Wolverines' comeback ousts Eagles from sections


Prior to New York Mills' semifinal section 6A wrestling match with Wadena-Deer Creek, Head Coach Eric Niemi stated the Eagles needed to come out and get off to a good start.

They did, jumping out to a 15-0 lead thanks to pins from Andrew Perala and Shane Novak. Tommy Selander started off the match with a 11-4 decision.

The two teams met up in early February, with the Wolverines coming out on top, 36-30.

"It's the second time around; we know what's coming," Niemi said.
