The Montana State University-Northern wrestlers are once again on the road, but things have not gone as originally planned for all involved.
While the Lights defeated Missouri Valley College 37-10, the other dual meet Northern was scheduled to compete in against Embry Riddle University was canceled. The Las Vegas tournament committee had an error in scheduling and could not find the time to reschedule the dual. Coach Ray is trying to find a time that will work for both teams to reschedule.
The Lights are slated to wrestle today and Saturday at the Las Vegas Invitational.
The following are the results from Northern's dual with Missouri Valley College, highlighted by Emmett Willson defeating the third-ranked wrestler at 197 pounds. Willson is presently ranked eighth. Northern improves to 4-0 in dual meets.
