Wrestling: Ellsworth opens with MBC victory
Ellsworth won eight of the first 10 matches against Amery on Thursday on its way to a season-opening 46-23 Middle Border Conference victory.
Matthew Peterson, Derek Koller, Sawyer Strom and Sam Stuhl all came away with victories to begin the dual. Peterson managed a 6-4 decision, while the three others all won by fall.
Cole Skelton picked up a pin at 138 pounds, which was sandwiched between two Amery technical falls. Anders Lantz, Dalton George and Tristen Mueller then ran off threw more wins from 152 to 170, with the last two coming by way of falls.
Jacob Sigler’s major decision at 195 was the last win for the Panthers, who will get right back at it on Saturday with a home invitational with Prescott, Cadott, Lake City, Spring Valley, Unity, Sparta and Dover-Eyota.
