Two wins!

Canon Swanson battling for the Jaguars at 126 pounds, where he got a pin against Paynesville.

The B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team won two matches in home conference action tonight! They started out by thrashing the Kimball Area Cubs with a final score of 50-16. Paynesville Area also defeated Kimball when those two teams met in the second dual of the night. In the third dual, the Jaguars took on the Bulldogs in a classic border battle match that was not decided until the 195-pound match was complete. Final score: B-B-E 38, Paynesville Area 33.

The Jaguars are now 3-0 overall and in Central Minnesota Conference duals for the season. Their next action is another triangular next Tuesday, December 13 at Albany. The other team involved is Becker. Action begins for B-B-E with the Jaguars taking on Becker at 6:15 p.m.

Ryan Illies (50) pressures this shot by Ortonville in the first half.

In another home contest tonight, the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team lost 68-54 to sub-section rival Ortonville. The Jaguars fared far better offensively tonight against Ortonville than they did in the season opener against Osakis. The improvement was very noticeable and noteworthy. Derek Wiener led the Jaguars with 19 points.

The Trojans, who led 40-27 at halftime, improved to 3-0 with the win. They are 2-0 against very solid Camden Conference competition after beating Lac qui Parle Valley 54-43 the night before their trip to Brooten. Ortonville competes in the Pheasant Conference in basketball and figures to be a factor in that race this season along with Hancock.

Speaking of Hancock, the Owls will be the next opponent for the Jaguars boys' basketball team. Next Tuesday B-B-E travels to Hancock for a non-conference contest.

Tonight's boys' basketball game was aired on 106.5 FM The Train.
