WILLMAR — Ridgewater won five of the seven contested matches over the Saint John’s University JV team Friday, but the Warriors had to forfeit at three weights, allowing the Johnnies to post a 27-21 win.
Ridgewater’s Adam Sutlief at 125 opened the dual with a pin late in the second period. The Warriors then forfeited at 133 and 141 before getting a pin at 149 from Matt Meyer and back-to-back decisions from Daniel Wiemann at 157 and Zach Revier at 165 to take a short-lived 18-12 lead.
The Johnnies answered with three straight wins to pull ahead: a Ridgewater forfeit at 174, a decision at 184 and a pin at 197.
