Bemidji HS wrestling: Jacks claim two of three matches

The Bemidji High School wrestlers captured fifth place at Saturday's Blaine Invitational, dropping their opener to Rosemount 51-12 but stopping Spring Lake Park 63-11 and Irondale 39-30.

Saturday's victories gave the Lumberjacks a 14-9 dual-meet record. Tuesday they have a chance to collect two more as they head to Fosston to face BCLBI and Bagley-Fosston.

Brian Maas, Craig Maas and Colton Doty earned Bemidji's lone victories against Rosemount. Brian Maas defeated his opponent 7-5 while Craig Maas won 7-2 and Doty collected a pin.

Spring Lake Park didn't provide much opposition as it employed only five wrestlers and forfeited at the other weights.

Earning wins for BHS were Kade Johnson who pinned his foe at 145, Dustin Greenman who won 7-6 at 160 and Brenden Fredrickson who won by a pin at 189.

Bemidji rallied in the late going to upend Irondale as the Lumberjacks captured the final six matches. Nick Maggert's pin victory at 215 broke a 30-30 deadlock and Alex Johnson iced the team triumph with a 3-1 decision at heavyweight.

Earlier in the match Jake Crosby, Kade Johnbson and Dustin Greenman won with pins, Molitor and Fredrickson posted decision wins and Ryle Masterson was awarded a forfeit win.

In Saturday's junior varsity event, Michael Fogarty won the 112-pound division as did Gary Molash at 125 and Josh Dreyer at 152. Claiming seconds were Robert Treuer at 119 and Alex O'Neill at 125.
