Team takes 3rd in ‘duals’

MENOMINEE – Saturday’s Menominee “Super Duals” ended the unbeaten streak of the Manistique Emerald wrestling team.

Finishing third, the Emeralds were defeated by the Norway Knights 54-14, who walked off with the top spot, as well as runnerup Green Bay Preble East, who fell just short finishing 51-18.

In their quest for victory, the Emeralds defeated Iron Mountain 33-21, Kingsford 54-22 and Menominee 34-27.

The Gonzalez brothers, Mat, Zavier and Cole went undefeated for the day.

The fight to place came down to the last match of the day for the green and white. A pin by Dalton Carll (119) at 1:22 of the first round secured the third place finish for the Emeralds.

Manistique travels to downstate Fife Lake this weekend.
