New York Mills got a bit of home cooking last week as the Eagles hosted eighth ranked United North Central on Tuesday night and United Clay Becker and Frazee in a triangular on Thursday. 

This week the Eagles will travel to Bertha-Hewitt-Verndale-Parkers Prairie for a triangular against the Raiders and Long Prairie-Grey Eagle-Browerville in their only action on the mat for the week.

NY Mills hosted eighth ranked United North Central in a dual on Tuesday night. The match was originally scheduled as a triangular, but sixth ranked West Central Area canceled due to inclement weather. 

The Eagles ultimately fell to the Warriors by a score of 57-6. 

The Warriors won the opening nine matches of the night, due in large part to three open weights from 120 to 132 lbs. for NY Mills.

Blake Unger got the Eagles on the scoreboard as he secured a 10-4 win at 170 lbs. Bren Salo followed with a 7-1 decision over Shawn Hendrickson at 182 lbs. to give the Eagles their only two decisions of the night. 

In a match up between two of the top ranked wrestlers in the state, Ethan Hendrickson bumped up a weight class to take on Dane Niemi at 152 lbs. Hendrickson is the third ranked wrestler at 145 lbs. and Niemi is the fifth ranked wrestler at 152 lbs. Unfortunately, Hendrickson was able to secure a 5-0 decision over Niemi to give the Warriors 3 team points in the tightly contested match up. 

Simon Snyder also dropped a close match up at 145 lbs. when he fell to Hank Tellers in overtime by a 7-5 decision.

NY Mills hosted United Clay Becker and Frazee in a triangular on Thursday night. The night took on an extra special meaning as the team honored its senior wrestlers and cheerleaders for senior night. 

In a dual that came down to the final match of the night, the Eagles fell to Frazee by a score of 32-25. The Hornets led 26-25 heading into the heavyweight match when Xander Kohler was able to secure a first period pin over Sawyer Wedde to give Frazee the win on the scoreboard.

Austin Geiser and Slade Doll got the Eagles on the scoreboard when they secured a 7-0 decision at 113 lbs. and an 18-4 major decision at 120 lbs. The Hornets tied the match at 7-7 with a major decision at 126 lbs., before Jay Mindermann put the Eagles back in front with a hard-fought 2-0 decision over Brady Borah of Frazee at 132 lbs.

The two teams continued to trade decisions with Frazee securing a 3-0 decision at 138 lbs. and Simon Snyder picking up a tough 3-1 decision over Tyler Moe at 145 lbs. 

The Hornets went on a bit of a run from there as they won the next four matches by pin, two decisions and a major decision to take a 26-13 lead heading into the 195 lbs. weight class. That’s when Braeden Peterson and Bren Salo picked up back-to-back pins, each in the second period, to make the score 26-25 heading into the heavyweight match. Unfortunately, the Hornets did just enough to come out on top and hand the Eagles a loss. 

In their other match, NY Mills defeated United Clay Becker by a score of 46-24.
