The Brookside Cardinal wrestlers had a busy week. On Thursday they had to travel to Keystone for a double dual to wrestle Black River and Firelands. This was the first conference double dual and the Cardinals were eager to make their mark. First match was vs the Pirates which went quick due to weight classes not matching up and Black River having a short roster. Shawn Moore and Alex Toth were the only wrestlers with Shawn coming away with a Win on a decision. Toth came up short with a solid effort but could not pull it off. Final score was Brookside 45 and Black River 18. Next up was the Firelands Falcons and similar to the last match, weight classes did not match up and numbers were low for Firelands. Andrew Joanoch, Shawn Moore, Alex Toth, and Collin Thompson were the wrestlers for this dual. Janoch set the tone with a pin, Moore lost in a close match, Toth came up with a big pin, and Thompson ended the match with a pin as well.
