Buxton Redbeards Defend NHSCA National Title

The 2017 NHSCA National Duals concluded yesterday afternoon when the Buxton Redbeards captured the title with a 30-27 victory over the Scorpions. The Redbeards finished the event with a perfect 10-0 record, which included four shutout victories.

The Redbeards started the event on Saturday by posting a perfect 3-0 record in Pool Round 1 as they pitched three straight shutout victories. They repeated that record in Pool Round 2 on Sunday as they dominated 4M, Point Pleasant Wrestling and Triumph Elite.

Their perfect 6-0 record put them into the Championship Rounds on Monday where they continued their dominance by picking up four more victories. They started the day by defeating Quest School of Wrestling 77-3 and followed that up with a 56-9 victory over Team Menace. In the semi-finals they dominated Battlezone Black 60-6.

In the championship match the Redbeards squared off versus the Scorpions who put up the strongest fight of any team that the Redbeards faced all weekend. The Scorpions held tough but came up just short of pulling the upset as the Redbeards hung on for a 30-27 victory to claim their second straight NHSCA National Dual Championship.

It was an impressive and dominating performance by the Redbeards as they pitched four shutouts and only surrendered double-digits one time.
