The Monett wrestling Cubs dropped a hard fought dual to the visiting Seneca Indians 35-32 Thursday night.
"To beat a team like Seneca we needed to score bonus points and not give any up," said Monett coach Daryl Bradley. "That was the difference in the match. They got bonus points for four pins, even though we had more match victories.
"I'm very disappointed that we didn't get this win," continued Bradley. "They have some good individuals, but so do we. We need to use this loss as motivation to get better."
