Bombard and LaBelle unbeaten at Mounds View Duals for NB
Mounds View Duals
The Vikings wrestled in the Mounds View Duals on Saturday, January 11 and match results became available just a few days ago. The Vikings, fielding just five wrestlers, lost all four duals – to Blaine, Eastview, Maple Grove and Orono. But the focus all year has been on getting individual wrestlers ready for the section tournament. Brandt Bombard (138) and Ashton LaBelle (145) both had a good tournament, each finishing 4-0 in their individual matches. In the closest match of the day, LaBelle decisioned Mason Enderlin of Eastview 1-0.
138 Brandt Bombard 4-0
145 Ashton LaBelle 4-0
152 Austin Sonnek 2-2
182 Sam Sonnek 2-2
220 Caleb Norwig 2-2
St. Francis Triangular
The Vikings lost duals to both Becker and St. Francis last Thursday night and scored points in just two matches in each dual. Against Becker, Gage Krech (120) decisioned Ryan Boecker 7-5 and Austin Sonnek (152) pinned John Stangler. Josh Logan (132) decisioned Aydan Carlson 6-3 and Brandt Bombard (138) pinned Ben Hallin in just 42 seconds. Against Becker, Bombard wrestled Lukas Paulson and lost a 5-2 decision. Paulson is ranked third in the state at 138 pounds, while Bombard is ranked eighth.
The Vikings were supposed to be in two tournaments this past weekend, but because of the weather neither one took place. The North Branch Invitational, scheduled for last Friday, was cancelled. And the St. Croix Lutheran Invitational, scheduled for last Saturday, was postponed and rescheduled for Saturday, February 1.
The Vikings will host Chisago Lakes tonight starting at 6 p.m. at North Branch High School. On Saturday, they will head up to Grand Rapids for an invitational tournament that starts at 9:30 a.m. And in a rare Wednesday night event, the Vikings will welcome Big Lake to North Branch for a dual that will get going at 6 p.m.
