January 27, 1993|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Contributing Writer

No. 3 North Carroll didn't take long to pin down a victory last night at Westminster.

The Panthers scored pins in four of the first five matches -- and six overall -- and rolled to a 49-13 victory over Westminster in a Central Maryland Conference match.

North Carroll (9-0, 5-0) clinched at least a tie for the conference title with the victory.

The Panthers dominated the match from start to finish. The Panthers won eight of the 12 matches. North Carroll also took one forfeit.

"I didn't expect too much of the team being in danger," said North Carroll coach Dick Bauerlein. "If we hadn't have gotten [the early pins], I [might] have been disappointed."

North Carroll has scored victories like this in every match this season. The Panthers have outscored opponents 494-80 so far this year.

Westminster coach Solomon Carr said he liked his team's work against a tough opponent.

"I think overall the team wrestled pretty well," said Carr. "I think our guys put up a valiant effort."

Andy Cromey (119), Brad Schisler (140), Neil Brennan (152) and heavyweight Art Jenne scored victories for Westminster (3-6, 1-3).

The Panthers set the tone immediately with the four pins. Three of them came in the first period, as North Carroll jumped to a 24-3 lead.

Doug Dell (103, 15-0), ranked second in the state, gave North Carroll a good start by pinning Matt Warner at 1:32 for a 6-0 lead.

State champion Jeremy Myers (112, 15-0), ranked first in the state, followed with another pin. He pinned Don Smith only 58 seconds into the match for a 12-0 lead for North Car


Cromey then got Westminster on the scoreboard. Cromey (119) controlled his match with Gene Phillips most of the way en route to an 11-4 decision.

The Kiler brothers then put North Carroll back on track. Tommy, at 125, took a 6-1 lead after one period against Steve Sheppard and pinnedhim at 3:31.

Andy Kiler (130, 13-0) did the same thing against CraiDiehlman. Andy, ranked sixth in the state, dominated and pinned Diehlman at 1:12 for a 24-3 Panther advantage.
