Thompson and Captain lead the Raiders

by Coach Michael Arvidson

It was a busy final week before the Christmas break for BHVPP. A triangular, an invitational, and a quadrangular before an anticipated break. The Raiders have not been in full strength since the opening weekend as injuries and illness have hampered us as of late. We traveled to Frazee on Tuesday, December 14, for a triangular against the 4th ranked Royalton/Upsala squad and the lean & mean host team.

The first dual was going to be tough, but we wrestled well after an inspiring performance from Justin Olson out of the gate. Down 5-0 early, Justin battled back to knock off his ranked opponent with a late takedown. David Revering and Deagen Captain each added major decisions and Reese Thompson dominated his ranked opponent to have the score 18-14 at the midway point. However, the Royals flexed their muscles taking the last seven matches and the dual 54-14.

The nightcap was a tale of two halves. Olson cashed in a pin followed by three straight forfeits. Revering picked up a fall and Captain and Thompson earned a hard-fought decision for the 36-0 lead. . .
