Late Pin Not Enough for ‘Tonna Wrestlers
Owatonna senior wrestler Abe Stockwell, in addition to the team bench, was pumped after pinning his opponent to pull the Huskies into a 32-32 tie with Watertown-Mayer Friday night. After several minutes however, the mode among the Huskies dipped as the Royals earned the win on criteria. It took a discussion at the scorer's table to determine the winner.
Each team won seven matches. Each team had three pins. Watertown-Mayer had a tech fall win and OHS did not, giving the Royals the win and leaving the Huskies with a split on the night. Owatonna beat Mankato West 70-12 to open the night's tri.
OHS seventh-grader Trey Hiatt and junior Landen Johnson also won by fall. Junior Kanin Hable won by major decision. Sophomore Cael Robb just missed a tech fall in a battle of top-ten ranked competitors, but won by major decision. Junior Jacob Reinardy and senior Kaden Nelson won decisions.
The Huskies got wins by pin from Hiatt, Robb, junior Jake Gronli, senior Owen Thorn, sophomore Mason Klemmensen, Reinardy, Johnson, Nelson, and sophomore Drew Kretlow versus the Scarlets. Owatonna (5-3) hosts Lakeville North and Mankato East Thursday, January 28.
The Owatonna girls hockey team added a contest with Rochester John Marshall/Century Friday night after having their game against Mayo postponed Thursday. The Huskies rolled to a 7-1 win behind a hat trick from Samantha Bogen. She also added an assist. Anna Herzog (2 goals-1 assist), Olivia Herzog (1g-2a), and Sarah Snitker (3a) each had a three point night. The Huskies play at Mankato East Saturday at 2 pm with coverage on Kat Kountry 105 FM.
