Starting the match at 152 pounds, the Raiders won six matches in a row on the mat from 160 pounds through heavyweight and then picked up a forfeit win at 106 pounds to take a commanding 34-3 lead.
That was more than enough to withstand a DuBois advantage in the lower weights, as the Beavers won four of the six bouts between 113 pounds and 145 pounds.
Picking up pins for Brookville (13-2) were Wyatt Griffin at 160 pounds over Gauge Gulvas (2:56), Nathan Taylor at 195 pounds over Ryan White (2:31) and Colby Whitehill at heavyweight over Alex O’Harah (2:18). The Raiders also got a major decision from Tanner LaBenne at 220 pounds where he topped John Pendleton, 12-0.
Additional wins in the upper weights for Brookville included a 12-7 decision by Elliot Park over Garrett Starr at 170 pounds and a 3-1 sudden victory win for Braden MacBeth over Eric Schneider at 182 pounds.
The lone DuBois win the match’s first eight weight classes came on the first bout of the night at 152 pounds when Dalton Woodrow topped Jacob Cable, 1-0.
But after surrendering a forfeit to Owen Reinsel at 106 pounds, the Beavers (11-1) hit their stride winning four of the next five bouts with pins coming from Kam Stevenson at 113 pounds over Josh Popson (1:00), from Chandler Ho over Zack Keihl at 1266 pounds (1:17) and from Ed Scott at 138 pounds over Wyatt Kulik (3:48). DuBois also got a 5-0 decision from Trenton Donahue over Cabe Park at 132 pounds.
Brookville picked up a pair of decisions in the lower weights that helped keep the match in the Raiders favor with Cayden Walker topping Braxton Adams, 4-2, at 120 pounds and Cody Hetrick beating Ryan Gildersleeve, 8-4, at 145 pounds.
