But then, after Eric Vogel won by forfeit at 106 pounds, Dorian Tollenaar pinned Omar Salcedo in 4:22 at 113 pounds to put Arlington ahead to stay. Down four points, MG still had a shot, but Jonathan Cerna-Galindo, in his first varsity match, pinned Jacob Steele in 3:37 to clinch the victory.

Casten Tollenaar got the home team off to a good start at 126 pounds by winning a major decision over Taylor Herridge 15-2. At 132 pounds, Cody Mitchell of MG won a 6-2 decision over Cole Phillips. Arlington’s Trevor Latta then won a 7-1 decision over Joel Foster at 138 pounds.
