Cobras Conquer Crusaders, 28-15

HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Coker Cobras picked up a 28-15 win over Belmont Abbey in their final home dual match of the season on Tuesday (Jan. 21) night. The win gives the Cobras a 6-4 record in dual matches this season.

Mikel Nelson got the match started with a thrilling 12-11 come-from-behind victory in the 125-pound division. Nelson found himself behind 7-0 early in the match, but he battled his way back to win the match and give Coker a 3-0 lead.

Charlie Huff, Walker Barfield and Kevin Thompson built on the momentum started by Nelson with back-to-back-to-back pins at the 133-pound, 141-pound and 149-pound divisions. The three pins gave the Cobras a 21-0 lead.

Belmont Abbey bounced back with three decisions and a pin over the next four matches, trimming the Coker lead to just six points, 21-15.

With two matches remaining it was up to Robert Parland and Austin Akins to secure the Coker victory. Parland put the match out of reach with an impressive 4-1 win at the 197-pound division. Akins put the nail in the coffin with a dominating 13-0 major decision at the 285-pound division, giving Coker the 28-15 win.
