A city rival wrestling dual went down on Thursday, January 25 between Fossil Ridge High School and Fort Collins High School. For the Sabercats, this was the last crosstown rival dual and they were determined to grab their first win against a city rival.

The dual started at the weight class of 152 pounds, Austin Yeager won by pin in 28 seconds. The next two matches the Sabercats won by forfeit; Jackson Holloway for the weight class of 160 pounds and Jason Brockway for the weight class of 170 pounds. Fossil took their fourth win after Nathan Meyer pinned his opponent in a minute and 15 seconds for the 182 pound weights class. Following the double back-to-back wins, the Sabercats lead the Lambkins 24-0.

Fossil took their first loss of the night as Ian Sampson was defeated by Tech Fall 18-2 for the weight class of 195 pounds. The dual moved to the 220 pounds where Nick Sanchez also lost 3-4. The Sabercats continued to hold the lead 24-10 after Fossil forfeited in HWT, ending the heavyweight matches.

Marshall Scott wrestles for the 106 pounds weight class but could not wrestle due to a skin condition and not passing the health inspection so the Sabercats’ lead got slimmer; 24-20.
