The strength of the Atholton wrestling team starts at the lighter weights and works its way up to the middle.

The question for the Raiders going into last night's match against visiting River Hill was whether theywould be strong enough to handle the No. 5 Hawks.

The answer: a resounding yes.

The Raiders got major decisions from Robbie Eloshway (103) and Bruce Steinel (112); pins from Jeff Zillmer (125) and Ross Lewin (130); followed by decisions from Doug Carpenter, Ted Johnson and Ryan Conroy, to come away with the program's first win over River Hill, 33-24.

The match started with the 152-pound class, and the Hawks (0-2) got consecutive pins from Taylor Green and Alex Angelidis to help build a 21-3 lead before getting to the lighter weights.

The Raiders (3-2) took it from there. Lewin needed just 49 seconds to pin Saud Mohammed, tying the score at 24. Carpenter grinded out an 8-3 decision over David Buescher on a sore ankle to put the Raiders up for good, with Johnson and Conroy clinching the win.

Atholton coach Bruce Lindblad said pivotal efforts came from 215-pounder Kyle Cicora, who edged Evan Krauss for a 5-3 decision, and Steinel, who got four points with an 11-3 major over Ryan Williams.

Hereford 39, No. 4 Harford Tech 31 -- Pins from Bobby Fouts (160) and Anthony Schabbach (215) helped the host Bulls (5-0) upset the Cobras (4-2).
