Mamaroneck's Miller is Edgemont Wrestling Champ

SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Ben Miller felt he let a winning opportunity get away early in the third period of the 152-pound final at the 35th annual Edgemont Wrestling Tournament Sunday.

The Mamaroneck senior told himself he would capitalize on it if Pawling’s Scott Porter made the same mistake - and he did. Miller transformed it into a reversal and two back points, which was the difference in a 4-2 victory.

Miller was not Mamaroneck’s only champion as Dion Duran won the 160-pound title. Troy Whittemore finished third at 120. The victory for Miller also avenged a loss to Porter, the 2011 Section 1 Division II 145-pound runner-up, in the Chris Hernandez Memorial 152-final last week.

“About 30 seconds into the third period, he tried the same move, but rolled through it,” Miller said. “I was annoyed he rolled through so when he did it again, I wanted to make sure I got him. When he did it again, I was able to catch his head, reverse him and get the back points. The first time I didn‘t catch his head.”

Miller went to school on his loss to Porter last week and came in prepared to defend against one particular move.

“I got pretty excited and pumped up knowing I could wrestle him again,” Miller said. “Last week he caught me with a cement mixer. He tried it again, but I was prepared for it. It’s awesome to have beaten him. This makes me feel mentally sound,”
