In its first three Palomares League matches of the 2018-19 season, the Ayala High School wrestling team won each match by no less than 33 points. 

The Bulldogs, unfortunately, couldn’t keep that streak going Wednesday night, dropping a 48-24 decision to Alta Loma (4-0 in league), which won at least a share of the Palomares League title. Ayala, which fell to 3-1 in league, could secure sole possession of second place Tuesday with its match at Claremont High. Tuesday’s match is set for 6:30 p.m.

Pins by Alta Loma’s J.J. Arroyo, Esteban Ruddy, David Martinez, Zac Martinez, victories on points by Nick Anderson, Brandon Cortina, Tim Walker and Gavin Holland, and forfeits in the 120-pound and heavyweight matches secured Wednesday’s win for the Braves. 

Ayala earned victories by pin from Dominic Jauregui and Daniel Parker and Sean Encarnado and Isaac Alvidrez by forfeit.
