The Osseo wrestling team will face fourth seeded Mounds View in the Section 5AAA quarter-finals Saturday, Feb. 15, at Maple Grove High School at 11:30 a.m.
The Mustangs topped the Orioles two weeks ago 37-22, although there is reason for optimism for the locals. Osseo had lost their regular season dual with Mounds View last year before turning the tables in the section tournament to advance to the 2013 championship final.
“The section is wide open this year and really there for the taking,” said Osseo head coach Alan Wiley. “We’re not expecting any cake walks on Saturday, in fact we should an underdog all day but I believe we have a shot.”
Rogers is the top seed and will face the Park Center-Irondale winner. Second seeded Centennial will meet No. 7 Spring Lake Park/St. Anthony and No. 3 Maple Grove squares off with No. 6 Champlin Park, also in the 11:30 a.m. quarter-final round. The semi-finals are scheduled for 1 p.m. and the championship final is at 3 p.m.
