On Thursday the Mat Men won 42- 22 over Osakis and dropped a heartbreaker to Parkers Prairie 36 - 33. Highlights vs. WCA: We were only able to win five matches and were not able to match WCA with falls.

Rudnick took an 11 - 8 lead late in the third period when he gave up a reversal and a two point near fall to lose a 13 - 1 ! deci- sion. Heavyweight Keith Haggerty bat- tied a much bigger Dylan Soberg. Haggerty was able to get off his back three times and wrestled into the sec- ond period against a very good wrestler. The big difference in the match was that we would not get pins and they could. Highlights VS CACGB: Our 51 points were the most we have scored m a win this season. CACGB- had a number of open weights due to injuries that hurt them in our match. As a team we won nine of the thirteen matches. At 125 Dustin Roggenbuck turned in a great performance.

We had to forfeit at 119 to Peter Fiskness. At 125 David Webster wrestled his best match of his young career. David picked up his frst varsity fall with a Dairy Queen special over On3' Trisco in 1:29. This turned out to be a very big win for us due to the fact that our regular 125 Iber was sick. Webster did a great job getting us six after we had to forfeit at 119. At 130 Jon Karels won by forfeit. At 1351bs Osakis moved away form Joe Karels and he also won by forfeit.
