The Vikings won the final five matches to erase what had been a 32-20 Pearl River advantage.
John Muldoon, a section runner-up last season, needed only 1:31 to pin Chris Hiep in the 126-pound match, but that was not the only strong performance by the Pirates.
That wasn't the quickest pin by a Pirate Thursday. Ryan Mullahy caught Nick Russo for a fall in 1:12 at 160 pounds. Nick Simeti also won by pinfall, beating Anthony Concepcion in 2:23 in the 138-pound match.
Sophomore James Kelly continued to impress with a 17-2 technical fall over Chris Cummings. Kelly is expected to drop down to 99 pounds after the holidays and should be a contender at sectionals.
