Week 7 Results

Wow! What an amazing dual meet!

The Panthers defeated their rivals for the first time in 6 years with an exciting come-from-behind victory in the last match.

In the first dual, the Panthers took on the Wickliffe Blue Devils and easily won 60-15. Wickliffe forfeited many weights and had no chance in the match.

In the second dual, which was the headliner, Euclid took on the host VASJ Vikings. We had not defeated them for 6 years. The match started poorly with the home team winning the first three matches and taking a 12-0 lead. It was a back and forth battle the rest of the way out and we fought to a 36-33 lead going into the last match.
(If VASJ won the next match by a decision, they would tie, or if they won by a major decision or pin, they would win the match)

Junior Jacob Perpar stepped up in a big way and won his match by a technical fall, 15 point victory, to bring home a 41-33 team victory.

Great Job wrestlers!
