The Focus Band item gives you a 10% chance of holding on with 1HP. (This is different to the Focus Sash which only works if you had full HP when hit.)

So what happened is the band activated on the first hit, and also on the second hit. It's a small chance (1/100) but it's possible.

that's like a move with 99 accuracy missing
