Knight Wrestlers Finish Season As Section Runner Ups Against OTC

This would be the second time this season the two faced off with the Knights winning the first match 36-25. OTC jumped out to a very quick lead of 20-3 winning five of the first six matches. By the time the dual reached 170 lbs., the Bulldogs were out in front 27-9. Spindler, Larkin, Wyatt Olson and Nibbe went on a late tirad scoring two falls and a pair of decisions evening the score at 27 all, setting up an all important heavyweight match. Unfortunately for the Knights, their hopes for four section titles in a row were dashed at the hands of RJ Ehlert. The Bulldogs would take a decision in the final match and win the dual 30-27. Spindler’s pin was the 100th of his career.

The Knights will travel next to Pelican Rapids Saturday, February 24th competing in the Section 6A Individual Tournament. Champions and runners-up will earn a trip to the XCEL Energy Center in St. Paul for a chance at the state tournament.
