WADENA -- The top seeds played out as expected at the Section 6A wrestling tournament.

Top-seeded Barnesville defeated No. 2 Border West handily 49-17 for back-to-back titles and a return trip to the state tournament at the end of the month.

Border West built a 44-12 lead on No. 3 New York Mills and held on for the 44-36 victory, despite the Eagles recording five pins in the final seven semifianl matches.

Neither team had much difficulty in the quarterfinals. The Eagles defeated No. 6 Ottertail Central 41-22. Border West took out No. 7 West Central Area 50-29.

Down 32-12, New York Mills got pins from Kacee Skoog, Sam Erckenbrack, Noah Pesola, Tyler Patron and Max Carlson down the stretch to total 36 points.

Austin Maanum and Nick Stafford had back-to-back pins at 170 and 160 pounds, respectively, which clinched the match for Border West.

The Eagles lost six of seven matches to start, getting their lone victory from defending state champion Shane Novak - a 3:15 pin of Bryce Nilson at 126 pounds.

Novak will look to advance to the state tournament in this coming weekend's individual tournament.
