It was an entertaining night of wrestling at the Mills Sports Center on Friday night. The Eagles, themselves on the edge of the Class A rankings, hosted three teams hungry to pick up early season wins at a quadrangle meet.

Mills opened the quad against No. 10-A Badger/Greenbush-Middle River. The Eagles put up a good fight through the first half of the match, but lost the final seven matches in a 54-18 loss.

The match opened with Mills' No. 1 ranked Shane Novak taking on No. 2 Isaac Novacek of B/G-MR. Novak put up a good fight, but Novacek held on to a 3-2 win.

A pin by Tommy Selander, followed by a forfeit gave Mills a 12-3 lead. B/G-MR won the next three, but Jordan Novak, ranked No. 3 at 140, picked up a pin to make the score 21-18.

Mills' Jarrod Norton and No. 6-A Cole Christianson had the match of the night at 215 pounds. Norton fought off his back early in the first, then nearly picked up a pin of his own at the end of the first period. He fell behind 10-7 after two periods and fought back in the third before falling short, 13-12.

The night wouldn't get any easier in the eagles next match against D-G-F. The Rebels are ranked just ahead of NY Mills in The Guillotine's "Lean and Mean" in Class A.

A back and forth match found Mills needing a pair of pins to earn a tie-break victory. They would get just what they needed as Norton and heavyweight Landyn Saewert, ranked No. 5 to open the season, pinned their opponents.

With the final scored tied, 37-37, the Eagles were awarded the win by tie-break criteria.

Selander had a key win early against D-G-F, beating No. 8-A Chad Johnson at 112 pounds, 4-0.

In the night's final match, Mills took on Staples-Motley. The Cardinals moved up a class this year and open the season in the Class AA "Lean and Mean".

After building a big lead with the lower weights, NY Mills couldn't hang on as they lost to the Cards, 42-28.

The Eagles won five of the first seven weights and led 25-12. But S-M won the next six in a row before Saewert ended the match with a 6-3 win at heavyweight.

Mills will remain at home for their next match, a dual against Park Rapids on Dec. 15 starting at 7:15 p.m.
