“There were a couple bright spots this week, but overall we are looking forward to getting everyone healthy and come out of the winter break firing on all cylinders again,” commented Osseo coach Alan Wiley.

Earlier in the week Osseo lost a home meet to No. 11 Lakeville North 63-12.

The featured match against Lakeville North took place at 152 pounds where Osseo’s third-rated junior Carson Brolsma moved up to face the Panther’s senior Colton Pasvogel, rated fourth in the state at 152.  Brolsma remained undefeated with a decisive takedown in the opening seconds of overtime to win 5-3.

Sophomore Tony Aitkin scored a late takedown in another dramatic finish to earn a one point victory at 145.  Also winning for the Orioles was freshman Nicholas Carline at 106.

The Droegemueller Cup returns to Maple Grove after the Orioles have had the honors since their win over the Crimson last season.  The annual dual between the two schools is in memory of the late Osseo coaching legend Ken Droegemueller.

Orioles Notes:  Brolsma has extended his unbeaten record to 18-0 and may have broken new ground in Osseo mat history by wrestling four different weight classes within a week, from 145 to 170 pounds.
