PRINCETON -- Rosewood emerged victorious in five of eight contested individual matches and turned back archrival Princeton 43-18 on the wrestling mat Monday evening.

The Eagles (18-8 overall) recorded three falls, one decision and one major decision against the short-handed Bulldawgs.

"It is never good to wrestle on Monday, but I'll take the win," said Rosewood coach Bill Edmundson. "You never know what shape or what weight the boys will come in at, but they did a great job maintaining their weight and endurance.

"I thought Jamie Wooten, Cameron Lane and Sammy Ennis wrestled great tonight."

Wooten, who competed at 189 pounds, pinned Princeton's Matt Canada in 53 seconds. Lane needed 70 seconds to pin Bulldawg heavyweight Logan Rains and Ennis scored a tight 9-5 decision over 130-pounder David Waddell.

Rosewood's Zach Behrend moved up to 112 pounds and earned his third win over Matthew Evans this season. Teammates Chris Lane (103), Dillon Guss (140), Joshua Holmes (145) and Aaron Keefer (215) each collected a win.

The trio of Patrick Woodard (152), Zach Stevens (160) and Tyler Baker (171) accounted for most of Princeton's team points. Woodard recorded a first-period pin, while Stevens and Baker each notched a decision.

Drew Malarchick received a forfeit at 125 pounds.

Both teams return to action later this week. Princeton entertains North Johnston on Wednesday, while Rosewood travels to Greene Central on Thursday.

Eagles grounded

Wayne Christian could not overcome a slow offensive start and eventually fell 47-34 to Carolina 1-A Christian Conference opponent Cape Fear Christian on Monday night.

The teams battled to a 6-6 tie in the opening six minutes, but Cape Fear pulled away as the first quarter expired. A 7-0 run that spanned five minutes pushed the Eagles into the lead, but the excitement was short-lived.

Cape Fear answered with a 15-4 run and seized a 21-16 halftime advantage.

After an even third period, the visitors pulled away in the fourth quarter. Erica Holmes delivered the knockout punch with three minutes to play as she buried a 3-pointer from the left wing and sealed the win.

Wayne Christian (9-4 overall, 5-3 CCC) was led by Julia Oden's 14-point effort off the bench. Kayla Kennedy and Jennifer Price each scored six points. Hanna Kaler pulled down a team-high 12 rebounds.
