Bonus points help Redbank top Chucks

January 20, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Redbank Valley's ability to earn major decisions and falls during five of its six victories on the mat helped it down the Punxsy wrestling team Wednesday night, 35-29.

With each team receiving a forfeit, both squads split the remaining 12 bouts, 6-6. During those six victories, Punxsy (6-8) earned three decisions, two major decisions and a fall. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs registered three wins by fall and three by major decision, leading to the six-point difference in their victory.
