Medford 57, NRHEG 18

The Tigers controlled their dual with the Panthers from start to finish Thursday night.

Medford started the night with a 30-0 run following multiple NRHEG forfeits and wins by fall by John Doe (120) and Kael Neuman (138).

NRHEG's Clay Stenzel appeared to turn around the Panthers' fortunes with a win by fall in the 145-pound weight class; however, the only other victory they would take would come by fall by Ralph Roesler in the 182-pound match.

"It is clear that Medford has been putting some time in, and not just the practices during the season. They are a strong team and they were very impressive," NRHEG coach Shawn Larson said. "We were missing a few people from our lineup, though not enough that we could have changed the outcome tonight. We wrestle them again in two weeks, and hopefully the work that we put in before that can help us close the gap a little."

NRHEG is back in action Tuesday, Feb. 23 when they go up against Bryon. The dual will begin at 6:30 p.m.
