PIKEVILLE — Southern Nash won three of the contested five matches against host C.B. Aycock and the Firebirds pulled out a 33-31 victory in a June 2 tri-match.
Both the Firebirds and Golden Falcons defeated Hunt.
Aycock won the first four matches, including Kevin Dickenson’s 13-3 major decision over Luis Arellano at 145 pounds. The tide turned, however, when the Firebirds’ Nathaniel Palacios pinned Keegan Hudson in 33 seconds, starting a run of five straight wins by Southern Nash.
Noah Cauble pulled out a 4-3 decision over CBA’s Dawson Sauls at 170 pounds and Luke Coble pinned the Falcons’ Chance Sauls in 1:49 at 182 pounds.
Turner Bass stopped the bleeding for the Falcons with a 2-1 decision over Southern Nash’s Trondrayl Newsome at 220 pounds, but the three points weren’t enough to overcome the Firebirds.
Aycock powered to a 59-12 defeat of Hunt that featured just three contested matches. Omar Tucker earned an 18-3 technical fall over Hunt’s Jadynn Richardson at 138 pounds before Dickenson pinned Hunter Batchelor at 145 pounds. William Carter then won by fall against Hunt’s Isaiah Jenkins in their heavyweight match.
The Warriors’ two wins came by forfeit.
Hunt got its only contested win of the night against Southern Nash when Richardson pinned Julius Hill in their 138-pound match.
Arellano, Jadel Davis and Terrence Raspberry pinned their Hunt opponents in Southern’s 48-12 victory.
