WILLMAR—An early Hutchinson goal proved to be a bad omen for Willmar on Saturday afternoon.

Hutchinson's Hayden Jensen scored one minute, 17 seconds into the first period, paving the way for the Tigers' 4-1 road victory over the Cardinals at the Willmar Civic Center.

Jensen followed his effort up with another goal short of the five minute mark to take an early 2-0 lead.

Willmar's Braden Bauman brought the Cards back to life with a power play goal in the first period after taking a cross-crease pass from Collin Larabee to make it a 2-1 game.

That was the only thing manufactured offense for the Cardinals, though. Hutchinson's Lane Glaser scored a pair of goals in the second period, including one just 17 seconds after the opening drop of the puck, to give the game the 4-1 scoreline. Gunnar Banks after Glaser's second goal and kept a clean score sheet with 37 saves, but the Cardinals were never able to break through again.

Prep Wrestling

Minnesota Christmas Tournament

Clay and Cael Carlson each took home championships as Willmar finished in seventh place at the 30-team Minnesota Christmas Tournament on Friday and Saturday in Rochester.

The event, sponsored by the University of Minnesota, is often cited as the state tournament without the class system, pitting the top wrestlers from across the state against each other.

Clay Carlson went 6-0 with three pins and a technical fall on the way to taking the 132 pound title. He defeated Anoka's Dylan Droegenmueller in the championship by a 5-1 decision.

Cael Carlson followed his cousin's suit in the 138-pound bracket, going 5-0 with three pins on the way to the championship. He defeated Samuel Stuhl of Ellsworth, Wisconsin by a 4-1 decision for the championship.

Lincoln Shinn came within sight of the 170 pound championship but lost to eventual champion Zach Glazier of Alberta Lea in the semifinals. Shinn didn't let that keep him from taking third place with a 5-1 record, though.

Andrew Reigstad started slow, dropping his first match to Godswill Pepple, but bounced back to go 5-2 and earn a seventh place finish.
