“Throughout the season, there’s certain things you kind of mark on your schedule of goals you want to achieve,” BEA coach Ron Guenot said. “And we achieved them.
“And, obviously, we have some more goals going forward here the next couple weeks.”
After falling behind 16-0, Kurtis Hall set the tone for the Eagles with a fall in 3:09. That sparked a four-match run and three straight pins, with the two other falls coming from Zander Ballock (106) and Cooper Gilham (113).
Shikellamy held a narrow 28-21 lead late in the match. But, once again, the Eagles stepped up in crunch time — as they ended the match with three falls and a win by forfeit.
Other Eagles who wound up with pins were Lucas Holderman (138), Gage McClenahan (152) and Garrett Rigg (160).
