Hornets sting Otter wresters

Published 10:56am Wednesday, January 9, 2013

The Fergus Falls wrestlers are still looking for their first team win of 2013 as they fell to visiting Frazee Tuesday evening 51-12.

The Hornets dominated the meet from the start winning the first two matches. The Otters were able t storm back as team leaders Abbot Aho (120 lb.) and Tyler Giza (126 lb.) won the next two matches. Aho defeated Ethan Byer by pin, while Giza topped Grant Jepson 10-3.

Frazee would take control of the meet as the Otters’ Dane Ringquist (152 lb.) recorded the only other win for Fergus in the meet.

Home has not been so sweet for the Otters, but they will look to change that Thursday as they host Central Lakes Conference foe Alexandria. JV action is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. with the varsity meet to follow.

    How is a school the size of FF not be able to field a full team of wrestlers to compete, having to forfeit two matches?
