Little Falls opened the dual with three narrow decisions, then closed with three pins to defeat host Sauk Rapids-Rice (SRR) 44-22, Thursday.

Seventh-grader Leo Wilczek and senior Gregory Ross started the dual with back-to-back 5-4 decisions, then freshman Justin Jenks prevailed 11-9 in overtime.

A pin by eighth-grader Josh Beack made it 21-0 before the Storm got on the board, then junior Austin Olson received a forfeit and senior Connor Scherping earned a 15-0 technical fall to make it 26-3.

The Storm took the next four bouts to close the deficit to 26-22 after the 182-pound bout, but junior Trysten Ross and seniors David Copa and Conor Swanson answered with consecutive falls to clinch the dual for the Flyers.
