MOORHEAD, Minn. — Opening up their home dual schedule at Nemzek Fieldhouse, MSUM wrestling fell to Concordia College 33-10 with the Dragons taking two weight class wins.

MSUM was able to take command of the scoreboard after Clayson Mele picked up six points due to a forfeit win. As the Cobbers took wins at 133, 141 and 149 pounds, the Dragons had an opportunity to jump back into the dual at 157 pounds. A hard-fought effort from Peyton Ringling came down to the final buzzer with Ringling falling by decision 11-9.
