Hughson had forfeited three matches and was looking at a Trans-Valley League loss Thursday night unless it could turn things around.
The Huskies did just that, winning the next four matches by pin for a 48-33 victory over host Mariposa. Andrew Costa (119 pounds), Ricky Salazar (125), David Pimentel (130) and Franky Bettencourt (135) sparked the Huskies' (2-0 TVL) comeback.
