Fuschetto picked up early takedown points in the first period, but quickly gave up an escape point to Bennett. Those were the only major points awarded in the match, as the duo traded escape points the rest of the way, leading to Fuschetto’s victory. 

His second round match with Pope John’s Robert Garcia didn't end up as favorably. Fuschetto was pinned by Garcia 42 seconds into the match after an early take down, sending him to the consolation bracket.

In the wrestle back, Fuschetto couldn’t overcome Jackson Memorial’s Matt McGowan, getting pinned in the third period.

Fuschetto finishes the season with a 40-7 record
