The only other decision of the night came at 125 pounds, where Mills' Maison Roberts beat B-H/V's Kasey Horn, 12-5.

B-H/V's 12 points came on two forfeits, both going to ranked wrestlers: No. 3 (160) Jake Braaten at 152 pounds, and No. 8 (189) Amos Schmidt at 171 pounds. Mills also had three wins by forfeit at 135, 140 and 145 pounds.
