In the first match the Tigers faced the host team, Paynesville. The Tigers started fast, but the Bulldogs caught momentum in the middle weights where the Tigers are young. The final score was 39-25.

In the second match, the Tigers picked up their first win of the season against Yellow Medicine East. The Tigers wrestled well and finished with two pins for a final score of 51-27.

"It felt good to pick up the first win," said coach Troy Ostby. "We will go into the holiday break on a very big high."

Heavyweight Zach Gibson continues his success on the matt with a pair of victories at Paynesville. He has only lost one match this season and that was to the No. 1 ranked wrestler in Class A.

Freshman Myles Smith also picked up two wins at 125 pounds, as did Joel Harrison at 215.

Evan Nelson won by pin and Tim Ostby won by major decision against Paynesville.

In the Yellow Medicine East match, Connor Metzger won by decision and senior Ryan Beyer won by pin.
