Leading by a slim two points, 24-22, after the first eight weight classes, Punxsy could not hold on for the win.

Hollidaysburg’s middleweights propelled the home team to the match win, 51-30, with four wins in a row and five of the final six bouts.

“It’s tough going into a match giving up two forfeits and we had Brandon Wingert out,” noted Punxsy coach Eric Eddy.
