CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 19, December 25, 1997 - 77 Go .rma.n, Pavlik win titles at Milford Invitational; several Cape wrestlers place By Mary Beaman 'q'hree Cape wrestlers make fi- nals at tourney" read last week's wrestling headline. This time "A Repeat," best. describes the Viking' s finish at Milford High School's two-day Invitational Tournament, held Dec. 12 and 13. The 0nly twist to this story is that Cape's threesome found some measure of Success along with a happier ending. Straughn Gorman, 112, contin- ued his winning ways and would not be denied on this outing. After executing a late third-period re- versal, followed by a near fall dur- ing the waning seconds of the semifinal match, Gorman turned a 5-3 deficit into an 8-5 decision against his William Penn oppo- nent, Harry Kettner. Then Gor- man, scoring early in the finals with a takedown followed by back points, nursed his lead into a 5-2 victory for the championship over his A.I. Dupont adversary, Brett Groves. Theron Pavlik, 189, was on cruise control in the early round until he met his counterpart, Nansemond River (Va.) High School's Derrick Hill, during the semifinal round event. Pavlik, be- hind in points deep in the third pe- riod, and in the top position, snatched victory with a three- point near fall, winning 9-7. It was a different situation, however, during the finals as Pavlik con- trolled the entire match from the outset, topping his opponent Brad Simpers from Delcastle High 14-6 for the first-place finish.

Team captain Matt Martin, 152, lost a heartbreaker in the finals. Martin, leading by one point in the last 30 seconds of the match, al- lowed his rivalT Bill Pressley from Smyrna, to escape and score the winning takedown. Martin lost the duel 8-6. Cape advanced only one wrestler into the consolation fi- nals. Zac Sieber, 103, after losing a close decision to his Sussex Central opponent, James Leyh, in the semifinals, wrestled back con- vincingly to gain entry into the fi- nals to vie for third place. Sieber, however, eventually lost to his Smyrna competitor, Anthony Di- mattia, 8-0. Despite the tempo- rary loss of its team anchor, heavyweight Matt Graviet, from an ankle injury, the Vikings over- all had a respectable showing at the tournament. Powerhouse William Penn High School ad- vanced seven into the finals. Cape, Smyrna, Sussex Central and Dover each had three finalists, while Milford High placed one.
