KERKHOVEN — Willmar opened its duals portion of the schedule Tuesday by roughing up BOLD 68-9 and outlasting Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg 32-24 at a triangular hosted by the Saints.

The Cardinals won 12 of 14 matches in their opener with BOLD before closing with an exciting victory over KMS.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve beat them (KMS),” said Willmar co-head coach Ed Oehlers. “We got a lot of big victories and a lot of our guys who lost wrestled well.”

Colten Carlson, who finished second at last season’s state meet as a freshman, collected a major decision and a pin to pick up his 99th and 100th career wins. Also winning twice for Willmar was Juan Resendez at 120, Logan Walkow at 132, Austin Miley at 138, Augustine Hahn at 195 and Leon Richards at heavyweight.

KMS, behind five pins, upended BOLD 63-9 in the evening’s first match.

Willmar hosts the nine-team Cardinal Classic on Friday starting at 4 p.m. Area teams scheduled to appear are KMS, Benson, Minnewaska and YME.
