After having finished third in their own Mid-Carolina Credit Union Holiday Classic last weekend, the Lugoff-Elgin wrestling team returned to dual match action and posted a pair of victories over Chester and Northwestern in a Tuesday night tri-match in Chester.

The Demons knocked off the host Cyclones, 42-29, before Peter Hemingway’s charges improved to 7-1 on the season by knocking off Northwestern, 42-33.

In the opener against Chester, Devin Wilson evened the match by winning by pin at 106 pounds. Trailing, 9-6, L-E used four wins in a row to race to a 30-9 advantage. Scoring pins in that stretch were Donneal Johnson (120), Jacob Power (126), Noah North (138) while Jacob Carron won via forfeit at 132.

Chester won at 145 and 152 to close the gap to 30-21. L-E received a pin from Jason Grant at 160 while Alex Register won by forfeit at 195 to give the Demons an insurmountable 42-33 cushion heading into the 220-pound finale.

Against Northwestern, the Demons jumped to a 3-0 lead after Wilson won the 106-pound opener by decision. Down, 6-3, L-E rattled off five straight wins by pins with those coming from Elijah Dixon (120), Power (126), Carron (132), North and Taylor Catoe at 145 to go up, 33-6. Grant then won by pin at 160 before Seth Branham won by decision at 220 to put the lead at 42-27 with one match left.

The Demons will head to Lexington today for the two-day River Bluff Invitational.
