DES MOINES -- Five of six. That's how many Logan-Magnolia wrestlers are moving on to their second rounds in the IHSAA Class 1A Traditional Wrestling Tournament.

Today, Lo-Ma's Sean Thompson, in the 113-lb. class, was defeated by Clarion-Goldfield Dows' Tyler Stein.

Thompson was up 4-1 after period one. But in the second period, Stein scored two points to Thompson's one. And in the final period, Stein shut out Thompson, scoring 4-0, to win by a final of 7-5.

Logan-Magnolia came back in the next weight class. Hagen Heistand (120) got a pin.

Prior to that pin, which happened at the three minute and 50 second mark, Heistand was up 9-4.

In a 10-6 decision, Lo-Ma's Wyatt Reisz won in the 126-lb. weight class over Denver's Jacob Moore.

It was 5-3 in favor of Reisz after period one. But in the second period, Wyatt scored five points to go up 8-3.

He would score two more in the third period to Moore's one to win 10-6.

The next match would unfortunately not be in Logan-Magnolia's favor as Brady Thompson (132) lost to West Sioux's Cullen Koedam.

Thompson was unable to score a point in any of the three periods while Koedam scored two in the first, two in the second and two in the third.

Lo-Ma's Briar Reisz (152) added a third win to Lo-Ma's tally as he beat AHSTW-Avoca's Jaedan Rasmussen.

It was tied 3-3 after one period. Then, in the second Reisz scored a couple with a take down and Rasmussen scored one.

Reisz added one more to his score in the third period, with an escape, to make the final 6-4.

Finally, the Panthers ended their night on a positive note with a win in the heavyweight 285-lb. division by Barret Pitt.

Pitt beat Gabe Hayes, of Louisa Muscatine, by decision 5-1. All five of his points came in the second period.

In the first round of consolations, Sean Thompson beat Noah Grage, of Durant, by pinfall in one minute and 26 seconds.
