It was a move aimed at taking advantage of some would-be match-ups with the hope of breaking open the current tie between his Golden Hawks and host Panther Creek.
And it paid off.
The strength of the middle weights propelled No. 4 Holly Springs past No. 7 Panther Creek 39-30 in a matchup between two wrestling teams ranked in The News & Observer’s top 15.
“We didn’t have a big enough lead at that point, I believe it was tied up going into
