David Henritzy (112 pounds), Thomas Leffler (120) and Dennis Haldeman (127) also gain pins before the Bombers get on the scoreboard with Bill Horn's decision win. Other Lehighton falls come from Len Searfoss (138), Terry Woginrich (145), Russell Neal (154), Lee Siglin (165), Dennis Ahner (180) and Raymond Heiser (Hwt).
