Scott wins two in a row

Waynesburg native Coleman Scott has won his first two matches in the 60kg freestyle competition in the London Olympics.

Scott pinned Georgia's Malkhaz Zarkua in quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals bout. Scott took Zarkua down early in the first bout to seal that win. Scott was warned for a head tap by the referee before the two minutes expired. In the second bout, Scott turned Zarkua and pinned him with about a minute remaining.

Scott captured his first-round match, beating Korea's Lee Seungchul 2-0. Both bouts were scoreless and the female referee warned the wrestlers in each bout for stalling. Scott won the tiebreaker in each period, reversing Seungchui with a nice stepover in the second for the victory.
Scott will wrestle Malkhaz Zarkua of Georgia in the next round. Zarkua defeated Vasyl Fedoryshyn of the Ukraine in the first round.
