The Orioles turned the tables on Mounds View after the Mustangs had topped the home team 37-22 two week previous, in the final dual of the regular season. Osseo was ahead of Rogers 25-20 following through 160 pounds before the Royal’s seasoned upper weights turned things in their favor.

“It was a nice win over Mounds View but Rogers was just the better team today,” said Osseo head coach Alan Wiley. “Now it’s on to individuals and we’ll see what we can do there.”

Osseo ace Carson Brolsma recorded his 150th win on Saturday for yet another milestone in the junior’s outstanding high school wrestling career.
