The Spartans dominated another MVC opponent Thursday evening topping La Crosse Central 60-15. The marquee matchup of the night pitted Central’s Connor Williams (ranked 7th at 152 in D1) and Hayden Krein (ranked 5th at 152 in D2). Krein was leading the match before being reversed to his back in a five point match that was the difference in a 7-4 victory by Williams.
At 220, Keyshawn Stewart picked up his first non-forfeit MVC victory with a 10-5 victory in overtime. As has been the theme this year in duals and tournaments, the Spartans were particularly adept at picking up bonus points. Sparta earned five pins against the Raiders.
