Wednesday's win was their first victory over Owen J. Roberts in a league match since 2008.
Krauss earned a takedown with 13 seconds remaining to pull out a 5-4 win over Jimmy Frantantoni to give Spring-Ford its first lead, 6-3.
"This was one that we had circled on our calendar. We wanted to beat this team," Krauss said. "I think that win put us in a good position."
A major decision by Taylor Westlake (170) followed, and Danny Krieble pinned Nick Duliakas at 182. Mason Romano (220) got a technical fall, and the rout was on.
"We have a good nucleus of kids that have wrestled together for a long time," Spring-Ford coach Tim Seislove said. "We had 20 wins last year, and we only lost two seniors, so we thought if we had things fall into place, we could have a good year."
The Wildcats (4-5, 2-2) had won 36 consecutive conference matchups spanning parts of five seasons before losing to Boyertown, 45-16, last week. They hadn't suffered a league defeat before that since 2010.
Now, it appears as if Spring-Ford and Boyertown, the only other unbeaten teams in the league, will battle for supremacy. The teams meet later this month. About midway through the match, several Boyertown wrestlers walked into the gym and glanced at the scoreboard.
This one may have been over already, but the season has a long way to go.
