From the tight decisions to pins and everything in between, things went South Carroll's way last night against visiting Glenelg.

The No. 8 Cavaliers took the initiative throughout, continually a move ahead of the No. 15 Gladiators and the reward was a convincing 45-18 win.

With 119-pounder Mike Horbey getting things started with a 7-6 decision over Dave Brindza on a last-minute takedown, the Cavaliers won the next six matches - including back-to-back pins from JV call-up Darrel White (135) and 140-pounder Mike Willingham to build a 29-0 lead.

The Cavaliers stayed perfect at 9-0 while Glenelg fell to 5-2.

"We wrestled real well. We handled them on our feet, staying aggressive. I think we had the majority of the takedowns and we also wrestled well in the third period to win a couple matches," said South Carroll's Dennis Frazier.

Horbey started the positive trend.

Trailing 6-1 at the start of the second period and 6-4 at the start of the third, he got an escape early and then scored the takedown with 45 second left before holding off Brindza.

"It was a tough match; I knew he was tough," said Horbey. "I just knew I had to get the takedown to set the tone for the team. It was real close - too close."

Andrew Winfield scored a second-period fall over Eric Hufnagel at 171 to give the Cavaliers a 35-6 lead before Tim Ferguson capped the match for South Carroll at 189 with a pin of Mike Chase in the first period.

The Gladiators got pins from Dan Bianco (160) and John Delbrugge (215) and a decision win from 112-pounder Robbie Black.
