Southern has perfect opening


Lane said the third-period reversal was big, mainly because of the funky style of Sutton. "In a match like that you gotta put guys away. I felt like he hurt himself; I put my legs in and he tried to shake me off and I got the cradle in."

Marks admitted he was "pretty stunned'' when Fort LeBoeuf senior Tyler Harrington took him down in the first period and nearly turned him.

"I almost gave up two back (points) there, but when I got the back points (five in the second period) it turned the tide for me," he said after his 6-4 win. "The one move he tried to roll out and I caught him on his back."

Marks said he was so nervous in the early going that the word "butterflies" doesn't even describe it.

Becker had to gather himself up after the officials took away a first-period takedown.

"I thought I had it, he took a bad shot and I spun behind him and I thought I had both feet on the mat. I was excited but you just have to fight through it."

Becker took bottom for the final overtime period because he said he didn't think Biglerville's Trevor Stover could hold him down and "it worked out for me."

Freshman Friery was trailing 4-3 to Reynolds freshman Seth Hogue when he turned him and got the fall in 4:38.

"I was very nervous until I got the first takedown (in the first period), then I wasn't as nervous," he said.

"I know I am pretty good on top and (when I turned him), I wanted to seal it there," he said. "I do (feel a lot better now)."

Lansberry, who beat Saegertown's Matt Humes 9-0, said he got frustrated by how Humes was wrestling him.
