Badgers wrap up solid season with loss to eventual Section 3AA champion Fairmont/MCW
The Redwood-River Valley wrestlers capped off a strong season with a 54-18 loss to eventual Section 3AA champion Fairmont/MCW Saturday afternoon in Marshall.
The Badgers (18-12) upset Montevideo UNITED in the quarterfinals before losing to the Red Bulls (24-0) who went on to crush Marshall for the Section title.
The Red Bulls proved too strong in the lower weights, jumping out to a 54-0 lead before the Badgers finished with three straight wins. Adam Bommersbach got the Badgers on the board with a second period fall at 195. Kaleb Haase needed just 50 seconds to pick up a pin at 220 and Chad Maddock won by fall at Heavyweight.
Maverick Goblirsch lost an 11-5 decision at 126 and Tayte Harazin fell to Miles Fitzgerald 8-3 at 145 pounds in a potential Section 3AA championship showdown.
The Badgers will now gear up for Section 3A Individual Tournament action that gets underwy on Friday in Dawson and wraps up Saturday. Harazin (38-7), Haase (220) and Maddock (Hwt.) should all be top three seeds with Haase a potential one seed.
Devin Johnson (29-11), Omar Arredondo (24-10) and Owen Bertram (27-12) will be top five seeds.
