NYM Wrestling: Eagles pick up two wins at triangular

The Eagle wrestlers closed out 2009 with a pair of wins at their home triangular Tuesday at the Mills Sports Center.

New York Mills had five pins and three wins by forfeit in the first eight matches as they beat Parkers Prairie, 51-21.

Freshman Noah Pesola was the only Eagle wrestler to win a match not decided by a pin. He had an 11-5 win at 160 pounds. Andrew Perala, Tommy Selander, Josh Bernu, Kyle Vorderbruggen and Jordan Novak all had wins by fall for Mills.

In the other match of the triangular, Pelican Rapids had four forfeits and New York Mills had five pins in a 61-18 win.

Tyler Ehnert had a 16-7 win at 119 pounds and Pesola won 13-8 at 160. Picking up pins were: Bernu, Jordan Novak, Peter Stark, Kacee Skoog and Landyn Saewert.

Head coach Eric Niemi likes to break the season into three parts: Before Christmas, After Christmas and Sections. They finish their "first" season 4-2 in dual matches with fourth and fifth place finishes at invitational tournaments.

"Closing out our first season with two wins at home is the way we needed to finish," Niemi said. "We had some young wrestlers won some big matches for us."

Holiday break

After taking a break from competition over the holiday's, The Eagles will jump back into action in a big way in the New Year as they host No. 4-A Frazee at the Mills Sports Center on Jan. 5.
