Jacob Hamilton lost a close 3-2 decision to Andrew Moore at 86 pounds and Spencer Chadwick (94) lost a major decision to Landon Albright. The Generals' Seth Huskins received a forfeit at 100 and Evan Wingrove made it four straight wins for Heritage after a major decision against Levi Ledford at 108.
But the Mustangs would rally as Garrett Dunn pinned at 115 and Chesley Williams scored a major decision against Victor Johnson at 123. Mali Davis got a pin at 130 and Carson Carpenter scored a forfeit at 140 to add to the Mustangs' lead.
