Heading into three “very tough tournaments,” Brandon Valley head coach Kraig Presler and the Lynx were hoping for a better challenge than they received Thursday night at the Lincoln-hosted triangular.
The Lynx certainly had their way with both the host Patriots and the Knights, turning in near perfect performances in both duals. Brandon Valley “put the metal to the floor” in their dominating 75-3 win against Lincoln and 77-0 blanking of O’Gorman.
“Although it is always nice to win, I was hoping for more of a challenge last night,” Presler said the pair of wins. “We have three very tough tournaments, and we will need to wrestle much better in those events to continue our winning ways.”
Presler said the Lynx continue to work well together, and cited Payton Braun and Matt Eigenberg for their move up to the varsity ranks.
“It is great to have people step in on short notice and perform well,” he said.
Braun got both of his wins by technical fall, 17-2 against Lincoln’s Stephen St. Pierre, and 22-6 against O’Gorman’s Tigh Hight.
While Eigenberg received a forfeit against Lincoln, he went right to work in the O’Gorman dual, shouldering Zach White in 1:17.
The Lynx’s only loss of the triangular came at the end of the night, when senior heavyweight Erik Ode lost a 5-2 decision to Brandon Sylasa.
Brandon Valley returns to the Patriot mats this Friday and Saturday for the annual Floyd Farrand Invite, with wrestling starting at 11 a.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday. The team is then on break until Jan. 3, when they travel to Huron for an Eastern South Dakota Conference dual.
