Let's do this, Jaguars!!!!
Tonight's the night!!! The playoffs heat up like they haven't in years for the B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team. Updates will be posted here after 6 p.m. from Holdingford High School.
Final: B-B-E 32, Paynesville 31!!! The semifinal match was insane. The Jaguars shot out to a 17-4 lead after the 132-pound match, where Tyler Bents won a technical fall 19-2. The score tightened up from that point on, with Paynesville getting within one point at 26-25. Then junior Seth Roering went out on the mat guns blazing and won by pin in the first period!!! That sealed it, putting the Jaguars ahead 32-25.
***Next: K-M-S, in the Section 5A championship at 8 o'clock!!!! The defending champion Fighting Saints won 34-33 over Long Prairie-Grey Eagle/Browerville in the other semifinal match.
