Wagoner halts LG's streak

LOCUST GROVE, OK — Locust Grove’s nine-dual winning-streak came to a halt Thursday night after losing to Class 4A No. 6 Wagoner, 45-29, to drop to 9-2 in front of their home crowd.

The Class 3A No. 5 Pirates dropped their first four matches. Freshman Jaden Kelly was pinned at 106 pounds and Locust gave up a forfeit at 113 pounds.

Senior state runner-up Braden Bennett fell to Wagoner’s Jory Brummett, 5-4, at 120 pounds to make the score 15-0 in the Bulldogs' favor. Bennett, in his first match of the season at 120, nearly tied Brummett with an escape with 18 seconds remaining in the bout, but couldn’t get his foot loose.

Junior Jacob Niederbuhl fell to Wagoner’s Miller at 126 pounds before the Pirates finally found the scoreboard at 132 pounds. A forfeit to two-time state champion Cub Yeager shortened Locust’s deficit to 21-6.

Locust didn’t win another match until sophomore Trevor Taylor scored a pin in the first period at 182 pounds to cut into the large deficit. Taylor began a four-match streak for the Pirates, which ended the dual. Locust Grove’s Trent Monk (195) and Trey Loveall (285) both pinned their opponents and junior Dustin Remer claimed a 22-6 technical fall at 220 pounds.

The Bulldogs improved to 6-1 on the season.
