“Brawl for the Belt”

Monroe Woodbury 39 Minisink Valley 34

Photo by Bill Dimmit

The Crusaders from Monroe Woodbury have won the innagural “Brawl for the Belt”…this one definitely lived up to it’s hype!  The dual was decided on the final match of the evening when MW’s Marco Vespa decisioned MV’s Tyler Lynch in sudden victory! The energy in the gymnasium at Minisink Valley was palpable all night and it came to head prior to the final match of the evening pitting the two state qualifiers against each other.  Minisink won 8 of the 15 matches but it was Monroe who was able to pick up the necessary bonus points and notched a 39-34 win!  There were no losers last night – just two great programs laying it on the line! Great job by both teams!  This event has provided Section 9 wrestling with a much needed “shot in the arm”…Hopefully there will me many more duals like this in the future! Go S9!!!
