SNOW HILL -- Another shutout.

Rosewood emerged victorious in four contested matches and received nine forfeits in a 77-0, non-conference trouncing of winless Greene Central on the wrestling mat Friday evening.

It was the Eagles' second straight shutout of the Rams after a lopsided victory just six days ago in the 11th annual Terry Pilkington Memorial Duals in Pikeville.

Scott Pate (130 pounds), Will Sawrey (135) and heavyweight Jacob Guthrie each pinned their respective opponent. Zach Behrend earned a technical fall (15-0) over the Rams' Spencer McClung at 130 pounds.

Chris Lane, Nick Quillen, Nick Lowery, Tyler Dean, Bradley Mills, Jacob Roberts, Jamie Wooten, Taylor McGill and Cameron Lane each drew a forfeit against the short-handed Rams.

Neither team put a 140-pounder in its respective lineup.

Rosewood (15-5 overall) competed in the Carolina/Four Rivers 1-A Conference duals on Saturday at Ayden-Grifton. The top two finishers earned berths in the N.C. High School Athletic Association dual-team playoffs.

Saints battle

DUDLEY -- Wilson Hunt emerged victorious in the final two individual matches and turned back Southern Wayne 40-36 in a non-conference, dual-team affair.

Southern Wayne grabbed a 36-30 lead on back-to-back victories from heavyweight Matthew Dunn and 103-pounder Travis Memmelaar. The Warriors tallied the final 10 points on Luigi Medina's forfeit at 112 pounds and Jake Britt's match-clinching major decision at 119.

Hunt remained unbeaten in six outings this season.

The Saints (0-8 overall) also received wins from Jacob Richards (140 pounds), Jamison Dove (145), Ethan Brogden (152) and Minek Ford (160). Brogden and Ford pinned their respective opponents.

Neither team submitted a full lineup of 14 wrestlers.

Southern Wayne's next dual match is Jan. 19 at South Johnston.
