Stuhl used three takedowns and a four-point near-fall to build 13-2 lead before claiming the pin late in the second period.

Top-ranked 184-pounder Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann (SR, Loyal, Wis./Marshfield HS) extended his winning streak to 19 straight matches, moving to 22-1 on the season with a 19-1, 5:00 technical fall of Michael Loger.
