On Wednesday evening in Liguori Fieldhouse, the Thunderwolves of Niagara County Community College defeat the Saints 22-21.
Before the event began, the Saints took some time to acknowledge and honor with a round of applause in gratitude of any veteran in attendance in honor of Veterans day this Friday.
Once the event got underway the Saints held their own against a quality NCCC. "We wrestled really tough tonight", says head coach Aaron Cooper. "There was to quit in our guys at any point. The result was a totaly team effort, so I am pleased with their performance this early in the season versus a really good Niagara".
