Clayson Mele opened the dual for the Dragons, battling Northern State’s Landen Fischer. Mele scored two takedowns and four escapes, but was unable to collect two takedowns to pull even with Fischer. The sophomore fell in the match 12-8.

Hunter Hayes got MSUM its first victory of the dual at 141 pounds thanks to four takedowns and an escape. Hayes collected over two minutes of riding time to put together a 10-1 major decision victory over Robert Coyle.
