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
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.”
