Instead of wrestling in the second round of the dual state tournament, the Havelock Rams had to watch it on their home mat.

Havelock lost its final five matches and were knocked out early with a 41-27 loss to Rocky Mount on Tuesday in Havelock.

Rocky Mount, which avenged a two-point loss to the Rams earlier, lost to Swansboro in the second round.

Havelock’s Lamonte Frazier won the first match, at 113 pounds, giving the Rams the lead, but the Gryphons rallied for a 16-15 advantage.

Then the match looked to take a turn in Havelock’s favor when Kevin Garay (160) and John Ellis (170) got back-to-back pins.

“That’s where we were thinking we could stay in it,” Andrews said.

Rocky Mount won by injury default at 182; a decision at 195; a major decision at 220; and forfeits at 285 and 106.
