Concordia had Zach Strait, 100 pounds, and Brent Beaumont, 180 pounds, win all five matches on the day.
Blake Leiszler, 80 pounds, and Rope Dorman, 134 pounds, were each 4-1 for the Panthers.
Timmy Lambert, 95 pounds, was 3-2.
Kyler Caspers, 90 pounds; Keaton Rudolph, 120 pounds; Tryston Jochems, 127 pounds; and Austin Higbee, 265 pounds, finished 2-3.

“This was a big day for wrestling with most of the young men getting five matches, which is the maximum allowed for one day,” Concordia coach Doug Moore said, “Overall, there was a vast improvement from one week ago. We still have a lot of work to do from the bottom position. We were leading many matches only to get turned and pinned. Hopefully, this will improve with experience.”
