The trip south continues today when the Jacks will tangle with Park Center at 9:30 a.m. and Sartell in pool play of a tournament hosted by Buffalo. The Jacks will conclude their day with two more dual meets but the opponents won’t be known until after the pool play matches.

Friday’s split gave Bemidji a 5-2 record in dual meets and BHS coach Rance Bahr was pleased with his team’s performance.

“I think we surprised both St. Francis and Cambridge by beating St. Francis,” Bahr said. “But we didn’t have quite enough horsepower to beat Cambridge.”

Parker Beyer started the Lumberjacks on their way to victory against St. Francis when he collected a pin at 113. Also winning with pins were Brian Maas at 120, Gannon Strain at 160, Brody Wilander at 182, Kade Johnson at 195 and Wyatt Yoemans at 220.

Posting a decision victory for the Jacks was Dylon Sauceda at 132.

Bemidji won four matches against Cambridge and all of them were by pins.

Brian Maas stuck his opponent at 113 as did Sauceda at 132, Nick Peterson at 170 and Johnson at 195.
