Loyola senior Quinn McCarthy won a thrilling semifinal match Saturday at Glenbrook South to extend his season one more week.
Trailing by one point late in the third period, McCarthy pinned Rolling Meadows senior Dulguun Tungalag with 0.7 seconds remaining to advance to the 138-pound finals, where he lost to Wheeling junior Johnny Quintero. The top three wrestlers in each weight class qualify for sectionals.
McCarthy (24-10) will be joined at Barrington by teammate and senior Sean Cloherty, who finished third at 145 pounds. After losing a 5-3 decision in the semifinals, Cloherty (36-7) won both of matches in the consolation bracket, including his sectional-qualifying victory over Prospect junior William Mikes by a 6-3 decision.
