Jamestown College won four of the seven contested matches against the University of Mary Tuesday night.
Problem was, they also had three open classes, two of which resulted in forfeits, giving up 12 points. That was the difference as the Marauders came out on top 24-13 in the dual held in Bismarck.
Both teams were open at 141, but the Jimmies also were empty at 197 and heavyweight.
Still, there were positives.
The Jimmies went 4-3 in head-to-head matches against the NCAA Division II Marauders.
Jamestown College got off to a very fast start as Sean Blumhardt returned from injury and dominated Jordan Eckholm. The senior from Ellendale rolled to a 17-4 major decision. Blumhardt did not wrestle last weekend at the Jimmie Open.
Coby Horner, who won three matches at the Jimmie Open on Saturday, followed with a 5-1 victory over Hunter Menendez at 133.
After Mary got its first win at 149, Jaykob Miller and Michael Nord posted consecutive wins by identical 4-2 scores. Miller topped Collin Engelhardt at 157 and Nord doubled up Brock Krumm in the 165-pound affair.
From there Mary got the final four matches, including a pin at 184 from Brady Anderson over Austin Werre in 1 minute and 41 seconds.
The Jimmies fell to 0-3 in duals, while the Marauders won for the second time in seven tries.
Jamestown College heads for Sioux City, Iowa on Saturday for the Briar Cliff Open.
