MOORHEAD, Minn. — MSU Moorhead wrestling dropped an NSIC dual to the 11th-ranked Mary Marauders on Friday evening inside Nemzek Fieldhouse. The Marauders won 41-0.
Mary trotted out three top-15 ranked wrestlers against the Dragons this evening as the Marauders took home victories at every weight class. Samuel Grove had three escapes in his loss to 12th-ranked Matthew Kaylor. Clayson Mele had two takedowns in his 125-pound bout against Mary’s Jaden Verhagen.
