WRESTLING: Jacks roll over Gators
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School wrestling team was firing on all cylinders Friday night when it hosted Badger/Greenbush-Middle River, stomping the Gators 56-6 in a dual at Bemidji High School.
The Jacks opened the night with wins in the first five bouts. Robby Strand won the 106 matchup via 4-2 decision, followed by a BGMR forfeit at 113. Then Bryce Golden edged Bryce Bergeron by sudden victory (3-1) at 120 pounds, Cale Newby won a 7-5 decision (126) and Joe Hudson pinned his opponent in the 138 bout.
The five wins gave BHS a commanding 21-0 lead, and the Jacks didn’t slow down much thereafter.
After Lumberjacks losses at 138 and 152 sandwiched a Nate Golden 18-2 tech fall victory (145), Bemidji ended the match with six straight wins. Chance Hinrichs pinned Caleb Vacura (4:20) at 160, followed by wins from Nicholas Mutchler (15-9 decision) at 170 and Ryan Yang (fall, 3:41) at 182.
Peter Moen pinned Gators sophomore Jacob Bergsnev in just nine seconds, leading the way for a 6-2 decision win for Hunter Schoenborn (220) and a Kaleb Beam pin in 56 seconds at heavyweight.
