Forfeits played a major factor in the Camden wrestling team’s splitting a pair of non-region matches with 4A opponents this week.

On Tuesday, the Bulldogs gave up three weight classes while Hartsville forfeited one. Those non-wrestled matches more than helped host Hartsville come away with a 40-39 win.

One night earlier, Camden (4-3) took advantage of six forfeits --- netting 36 points --- in Tuesday’s 54-15 victory over visiting 4A foe Richland Northeast.

In Hartsville, the two sides split the final eight of the 11 contested matches in a nip-and-tuck affair which opened with CHS forfeiting the evening-opening 138-pound contest. A Karim Kharouf second period pin at 145 gave the Red Foxes a quick 12-0 advantage which improved to 18-0 after Ethan Welsh won by a 10-0 major decision at 152.

Camden rallied with Will Jordan pinning Zach Dixon in the opening minute at 162 popunds before Jalen Holliday followed suit in putting ZyRiq Thomas on his back a little more than a minute into their 170-pound contest as the gap closed to 18-12. When Jyheem Macklin pinned Richard Williamson at 182 pounds, it leveled things at 18.

Clenzo Foreman put CHS on top, 24-18, getting a forfeit victory at 195. The Red Foxes evened things at 24 in the 220-pound division as Malcolm Guttry won with a first period pin.

Camden junior heavyweight Jevonte Salmond put the guests on top, 27-24, with a 7-2 decision over over Jake James.

A Jordan Lynch pin at 106 and Camden forfeiting at 113 put the hosts back on top before Camden’s Chandler Turner scored a third period pin over Dylan Hastey at 120. Hartsville put this one out of reach at 40-33 by getting a forfeit at 126. Camden’s Hunter McCoy closed the gap to its final one point spread with a third period pin.

On Tuesday in the Dog Pound, Camden jumped out a 36-0 lead to open the RNE match which started with Carl Jones and Brayan Acevedo receiving forfeit wins at 145 and 152 pounds, respectively. Will Jordan then needed just 55 seconds to pin Taylor Rankins at 160 pounds before teammate Jyheem Macklin won by foreit at 170.

Camden 182-pounder,  Jalen Holliday needed just 61 seconds to put Jacob Yeager on his back before sophomore teammate Clenzo Foreman won by a first period pin of Darius Adamson at 195 pounds.

After the Cavaliers won at 220, Camden heavyweight Jevonte Salmond needed 51 ticks of the clock to pin Ryan Krese. RNE forfeited the 106-pound contest to Jaime Carrera. Camden’s Chandler Turner won by forfeit at 120 pounds before a double-forfeit at 126.
