"In a strange dual with so many open weights it was going to take some big wins for us to come out with a team win and the guys rose to the occasion.  To only lose 1 contested match on the night was great and our lose there was tough as I thought Tyler fought hard.  Some big wins are noted by Juan Torres with a big pin against a tough opponent and another big pin by Davion Franklin to seal the win.  Davion has stepped up for his team in some crucial situations knowing the dual was on the line and he has been the man of the hour now a couple times.  In a highlighted match of two top ranked wrestlers #3 Brandon Sorenson wrestled a solid match like he always does and came up with another big win over the #5 ranked wrestler that gave Davion a chance t seal the win for us.  I saw some moments tonight that concerned me with our conditioning so we need to tighten that up before regionals next week.  Overall I was proud of the guys tonight for stepping up knowing we were in whole giving up 3 forfeits and beating a very good NIACC team," Coach Alesch.

Next up is another dual right away Friday Feb 7th at home against Northwestern of Orange City with a 7pm start.
