WILLMAR - Ridgewater and Northland both won two competitive matches, but the visiting Pioneers from Thief River Falls gave the Warriors 30 points from five forfeits as Ridgewater collected a 39-6 win on Friday in a MCAC dual.

Both teams forfeited the opening 125-pound match before Ridgewater would win the next five matches - three by forfeit - to take a comfortable 27-0 lead.

Kyler Votava at 149 notched a technical fall and Travis Deegan followed with a 13-4 major decision at 157 for the Warriors, who would then capture three of the final five weights from Northland forfeits.
