Wilson went in to this game undefeated in league play and Poly was coming off their worst losing streak in 15 years, actually, their only losing streak in 15 years. They had not lost a league game since 1994, that is, until two weeks ago when they lost to Lakewood… then last week they lost to Millikan. So, if the headline is Poly defeats Wilson.. OR.. Wilson loses to Poly – either way, Wilson failed to take advantage of Poly’s worst season in memory. See more pictures>>
