The Redskins then rallied from a 30-22 deficit to upend the Elida Bulldogs, 40-33, giving Elida its first WBL loss of the season after a 6-0 start.

Wapakoneta's Cal Miller recorded a pin in the penultimate bout against Elida, giving his team a one-point lead, 34-33, before Dylan Plaugher secured the victory with a pin.

The Redskins are 5-0 in the WBL.
