Senior Azalkhan Sarvalov was one of six Manchester Central wrestlers who won two matches and helped Central win Saturday's Queen City Wrestling Tournament for the fifth consecutive season.

The event, which was held at Manchester Memorial High School, featured wrestlers from Central, Memorial and West.

Central beat West 47-24 and defeated Memorial 52-21. Memorial beat West 36-30.

Sarvalov, who won the Division I championship at 145 pounds last season, collected his 99th career victory by beating Memorial's Tyler Cambell 7-0. He'll go for his 100th victory Wednesday at Nashua North.

"His agility is off the charts, and pound for pound he has to be one of the strongest kids in the state," Central coach Jason Cumming said. "Winning this tournament is a big thing. It's bragging rights in the city and it's a huge confidence boost heading into the second half of the season."

Sarvalov raised his record to 21-0 this season by beating Campbell, who won his weight class at the Salem Blue Devil Tournament earlier this season. Campbell was also a finalist at the Bow Holiday Tournament, and the only Memorial wrestler to place and the Lowell (Mass.) Holiday Tournament.

Ali Alarjay (106), Kyle Peterson (152), Gino Otero (160), Keaton Peterson (170/182) and Ibragim Arsakhanov (182) were the other Central wresters who were undefeated.

Memorial had four wrestlers who went 2-0: Clay Legault (heavyweight); Justin L'Heureux (220); Samantha Edwards (172); and Devin Johnson (120). Avery Portinari, who wrestled at the 113-pound class, was the only West wrestler who won twice.
