These wins helped SVE take a 27-21 lead until the Mustangs tied the score at 27-27 from a pinfall at 138.
SVE, 12-0 overall, also beat Somerset 66-18 and the JV All-Stars 72-4 in pool competition before the finals.
Spring Valley/Elmwood will wrestle in a pair of dual meets this week, at St. Croix Central on Tuesday and at home vs. Mondovi on Thursday before next Saturday's BRC/D-SC Wrestling Jamboree in River Falls.
