Evan Moxie is hoping that his Lugoff-Elgin wrestling team has a long memory.While on the subject of memories, Dorman erased some bad ones in Saturday in knocking L-E out of the 4A state tournament with a 37-33 second round victory. The win capped two frustrating years for the Cavaliers, who traveled to the Demons Den for the previous two seasons only to lose to the host off the first two rounds of the Upper State bracket in the second round each time.Just as Moxie and company easily dispatched of the Spartanburg-area entry in tourneys past, Saturday afternoon’s feature was not as close as the final score would indicate as the Cavaliers forfeited the final four matches after having built up an insurmountable 37-9 cushion with four matches still left on the table.The move by Dorman (17-3) head coach Chad Singleton was one in which his counterpart would have done given similar circumstances. Dorman has just one day off before returning to the mat to take on top-ranked Rock Hill in tonight’s third round match.“It (stinks), but if I was them, I would have done the same thing,” Moxie said of forfeiting out with the outcome no longer in doubt.
