Wrestling: Perham dominates Ottertail Central Triangular
The Perham wrestling team started off the New Year with a pair of blowout victories at the Ottertail Central Triangular Tuesday.
The Yellowjackets defeated Osakis 50-16 and host Ottertail Central 57-12.
Osakis broke out to a 7-0 lead on a decision by Trenton Coyer over Sam Pirrotta 4-2 at 113 pounds and a 106-pound victory by Brendon Coyer over Elliot Werner 4-2.
Brandon Lueders got Perham on the board with a pin of Ryan Engfer at 2:26 to make the score 7-6 and the Yellowjackets would not trail the rest of the match thanks to three consecutive forfeits and domination at the heavier weights.
William Parks won by technical fall, 17-2, over Austin Sunder at 170 pounds.
Cody Nylander and Jesse Hein each pinned their opponent to put a stamp on the win.
Werner and Pirrotta got on track against Ottertail Central putting Perham up early 9-0 after Werner pinned Sam Naddy at 1:29 and Pirrotta took a 5-3 decision over Dylan Schwartz.
Chase Curtis, Josh Werner, Andrew Moberg, William Parks, Garrett Biegler and Hein all recorded wins by fall in the blowout victory.
Hein's pin was done in 21 seconds.
The results send Perham into the Barrel O' Fun Invitational with plenty of momentum.
Weigh-ins begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, with matches to begin on three mats at 10:30 a.m. in the gymnasium at Prairie Wind Middle School.
Championship matches are tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m.
