The 2013-14 Mid-State Conference dual title is in the bag for the Detroit Lakes wrestling team, after they defeated Pequot Lakes/Pine River-Backus Friday.
The Lakers, now 15-6 on the season, added to their win column with a victory over Fosston/Bagley 54-21 last Thursday, while also topping conference teams Wadena-Deer Creek 46-6 and PL/PRB 40-22 Friday in Pine River.
There was a sting of defeat Thursday though, as Thief River Falls trumped DL 35-32 in a close section battle.
The Prowlers pulled off the exciting win in the heavyweight match, with the score tied at 32.
Two Class 2A ranked heavyweights went down to the wire for the match and dual, as No. 8 Chris Kucera of TRF defeated No. 4 James Huwe 4-3.
The dual was controlled early by the Lakers, with pins by Braydon Ortloff and Payton Jackson at 106 and 113, but the Prowlers reeled off the next three matches by a technical fall, pin and a forfeit to take the 17-12 lead.
After a back and forth affair occurring with a win for DL at 138 by Bryant Swiers by technical fall and an 8-1 decision by TRF’s Austin Hjelle at 145, the Lakers won the next two bouts by forfeit, followed by a 6-3 decision by DL’s Jarett Nosal over Jake Brinkman at 170.
Peters Samuelson nipped Cole Hegg 3-2 at 182, while Jake Bohl pinned Tanner Schnathorst at 195.
Tyshayn Brown’s 8-5 decision over DL’s Kirby Siewert pulled the dual to 32-32, setting up the exciting heavyweight bout.
The Lakers started its 54-21 win over Fosston/Bagley with five straight pins, while registering a total of nine in the dual.
DL won nine matches against Pequot Lakes, capped by a pin by Siewert at 220 and a forfeit for Huwe at heavyweight.
The Lakers will visit Class 1A No. 2 ranked Frazee Friday for a 7:30 p.m. start.
