B-C wrestlers come up on short end of pinning contest

In a match where virtually every match was won by a pin or forfeit, the Bloomer-Colfax wrestling team won their first two and last two matches but lost all the rest in between as they fell 60-24 to Chetek-Weyerhaeuser/Prairie Farm Jan. 17.

The match started with 120 pounder Jacob Malinowski of B-C pinning his opponent at 3:41 and Brady Simonson following suit but a little quicker, putting his guy down at 1:35 in the 126 pound match. Leading 12-0, BC dropped the next 10 matches as Austin Sommerfield, Collin Bungartz, Jon Hayton, Trevor Newton, Dan Thorgerson, Cole Anderson-Olson, Matt Shaw, Lassi Karppi, Stephan Snyder and Brennan Arbuckle all went down via the pin route. Justin Wachtendonk and Tucker Hovde tacked on the final B-C points with forfeit wins.
