Posted: Updated:

The Mankato EAST COUGARS HOSTED Mankato West and Winona tonight in a wrestling tri–angular at East High...east would square off against west in the final match.

We'll pick it up in the first match of the night at the 106 weight class. It's West's Charlie Dundas and East's Eric Jaster.  Dundas flips Jaster and he would go on for the pin and the Scarlets take an early 6–0 lead.

However here come the Cougars. At 120 it's Colton Clapper for East up against Jason Laven. Clapper will lose his headgear but get the reversal on Laven and at 1:40 he'll get the pin.

Then at 126 it's a battle. But West's Russel Koenigs gets the take down and the fall with this crafty move over Walker Pearson in 4:53.

As expected between the two rivals, there were plenty of close battles, including one at 132 as East's Michael Miller and Tyler Kopp square off.

But in the end Miller and the Cougars were too much for the Scarlets as East goes on for the victory.
