It was over in a flash

And bang! Just like that, the home triangular lasted just over two hours flat with the B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team, No. 9-ranked Thief River Falls and BOLD. It had to be one of the shortest triangulars we've seen locally.

B-B-E won 48-30 in their match with Class 2A TRF.

The Jaguars made quick work of the BOLD Warriors in the final dual of the afternoon. The final score was 70-12. The Warriors (4-14) gave up five weights to forfeits at 120, 132, 138, 195 and 220 pounds.

B-B-E raises their record to 17-2 overall. They are 5-0 in the Central Minnesota Conference. The Jaguars complete the CMC schedule at a home triangular next Friday, February 19. The first dual that night features B-B-E taking on Royalton at 5 p.m. If the Jaguars win, they will be sole champions of the CMC for the second year in a row. (They went 6-0 last year in the CMC.)

Getting out quickly isn't all that bad of a thing considering the weather we're facing: the low tonight is predicted to drop to 25 below zero. Ouch!

In other of the top playoff competitors, if not the very best competition, for the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team was handed its first loss of the season today. Top-ranked Nevis lost 55-49 today on their home court to Cass Lake-Bena, who avenged an earlier season 52-48 loss to the Tigers. Nevis is the defending Sub-Section 5A-West champion who beat our Jaguars 61-58 on the last "normal" day of our lives last year...March 11, 2020.

Nevis is 8-1 overall, while CL-B is now 8-2. Both teams are tied for first place in the Northland Conference with 7-1 records.

More to come later.
