ON THE MAT VS. PENN COLLEGE
The Builders opened the day with a matchup against the Wildcats of Penn College and opened up with a pair of wins by fall from Jacob Michael (125 lbs/2:30) and Michael Holcomb (141/1:15) as they jumped out to an 18-0 lead.
Penn College won three of the next four bouts to trim the lead to 21-10 after 174 pounds.  From there, the Builders used a Josh Rodriguez major decision win at 197 pounds with a pair of wins by forfeit to take a 37-10 victory.

ON THE MAT VS. PENN STATE DUBOIS
For the first time this year, the Builders trailed in a dual match after losing at 125 pounds.  Thomas Payne got them on the board with a major decision win 18-6 at 133 pounds to trim the deficit to 6-4.  Holcomb followed with a decision win at 141 to get the Builders the lead 7-6.  That helped them win six straight bouts to take a 24-6 lead after a Daniel Henson decision win at 174 pounds.
