Pierre earns pair of victories against Tigers


HURON — The Pierre Governors executed a devastating game plan on the wrestling mats of Huron Arena Friday night, winning duals with the Huron Tiger boys and girls teams.

The Governors won 12 of 14 matches, seven of them by pin-fall as they dominated the Tigers 62-9.

Huron’s 106-pounder Carter Nelson got the match started off right, as the Tiger freshman pulled of a 9-5 decision upset of Pierre’s Gable Uhrig, who came in ranked No. 3 in the state at 106.

Huron’s other win in the dual came from Moses Gross, the top ranked 150-pounder in the state. Gross controlled the match throughout, rolling up considerable points over Brock Moser, before sticking the Governor grappler at the 2:53 mark of the match.

The Pierre Governor girls’ wrestling team flexed their collective muscles, taking a 35-6 win over the Huron Tiger girls.

Six of the seven matches in the dual were decided by pinfall, five by the Governors, who also benefitted from a tech fall.

Huron’s lone win came at 138 pounds, as Kayeleigh Bowden made quick work of Jayda Steinke, putting together a pinning combination and sticking the Governors’ wrestler in 32 seconds.

Both Tiger teams are back in action today, as they participate in the multi-team Groton Invitational.
