Maravelas defeated Drysdale, 6-2, in the next to last match to draw West Craven withing 36-28 with Davis and Cody Cooke left to settle it all.

Davis pinned Cooke in the second period to give the Rams the 42-28 victory.

“It was huge for our freshmen Chandler Day (106) and Zacharia Drysdale (126) to not get pinned in their losses,” Havelock coach Pat Whitford said. “That was a match points difference of five in our favor.

“Two other freshmen in Timothy Martin and Tanner Stamper-Smith stepped up and got big wins. Our young guys were the difference for us tonight.”

Durham echoed the sentiments of his counterpart regarding the 106- and 126-pound matches.

“That was the difference. Credit the Havelock kids for fighting and not getting pinned,” he said. “Our guys had them on their backs for most of those two matches and just couldn’t finish it.”
