D2 #9 Goodrich def. Holly, 32-27
A battle between two Greater Flint area teams proved to be a great one as the Martians pulled out a five-point victory.  The dual had several prominent matchups with the teams splitting bouts featuring ranked wrestlers.  Holly is just outside the top ten in D2 and we realistically could see this dual again at Team Regionals with much more on the line.
Notable Match Results
119 - Caleb Teague (Goodrich) fall Nathan Young (Holly) 1:33
189 - Cade Dallwitz (Holly) dec. Juwan Vines (Goodrich) 5-2
215 - Honour Kline (Goodrich) dec. Collin Dallwitz (Holly) 5-2
285 - Blake Querio (Holly) dec. Blake Coffell (Goodrich) 3-1 SV

D1 #4 Brighton def. D1 #9 Clarkston, 51-12
There's been no easy day for Clarkston so far, who has already taken on three of the top five teams in Division 1 in addition to wrestling in the Oakland County tournament.  It was all Brighton in this one though as the Dogs cruised to a win.  Brighton now prepares for their biggest test of the year, DCC, on Friday.
Notable Match Results
119 - Ben Manly (Brighton) dec. Cole Wiegers (Clarkston) 3-1
145 - Dane Donabedian (Brighton) dec. Houston Hemingsen (Clarkston) 6-1
285 - Colby Ford (Brighton) fall Rocco Spindler (Clarkston)

D4 #4 Pine River def. Petoskey, 45-22
Moving north, Pine River took on Petoskey in a dual that really didn't have any team ranking implications but did include some solid matchups and surprising results.  In the end, the firepower of Pine River proved to be just too much for the Northmen.
Notable Match Results
135 - Eero Gross (Petoskey) dec. Jacob Roberts (Pine River) 8-5
152 - Brock Nelson (Pine River) dec. Lucas Buerkel (Petoskey) 3-1
189 - Tim Rizor (Pine River) dec. Jaylin Mitchell (Petoskey) 5-2

D4 #8 Addison def. Sand Creek, 39-18
The rare in-season assembly dual went down between these two Lenawee County rivals.  Addison took six of the ten contested bouts and picked up a 21 point win, but the Aggies certainly had a few individuals with great performances.
Notable Match Results
160 - Hunter Dart (Addison) dec. Carson Scroggie (Sand Creek) 3-1
189 - Donovan Underwood (Addison) dec. Nolan Pickles (Sand Creek) 10-1
285 - Tony Greenman (Sand Creek) dec. Luke Yackee (Addison) 3-1

Comstock Park def. Belding, 48-21
Team Region 23-3 is one of the most wide open of any region in any division.  These two teams will see each other at Team Districts but they each have a legitimate shot of advancing to Kalamazoo.  In this meeting, Belding cut the deficit to nine with five matches remaining but CP went on to win four of those five bouts.
Notable Match Results
135 - Zion Taylor (Comstock Park) dec. Thomas Doran (Belding) 9-7
160 - Tyler Smith (Belding) fall Nick Brill (Comstock Park) 3:57
189 - Mitchell Ward (Belding) dec. Adam Armock (Comstock Park) 7-1
