<strong>SMITHFIELD—</strong> It was Senior Night at Sky View, and the Bobcats celebrated in a big way, as they held on for a 34-33 win over valley-rival Logan after falling to the Grizzlies two times previously this season.
The match came down to the final pair as Sky View’s Anthony Munoz and the Grizzlies’ Logan Harrison battled it out for the win. With the Bobcats leading, Harrison needed either a pin or a win by major decision to put Logan on top.
Needing at least an eight-point victory, Harrison jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first round. Munoz battled back though, and had his best meeting of the season with Harrison as he earned two reversal points in the third round. Munoz lost his match 7-2, but his effort allowed the Grizzlies to pick up only three points – ensuring a Sky View victory.
