The Chattanooga Valley Mat Eagles took advantage of five forfeit wins and scored a 52-29 victory over visiting Lakeview on Monday afternoon.
The Warriors opened the match with Chandler Tisdale scoring a hard-fought overtime win over Mason Ingle at 72 pounds.
Ingle was down 5-2 in the third period, but was awarded a penalty point after Tisdale was whistled for locked hands. Ingle then scored a reversal with two seconds left in the bout to tie the score and force overtime, but after a scramble, Tisdale took Ingle to his back and scored a pin to give Lakeview an early 6-0 lead.
Andrew Chapman (78 pounds) got six points on a forfeit for CVMS, but the Warriors answered as Ryan Tisdale pinned Sam Dickson in the first period of their 86-pound bout, putting Lakeview back in front, 12-6.
However, the Eagles would claim wins in the next seven bouts.
Jarred Meyners (94) won a high-scoring 21-11 major decision over Nick Kepher. Dagon Turner (100) needed just 35 seconds to pin Logan Dunwoody and Levi Millsaps (108) stuck Skyler Simons in 36 seconds to give the Eagles a 22-12 advantage.
Three straight forfeit wins for Jonathan Woodall (115), Markease Ross (123) and Asa Williams (130) added to the lead and Dakota Gann's 25-second pin of Anthony Adkins at 140 pounds gave the Eagles an insurmountable 46-12 lead.
Lakeview would win the next three bouts. Jacob Brown (150) earned a 20-5 technical fall over Jaxon Dowden, Alec Gentry (165) pinned Cade Dunn in 59 seconds and Julian Waters (180) fought through an injury to pin Kyle Brown in 2:50, pulling the Warriors to 46-29.
However, Ethan Morey (220) got the final six points for the Valley on a forfeit and neither team was awarded any points on a double forfeit at 275.
Chattanooga Valley is slated to host LaFayette and Gordon Lee in a tri-match today before taking part in the NGAC Duals at Trion on Saturday.
