In a match knotted at 39 after all 14 weight classes had been contested, Cheraw’s advantage in teams points led to the Braves taking a 40-39 victory over Camden in a Thursday night tri-match which included Hartsville.

Camden, ranked sixth in the most recent AAA state poll, got past the Red Foxes, 39-36, to come out of the non-conference meet with a split.

In a see-saw battle with Cheraw, the Bulldogs jumped to a 12-0 lead when Benny Rost followed up teammate Jehoiada Timms’ forfeit at 106 pounds with a first period pin at 113. Cheraw, the fifth-ranked team in the most recent AA-A poll, evened things at 12 with a forfeit win at 120 and a pin at 126 pounds.

The Braves would forfeit to Carl Jones at 132 before Caid Cokley used a third period pin at 138 to put the hosts on top, 24-12. Three straight pins and a win via decision by the Braves gave them the lead at 33-24. A victory via injury gave Cheraw the 39-24 advantage.

Camden closed with a flurry as Clenzo Foreman scored a second period pin at 195 with Donovan Engram following suit at 220. Jevontae Salmond then closed the match with a 10-7 victory at 285 pounds to deadlock things at 39 which sent the match to the criteria involving team points which was won by Cheraw.

The Dogs had to overcome a 15-0 deficit after three matches in their win over Hartsville.

Camden hit the board for the first time when Cokley won a 9-8 decision at 132 pounds. Garrit Strunga and Will Jordan both recorded pins at 138 and 145, respectively, to tie the match at 15. The Red Foxes used a pin at 152 to go on top, 21-15.

Camden used forfeits at 160, 170 and 182 --- with Darius Brisbon, Jalen Holliday and Chris Todd getting credit for the walkovers --- to take a 33-21 advantage before Clenzo Foreman scored a pin just 48 seconds into his 195 pound pairing to extend the margin to 39-21.

The Red Foxes closed the match with two pins and a decision victory to get to reduced the final deficit to three points.

 Camden, which is 1-1 in Region 4-AAA, will host league foes Chester and Indian Land tonight in a 6 p.m. start before traveling to face Lugoff-Elgin Thursday in a 6 p.m. tri-match which includes Edisto.
