The Pierz wrestling team held off United North Central (UNC) with a fall in the final bout, then rolled past host Osakis in a tri meet, Friday.

 

Pierz 38, UNC 28

Pierz took a 32-28 lead into the 285-pound bout against UNC, with junior Curtis Brisk sealing the 38-28 win with a quick fall in 42 seconds.

Senior Brad Meyer and juniors Brandon Sullivan and Jordon Goebel also earned falls for the Pioneers.

Junior Evan Woitalla and eighth-grader Brandon Ortman provided bonus points with identical 12-3 major decisions, senior Travis Johnson won 8-4 at 195 and eighth-grader Brett Kapsner earned a 3-2 decision over UNC’s ninth-ranked senior Max Pajari at 145.

 

Pierz 54, Osakis 24

Osakis took the first two bouts to go ahead 9-0, but a string of seven consecutive victories by Pierz followed as the Pioneers cruised to a 54-24 victory.

Sullivan, Woitalla, Johnson, Brad Meyer and sophomore Cody Meyer all earned falls for Pierz, with freshman Kolton Eischens winning by default and Kapsner, Goebel and Brisk receiving forfeits.

Pierz returns to the mat at the Little Falls quad, Jan. 4.
