owls that threatened to take control of the match. That run followed pins by Elijah Gilmore at 152 pounds and Max Fitzgerald at 160 for the Knights (12-12).
