PHOENIXVILLE — Amidst the atmosphere surrounding the 50-year golden anniversary of Phoenixville wrestling, Perkiomen Valley’s wrestlers still remained focus on the business at hand Friday evening.
The visiting Vikings won 10 of 14 bouts, including five by fall, to down the Phantoms, 48-18, in a Pioneer Athletic Conference match.
