Wrestling: Panthers down Chiefs; Trojans top Braves

The North Myrtle Beach wrestling team’s home opener against intra-county Carolina Forest on Wednesday featured more pins than a bowling alley, but it was the Panthers coming out on top of the Chiefs by a 60-24 score.

Eleven of the 14 weight classes were determined via pin, with seven Panthers and four Chiefs stopping their opponents in the first or second rounds. The other three divisions were decided by forfeit, all three in favor of Carolina Forest.

The Panthers earned pins or forfeits in the first nine weight divisions – Braeden Bernhardt (120), PJ Wunderlich (126), Jason Jacoby (132), Noah Sritan (138), Luke Ashworth (152), and John Winzenreid (160). Phwint Maung (285) also earned a quick pin in the heavyweight class.

North Myrtle Beach dominated the rest of the higher weight classes with four straight pins. Jershawn Black (170), Rahsaan Vereen (182), Curtis Wolfe (195), and Malachi Black (220) won their matches by pins.

The two teams go their separate ways this weekend for major tournaments. The Chiefs will take part in the Westside Duels, while the Panthers will compete in the Border Wars.

* West Brunswick 48, Socastee 27: The Braves found themselves in an early hole they couldn’t dig out of in a head-to-head matchup with the North Carolina power.

Starting at the 160-pound class, West Brunswick used three pins and two forfeits to jump out to a commanding 30-0 lead.

But the Braves answered with first-round pins by CJ Armstrong (285) and Tyler Ward (113), and close decisions by Nicholas Ward (106) and Timothy Linder (120) to trim the deficit to 30-21.

But a forfeit win by Freddie Edwards (132) was all the Braves could muster the rest of the way. They return to action this weekend at the Silver Fox Invitational.
