Evan Toth and Detroit Catholic Central seemed all but finished heading into the final period of the final bout of the Division 1 Team Wrestling Final against Davison on Feb. 23, 2013.

And then, in a little more than an instant, Toth changed his and his team’s fortunes.

Trailing 9-2 in the 125-pound finale – and with DCC down 26-23 – Toth took down his opponent and then worked 40 seconds for the pin that pulled the Shamrocks past the Cardinals 29-26.

“I’ve been in that situation before,” Toth said after. “I knew we needed more than three points, and I was looking for something big the whole match. I knew what I had to do. You have to wrestle the whole six minutes. (Winning the championship) is the highest high you can have.”
