Jake Long wins Class A quarterfinal match in another nailbiter, 3-1 over B-B-E's Cole Tensen - Cody Blehr wins consolation match 7-2
West Central Area's Jake Long (41-1) advanced to the Class A semi-finals for the second year in a row, after defeating Cole Tensen of Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa in a 3-1 decision.
Long will face Alex Cooling (34-6) of Madelia/Truman/Martin Luther in the semi-final round, which begins at 6pm on Friday night.
Still alive in the consolations, tonight Jon Pikop and Cody Blehr will try to stay alive in wrestleback matches.
Update on Friday morning...**Cody Blehr won 7-2 over Dylan Young of Mille Lacs in his wrestleback match. Jon Pikop lost an incredibly tight match by a 10-9 score against Sean Huls of Pierz.
So the Knights have Blehr and Long still vying for state hardware on Day 3 of the state tournament, a pretty good showing in my opinion.
Border West individual summary:
Gus McCarthy won an exciting 3-2 decision in the 103-pound quarterfinals.
Mitch Andrews lost by fall (5:47) in the 112-pound quarterfinals.
Will McCarthy won a 10-4 decision in the 119-pound quarterfinals.
