Only three matches were wrestled on the mat and Johnsonburg won them all, picking up a pinfall and two decisions.
âSafetyâ is believed to be the underlying reason Kane coach Dave Kiehl pulled the Kane High girls basketball team off the court to forfeit its game Tuesday evening at Brockway.

Last month the Kane boys basketball team traveled to Brockway and was blown out, 63-33.
Kane hosted Brockway in its next-to-the-last game Tuesday and lost by just five points, 43-38.
It was another in a series of narrow defeats for the Wolves.
"We have to find a way to win these close games," second-year Kane coach Matt Gasbarre said after the slim loss. "We need to learn from this."
The Kane Varsity Competition Cheerleaders added to their great finishes this season with defending their titles at Champion Cheer Central Hard Rockinâ Nationals in Cleveland this past Sunday.

Kane outscored Port 14-10 in the third quarter, but never came closer than one point in the second half.
"We had opportunities to chisel away at their lead," second-year Kane Coach Matt Gasbarre said after the game. "We're having growing pains. We need to learn how to win the close games."

The hosts went on to post a 43-25 victory.
