Campbell Wrestling needed every last bout, including a final takedown from Jere Heino to upset The Citadel, 19-16, Thursday night.
The Fighting Camels were tied heading into the heavyweight class when Heino landed a takedown in the final 20-seconds, holding on by preventing an escape from The Citadel to secure the win, firing up an emotional crowd inside Carter Gym.
Campbell has now won consecutive dual matches for the first time since Jan. 23, 2014, improving to 2-2 in Southern Conference play. Check out the closing moments during a back-and-forth affair.
The Fighting Camels return to action this Sunday in Boiling Springs, N.C. for a SoCon matchup against Gardner-Webb at 3 p.m.
