Crusaders defeat Tigers 37-20 - Louisiana Classic seeds can be finalized
January 14th, 2015 | Written by: Editor

At a packed Holy Cross gymnasium Wednesday night wrestlers from the two best teams in Louisiana met for the first time all year.  At stake were not only team bragging rights but also several seeding spots at this weekend's Louisiana Classic (LACL)in Baton Rouge.  To no one's great surprise the Brother Martin Crusaders extended their now over two-year-old dual meet unbeaten streak with a 37-20 victory.  The Tigers, though, got their licks in and know well that just a few points here and there may have cost them the match.  The matches at 120 lbs., 126 lbs. and 145 lbs. were all won by three points or less by the Crusaders.  Had they gone in the Tigers' favor, Holy Cross would have won 29-28.

A summary of the matches is presented below.  An in depth article with photographs will be available later.
