The No. 8 Owings Mills Eagles remained perfect on the 2010-2011 season, Thursday, beating the Pikesville Panthers, 64-9.

“The team wrestled really tough and they wrestled for each other.  One thing we always try to build with this team is a family thing,” Owings Mills coach Guy Pritzker said.  “If one of our kids is wrestling, you can see the whole team is into the match.  

“That makes a difference when the whole team is into each kid’s match.  We don’t have individuals, we have a team.”

Owings Mills used an array of falls and other big wins as a team to down the school that sits less than 10 miles away, winning all but three of the bouts on the night.

The Eagles worked eight falls in the 11 matches they won, but not all of the fins came as easily as they wished.

Russell Barnes was in and out of criteria himself before working his fall at the heavyweight position, while Demetrius Johnson was more than dominant in his fall at 135, securing a technical fall had he not decked his opponent.

Kenny Nunez (215) and Barnes were part of a string of pins to open the match, following a dual-meet opening fall by Chris Seip at 189, and Andrew Dardick (112), Zach Shapiro (125), Taran Carr (152), Larry Johnson (160) and Mohammed Ali (171) all recorded pins in the night.

winBrandon Hoffman was the only winning Eagle to not win by fall, but still earned bonus points in his 12-2 major decision at 140.  Warren Mack was also forfeited to at 119.

Pikesville had three wrestlers earn wins on the night, as Zack Shackelford (103) held on to a 6-4 decision, Tevon Wright (130) rolled a five-point reversal in the third for a 5-0 win, and Kion Wright took a 10-7 decision at 145.

The win was more than just another in-county victory; it notched the Eagles 14 consecutive win on their unblemished season.

“At the beginning of the year, I knew we were going to have a decent team.  I didn’t think the team was going to come together as good as they have,” Pritzker said.  “They have come together great.  They are friends, and that makes a difference.”

Owings Mills will put its undefeated record on the line when it faces Franklin, Jan. 11, and Pikesville will look to bounce back from its most recent loss in the Loch Raven Duals this weekend.
