The Northwestern Tigers defeated the Cumberland Beavers 45-28 Thursday night in Cumberland.
Matt Richards (189) and Travis Kauther (285) pinned their opponents for the Tigers.
“We had another nice team effort,” NHS coach Bob Coleman said. “Matt really set the pace for us. We moved him up from 171 to 189 and he came up with big pin. Then Ryan (Miesbauer) kept things rolling for us with a decision at 215 and Travis came up with a big pin against Bryce Arnes, who placed at Northern Badger earlier this season.”
Also for the Tigers, Miesbauer, Nathan Nelson, Wes Snow and William Pedersen won decisions and Dave Snow, Rick Carter and Jake Levine won forfeits.
“Nathan, Wes and William did a very good job from their feet to defeat their opponents to help extend our lead,” Coleman said. “These guys have done a great job pulling together and supporting one another.”
The Tigers, 4-2 in the HON, host a quad at 4 p.m. today.
