WRESTLING: Seniors help lead Upper Perkiomen past Perk Valley

RED HILL — Seven seniors, four of whom have played key roles for Upper Perkiomen over the years, took to their home mat for the last time Wednesday night.
Six of them came out on top as the Indians knocked off Perkiomen Valley in a Pioneer Athletic Conference match on Senior Night, 45-18.
The Indians (6-2, 15-5 overall), who will head back to the District 1-Class AAA Team Duals on Friday, put together three straight pins followed by a pair of major decisions early to take a commanding lead. Despite that, the Vikings (1-6, 9-9) refused to go down easily in the middle weights as they gave some of the top Upper Perk wrestlers a run for their money.
“It’s tough looking out there and seeing that many (senior) guys,” said Indian coach Tom Hontz. “It happens. We’ll try to rebuild again next year. It was exciting that six seniors were able to get a win tonight.”
