HVL wrestling win streak barely kept intact, 31-30
• by Randy Carlsen
Coach Jamie Heidt knew the KoMets would have their hands full against Kenyon-Wanamingo (#3 in A) Thursday night following a strong showing by the Knights in The Clash National Wrestling Duals in Rochester. They also had six wrestlers ranked in the top 10.
The match was all that it had been billed up to be as the KoMets extended their HVL win streak to 71 with a 30-29 win. The teams tied 29-29, but K-M had the advantage of winning eight of the 14 matches to give them an extra point on criteria.
Coach Heidt said the team wrestled well, but added that there is always room for improvement. Heidt said it was a great win for the kids and, "The winning streak means a lot to us."
As expected the Knights jumped out to the early lead as number one ranked Ethan Cota (106) won by tech fall over Robby Horsman 15-0. Early on that tech fall rather than a fall would prove to be important as the match progressed.
Keaten Schorr (113) made it a 5-4 match when he won a major decision 9-0 over Tyler Ryan. Garsen Schorr (120) lost by fall and Dalton Andrist (126) lost a close one 4-2 to Bradley Kish. At this point the Knights led 14-4.
According to the K-M coach Elijah Wilcox's win (132) was a big one. He won 4-2 in overtime over Matthew Houglum. Patrick Kennedy bumped up to 138 and pulled off a 3-1 win and Ethan Shea (145) followed with a 4-1 decision. Brady Berge then pinned Mason Stevens at 3:18 of the second period to give K-M a lead they would not relinquish.
