BEMIDJI – While they were forced again to forfeit at the 195 and 220 weight classes against Moorhead, Bemidji was able to compete at the heavier weights against St. Cloud Tech.

The Lumberjacks defeated St. Cloud Tech 40-23 but lost to the Spuds 38-26 in their triangular meet Friday night at BHS.

But in both classes, they lost.

Jacob Smith was pinned by St. Cloud Tech’s Michael Mangle in 3:48 at 195, and Bemidji’s Wyatt Yoemanns was shut out in a 15-0 decision by Noah Voigt.

Despite a poor showing in the two classes, Bemidji pulled off a 40-23 win in the meet.

Against Moorhead, however, only Al Johnson would compete at the upper end of the weight spectrum.

And he did so in quick fashion. Johnson pinned Moorhead’s Brendan Edner at 1:50 in the heavyweight class – his second win in three chances at the weight since Thursday night.
