Despite the outcome, the first two matchups of the night were highly competitive. Starting at 106, Louisville’s Dylan Rhoads staved off being pinned late to earn a 5-3 decision over Lake’s Dominic Altman. In the 113 match, the Leopards Dominic Hoffarth led for most of the match, but two third period take downs by the Blue Streaks Thomas Cassetty tied the score at 5-5 with 10 seconds remaining. Cassetty earned the 7-5 decision with a takedown in sudden victory.

Dan Adams (120) earned a 10-2 major decision and the next five Leopards won by fall. Brenden Severs (160) also earned a 9-2 decision and Noah Peterson (182) shutout the opposition for a 6-0 decision.
