The Jimmies were competitive at 133, 141 and 149.

Coby Horner’s three points at 133 were the most totaled by any Jimmie, but he came up four short. Eddy Wilson fell 5-1 at 141 and Klinton VanHeuveln (149) dropped a 5-0 decision.

The Dragons got off to a fast start thanks to former South Border standout Blake Bosch. The Wishek native pinned Joey Murillo at 4:33 at 125.

The Jimmies are right back at it Saturday at the Dakota Wesleyan Open in Mitchell, S.D.
