The Southern Door Eagles wrestling team did not disappoint its alumni and the rest of the home crowd as they dismantled the visiting Oconto Blue Devils last night 48-21 in a match heard on 104.1 WRLU.
The evening started at 170 pounds with the Blue Devils and the Eagles trading pins. Seth Suess (170), Tory Jandrin (195), and Mason Davis (220) registered the falls for the Eagles, while the Blue Devils countered with pins by Bryce O’Connor and Mason Camps. Ben Kielar (106) and Fischer Pawelski (113) picked up forfeits before River Pawelski (132) got a first-period pin over Austin Ratajczyk. After a hard fought match had Ben Hoida (138) losing to Tyler Wusterbarth 3-1, the Eagles would not lose another match with Jared Conard (145, 5-4 DEC), Raul Lopez (152, 10-5 DEC), and Michael Bertrand (160, FFT) picking up points.
Next up for the Eagles is a tournament this weekend at Cedar Grove-Belgium. The next Southern Door Wrestling broadcast with Tim Kowols and Greg Letter takes place next Thursday at Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol in a match that could put the Eagles in the driver’s seat for another conference championship and be heard on 104.1 WRLU.
