HSWR: Battery Creek breezes into 3rd round of playoffs

Battery Creek wrestling continued the momentum coming off its region title and rolled into the third round of the Class 3A dual playoffs with a pair of dominant wins at home Saturday.

The Dolphins nearly pulled off the perfect match in a first-round rout of Lakewood, winning 82-0 with pins in 13 of the 14 weight classes. 

Creek then made quick work of Loris in the second round, using seven pins and three forfeits to cruise to a 63-15 victory. 

Bradley Smith, Aiden Northway, and Hunter Smith each won both matches by pin, while Sam DeGroat, Elmer Linares, Sebastian Sanchez, Ryan Israel, and Nate Gallego each had a pin and a forfeit. Daniel Sunkins was 2-0 with a pin and a decision, and John Coker and Reily Doray each won both of their matches by forfeit.

The Dolphins will travel to Aynor at 6 p.m. Monday for the Lower State semifinals.
