Mathis Myre triumphs at Le Sommet
It looked bad for Mathis Myre at the start but the young Hawkesbury wrestler triumphed in the end in front of a cheering hometown crowd.
Saturday night, over the February 2 weekend, snow was blowing outside of École secondaire publique Le Sommet in Hawkesbury. Inside, in the gymnasium, Mathis Myre faced Xavier Black from Lachine, Québec, in the penultimate match on the card for the evening’s GNW (Great North Wrestling) Saturday Wrestling Spectacular, and managed to pin his opponent to the mat during the final seconds before the bell.
"I’m pretty sore," said Myre, smiling, during a later interview. "But competing in my hometown, oh man! Just seeing the people cheering for me."
