The flu bug forced the South Hagerstown wrestling team to postpone its city showdown with North Hagerstown almost two weeks.
Eleven days later, the Rebels couldn't shake a case of the Mondays.
North lost only one bout -- the final contest of the evening -- and scored nine pins as it rolled past South 73-6 to clinch at least a share of the MVAL Piedmont title. The match was rescheduled from Jan. 24.
"The boys gave it everything they had," said Rebels coach Ralph Stottlemyer. "They were just outmatched."
North 125-pounder Adrian Rivas opened the match with a 15-0 tech fall of Nick Buonocore and Kevin Mothershed followed with a 13-3 major decision at 130 to give North a 9-0 lead. De'lon Agee was well on his way to a tech fall at 135 before scoring a third-period pin of Jake Carder.
Joe Breehl scored a major decision at 140 and Jim Eichelberger took a forfeit at 145 to give North a 25-0 lead. From there the Hubs (12-6) reeled off eight straight pins -- seven in the first period -- and had the match clinched after Dan Mazzei's fall at 171.
