CENTRAL VALLEY — On Friday, Jan. 26, at Monroe-Woodbury High School, the Crusaders hosted the Tigers of Kingston in a OCIAA Division 1 league match.

The match started at 99 lbs. weight class where the Crusaders won by forfeit but the Tigers tied the score when they recorded a pin at 106 lbs.

That's when the Crusaders took over the match and won the next seven bouts in a row.
