College wrestling: Bluejays fight uphill battle in Moorhead

Just three wrestlers competed for the Bluejays on the day, including 141-pounder Mike Tanner, 157-pounder Jared Nickman and 174-pounder Ben Goodman.

Tanner finished 0-2 on the day with losses to MSU-M’s Angel Vega and Northern State’s Ian Muirhead. Both were pins. Nickman lost by 6-2 decision to Sean Havlovic of Northern and to Rochester Community College’s Jon Grevengoed by pin.

Goodman lost his first match of the day by injury default. Getting Goodman back on track and cleaning up a few things will be the task at hand for the Bluejays as the season continues, head coach Bob Purcell said.

“We have to tighten up some things and finish better. We also have to get Ben healed up,” Purcell said. “We’re going to get better. We just need to get healthy again.”
