Michael Conner (171)won by technical fall, 17-1, in the second quarter after jumping out to a 12-1 first period lead.

Not to be out done, Ryan Medina (140) picked up his pin 34 seconds into the third and decisive period. Medina led slightly, 9-7, after the first four minutes.

Junior High rolls despite forfeits

The Junior Jays were put behind the eight ball to begin their home dual with numerous of forfeitures, but pulled out a 42-29 win.

With five forfeits and 30 points (Taft was deducted one point) given to their opponent, Guthrie needed seven wins. However, those seven wins all needed to be pins. No problem. Thats exactly what they did to pick up the home win.
