Mary Beaman photo Matt Martin, wrestling at the 152 pound weight class for Cape, pins his Dover opponent in the University of Delaware's Bob Carpenter complex. Viking wrestling coach f'mds bright spots in lopsided loss By Mary Beaman "We are definitely a young team and we had three starters out with illness and injuries," said Viking wrestling coach Chris Mattioni about his team's recent rout by Dover's Senators, 52-18, this past Monday night, Dec. 22 at the University of Delaware Bob Carpenter Center. Seven of the initial eight weight classes were manned by first-year varsity grapplers. "This was the first varsity match ever for some of these wrestlers and I saw them trying to do things they had learned in prac- tice," Mattioni said while trying to put the loss into a positive light. At the onset, it looked like Dover would skunk Cape until the Senators crashed in to the first of three Viking brick walls. The first Cape wall, Matt Martin, at 152, man-handled his oppo- nent at will until finally pinning him at the 1:30 mark in the first period. Dover, after a brief respite, ran into its second mortared complex personified by one Theron Pavlik. Wrestling at 189, Pavlik out-muscled his rival eventually putting his opponent's back to the mat in the second pe- riod at the time of 2:34. Cape High's nationally ranked cleanup man Matt Graviet, wrestling at heavyweight, was the final ma- sonry barrier that Dover had to endure. Graviet wasted no time in flattening his foe at 1:18 in the final period. Cape's wrestlers are idle for the remainder of the two-week holiday break. The team opens its home schedule on Friday, Jan. 9, against Laurel.
