David Williams, a District 30 champ, won an 11-3 major decision against District 31 placer Tiawahn Cosby at 182.

Vineland won six straight weights from 106-138 with back-to-back pins from Daniel Detetta and Zach Nealis at 120 and 126, respectively.

Vineland won its other two matches in the quad with wins against Mainland Regional and Middle Township.

Vineland's Steven Bergamo, who sat out the first 30 days of the season after transferring from St. Augustine Prep, won a 14-12 decision against Middle Township's Ronray Harris at 113 pounds in a matchup of District 32 placewinners.

Bergamo is No. 3 in The Press Rankings. Harris is No. 1.

Big day for Cedar Creek

Cedar Creek swept a quad with a Cape-Atlantic League National Conference win against St. Joseph and nonconference wins against Sterling and Overbrook.

Tyshonn Williams (113 pounds), Patt McGinnis (126), Matt Jiampetti (132), Eric Hanusewicz (138/145), Kyle Murrey (152), Bryan Bellace (160), Thomas Rheault (182) and Ben Keating (220) all were a perfect 3-0 for the day.

St. Joseph Region 8 champ and state placewinner Roy Lucas won all three of his matches with pins in the first period.

C.J. LaFragola, a District 32 placer at Holy Spirit last season, won both matches he wrestled.

The Wildcats, who lost to Cedar Creek and Sterling, beat Overbrook 42-40 for their second win of the season.

Tough day for some

Holy Spirit and Pinelands Regional each lost a pair of matches but each had a trio of double-winners.

Brandon Bower had two first-period pins at 138 to improve to 9-0 this season. Joe DiBuonaventura (152) and Daniel Ramirez (160) each won twice.

James Mattina (152), Anthony Blasco (182) and John Campano (285) won both matches they wrestled for Pinelands.

Ocean City takes 2 of 3

Ocean City, which is making a push for a South Jersey Group II playoff berth, won matches with Oakcrest and Gloucester City but lost 37-36 to Pemberton.

Luke Demore (152), Cooper Gallagher (170) and Josh Johnson (220) each won three matches. Johnson, No. 3 at 220 in The Press individual rankings, had three pins.

Prep hosts big quad

Host St. Augustine Prep, No. 6 in The Press Elite, lost 39-22 to No. 5 Clearview Regional but beat No. 7 Shawnee 33-22. The Hermits also beat Pennsville 57-3.

Clearview swept the quad and appears to be the top challenger to two-time defending sectional champ Southern Regional in South Jersey Group IV.
