Hiting Enter button causes cancel button to fire..,but i want Search button to be fired..

I have two button in Webpage
            <td class="buttonCell" " colspan="5" >      
                              <asp:button id="btnClear" CssClass="button" Text="Clear All" Runat="server"      Width="75px" OnClick="btnClear_Click" CausesValidation="False"></asp:button>
                      <asp:button id="btnSearch" CssClass="defaultbutton" Text="Search" Runat="server" Width="75px" OnClick="btnSearch_Click" AccessKey="S" CausesValidation="False"></asp:button>          

In master page i have this jquery
   jQuery(document).keydown(function (event) {
              if (event.keyCode == 13) {
                  //not working: alert("Enter clicked.");
                  //not working: __doPostBack('__Page', 'EnteryKey');
                  //find default button.
                  var submitButton = jQuery(".defaultbutton").get(0);
                  if (submitButton != null) {

When i hit enter button it trigger Cancel_clik event ,not search_click.
If i change the order it works find .Due to some CSS and layout issues ,i dont want to change the order.
Can any one help me .
