Ty Lorentzen

Oskaloosa's Ty Lorentzen picked up a pin against DCG

OSKALOOSA — With impending weather coming on Friday, the wrestling mats were rolled out early for what would be the first of three varsity events in Oskaloosa on Thursday. The Indian wrestling team would get things started as they hosted a very tough Dallas Center-Grimes squad and would fall 60-9.

Most of the night was in favor of the Mustangs with Oskaloosa only able to grab two victories in the contest with DCG bringing along four ranked wrestlers.

Oskaloosa’s first victory of the night came at 138 pounds with Phillip Abrahamson. He found himself trailing to DCG’s Ethan Riesselman 5-0 after the first period thanks to a takedown and three-point near fall. Abrahamson would cut into the deficit in the second period with a takedown of his own before starting the third period on top. He would use that top control to get a three-point near fall of his own after a struggle to tie it up at 5-5 and send it to overtime. There he would get a hard-earned takedown to win 7-5 in sudden victory and get Osky on the board.

DCG continued to roll until the final match of the duel with Osky’s Ty Lorentzen at 113. Lorentzen was ahead 2-0 after a takedown in the first period. He started the second period on bottom and was able to work a nice reversal into a pin to grab the Indian’s second win of the night in a mostly lopsided duel.

With the loss, Oskaloosa falls to 5-5 on the season in duels.

Oskaloosa will return home and host a triangular against Indianola and Centerville on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
