ZAGREB, Croatia -- Two years after having to settle for World bronze medal, Macey Kilty dominated in the 69 kg finals to claim a Cadet World title in the final bout of women's competition of the Cadet World Championships in Zagreb, Croatia, on Friday night.

"I just really wanted to win," Kilty said. "I didn't really focus on the outcome. It was more of taking it one match at a time and scoring points."

Taking on two-time Cadet European medalist Julia Fridlund of Sweden, Kilty used her go-behinds as her main weapon, scoring two of her three takedowns on a go-behind.

Kilty regrouped after trailing 2-2 on criteria at the break but put up two takedowns and was awarded one on a caution from Fridlund for an eventual 7-3 win.
