ST. PAUL — For the second year in a row, the Moorhead Spuds yanked the consolation hardware away from the Willmar Cardinals at the Class AAA state wrestling meet.

Each team won seven matches Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center, but the difference was in bonus points in the 30-26 victory for the Section 8AAA champs. No. 7-ranked Willmar was favored as the fifth seed while the Spuds were one of the three unseeded teams.
