PERHAM -- The Bemidji High School wrestling team dominated the day at the Perham Triangular on Tuesday, topping Thief River Falls 52-23 and the host Yellowjackets 55-15.

The match against TRF got off to an electric start, as the first five matches were decided by fall. BHS had the early 24-6 upper hand thanks to pins from Gabriel Morin, Nick Strand, Hunter Heim and Gavin Osborn.

The lead continued to grow from there, which included pins from Dane Jorgensen at 152 pounds and Seth Newby at 170 pounds. Jared Frenzel put a stamp on the match with a heavyweight pin, the Lumberjacks’ seventh of the contest.

Bemidji’s lighter weight classes took care of business against Perham for a smooth-sailing win. The Jacks jumped out to a 43-3 lead against the Yellowjackets before the latter made any sort of dent on the scoreboard.

Bemidji’s run through the match included seven straight BHS wins from 126 pounds to 170 pounds -- good for 32 points -- and Dylan Headbird punctuated the night with a pin in the final eight seconds of the heavyweight bout.


Bemidji returns to the mat with the Brainerd Invite on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 10-11, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Friday.
