NECEDAH — Hillsboro used three pins and four forfeit victories to score a 42–36 dual meet victory at Necedah last Thursday night.

The Tigers (1–2, 1–1 SBC) got pins from senior Logan Rohn at 126, sophomore Nolan Hammer at 145, and junior Sebastion Miller at 160 to pull out the victory.

Hillsboro opened the match with freshman Mitchell Morris picking up a forfeit win at 113.

Rohn’s 48-second pin of Dakota Zingraf cancelled out a Necedah forfeit win at 120.

Hammer’s first-period pin of Shane Torrey tied the dual meet at 18–18 after Necedah picked up a forfeit at 132 and a pin at 138.

After Necedah’s Hunter Olson pinned Tyler Seeley at 152, Miller notched a 46-second pin of Tanner Hutchins to once again tie the match and essentially seal Hillsboro’s team victory.

Necedah took a brief 30–24 lead with a pin at 170, but three straight Cardinal forfeits at 182, 195 and 220 gave Hillsboro the win.

Saturday Hillsboro scored 56 team points and placed 12th out of 14 teams at the Richland Center Invitational.

Senior Max Sebranek earned the team’s top individual finish, a second-place at 182 pounds.

Sophomore Dylan Thew finished sixth at 220 pounds.

The Tigers will return to action Friday at the two-day Bi-State Classic in La Crosse.
