EDDYVILLE — Second-ranked (1A) Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont returned to the mat at home on Saturday, winning four duals on the day to earn its own home tournament title. The Rockets beat Des Moines East (50-27), Newton (42-30), North Mahaska (60-12). Iowa Valley (54-21) and Waukee (49-30).

The Rockets and East battled back and forth as the two teams were tied at 27-27 heading into the final four matches. Tyler Foubert clinched a 23-8 tech fall in the opening minute of the third period to give EBF the lead back before Bret Wursta and Dillon Pigsley’s back-to-back falls clinched a closing 25-point run for the Rockets.

Another late run helped EBF rally from a 12-point deficit against Newton. Falls by Foubert, Cody Brown and Tucker Black highlighted a run of 27-straight points to rally the Rockets after Newton opened 27-15 lead midway through the dual.

EBF scored the final 28 points against Waukee, rallying after a 30-point run gave the Warriors a 30-21 lead. Black and Foubert followed up an opening-minute pin by Blake Marolf to seal the win.

Griffin Molenburg scored the only win in a match for North Mahaska against EBF. The Warhawks’ 113-pound grappler pinned Tanner Rea in the second period to help the Warhawks get as close as 18-12 against the Rockets.

EBF's other win over a South Iowa Cedar League foe came much easier as the Rockets scored falls in the first five matches against Iowa Valley to open a insurmountable lead. Foubert set the tone early as the former SICL grappler at Tri-County/Montezuma pinned Iowa Valley's Jayson Krakow in 15 seconds in the 160-pound opener.

No. 2 (1A) EBF (12-1) next wrestles at TCM tonight.

No. 3 (2A) Albia wins Lincoln Duals

DES MOINES — Third-ranked (2A) Albia maintained an unbeaten dual record by earning five wins at the Des Moines Lincoln Dual Tournament on Saturday. The Blue Demons beat Des Moines Roosevelt (61-15), Sioux City West (72-12), Bondurant-Farrar (58-16), Des Moines North/Hoover (55-24) and earned a 44-27 victory in the finals over Atlantic in a dual that featured a highly-anticipated meeting at 126 pounds.

The long day of wrestling culminated with a "main-event" style contest as Shadow Leshen, Albia’s top-ranked 126-pound senior, took on 2A’s second-ranked 120-pounder Darrien Schwenke of Atlantic. Both wrestlers, who also beat third-ranked (2A) Bondurant-Farrar wrestler Caleb Coleman during the day, competed in a very aggressive finale won by Leshen 10-4 to clinch Albia’s 5-0 day as a team.

“It was a great match to end the day. Both wrestlers fought off many deep attacks and ended up with several exciting scramble situations,” Albia head wrestling coach Dave Wenger said. “Overall, we had a great day. We really enjoy the team concept that dual team tournaments offer us. There is much more strategy involved in duals as compared to the traditional individual tournaments that we go to.

“I was proud of the way our guys reacted when they were faced with adversity. Those will be the matches that will make us tougher both individually and as a team as the season presses on.”

No. 3 (2A) Albia, now 13-0 in duals this season, is back in action at the Marshalltown Invitational on Saturday at 9 a.m.
