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.
