Thursday, January 25, 2018 by Scott Pagel spagel@tnonline.com in Sports

The Eastern Pennsylvania Conference made their pairings official on Wednesday night for the EPC Championship Wrestling Day, which is set for Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Easton Area Middle School.

Round 1 begins at 1:30 p.m. and features three matches: 17th – Pleasant Valley vs. Central Catholic; 15th – PM West vs. Dieruff and 13th – ES North vs. Allen.

Round 2 begins at 3:15 p.m. and also features three matches: 11th – Emmaus vs. PM East; 9th – Whitehall vs. Freedom and 7th – Stroudsburg vs. Parkland.

Round 3 begins at 5 p.m. and will feature two matches: 5th – Northampton vs. ES South and 3rd – Liberty vs. Easton.

It should be noted that Easton won a three-way tiebreaker of point differential of tied teams. ES South and Parkland were tied, so head to head broke that tie, ES South over Parkland.

The day will conclude with Round 4 at 7 p.m. and feature Bethlehem Catholic vs. Nazareth in the EPC championship match.

Introductions will take place before the championship match. Championship awards will take place after the championship match.

Admission: adults $6, students $3 and senior citizens $3.
