HERSHEY — Line Mountain wrestling coach Chuck Johnson knew his team would have its hands full with District 11 champion Saucon Valley in the first round of the PIAA Team Championships on Thursday.

But he was disappointed that the Eagles kind of let the situation get in their heads. The Eagles (19-3) won just three bouts, all by falls, while falling by a 53-18 decision to the Panthers (18-2), dropping them into an 8 a.m. consolation match today against fellow District 4 team Montoursville (23-2), which lost to Burrell, 46-21. Burrell will wrestle Saucon Valley in the quarterfinals later today.
