Bucs hand Wolverines 40-19 loss
The Border West Buccaneers won nine of 14 matches Tuesday in handing the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines their first loss of 2010.
The Wolverines got victories from Mitch Steffens at 119, Jared Wegscheid at 135, Aaron Uselman at 160, Isaac Lustila at 171 and Dylan Anderson at 215.
Wegscheid earned the 97th victory of his prep career the hard way by going into triple overtime before decisioning Austin Gray 5-1. Both wrestlers fought off takedown attempts to force the match into three overtimes. Uselman grabbed an 8-0 lead over Garret Behrens at 160 and then held on for an 8-5 win. Lustila gave the Wolverines a back-to-back victory by defeating Charlie Maanum on a major at 171.
"We lost too many close matches," WDC head coach Norm Gallant said. Gallant thought that Derrick Rude and Jake Ludovissie had good shots at winning before late mistakes cost them at 145 and 152..
