Josh Kelly started the night for Concordia by recording a 13-5 major decision win at 125. For Kelly it was his fourth win of the season. Mike Holman then claimed the only forfeit of the night for CC at 135 and then Ben Anderson posted an easy 15-0 technical fall win at 141. It was Anderson's team-leading 10th win of the year. The Lunde brothers won a pair of decisions at 149 and 165 and in between, Kevin Fynboh came away with a 13-4 major decision at 157. Lex Lunde outdueled his opponent at 149 to win 11-5 and then Lane Lunde edged out a 5-3 decision at 165 to give CC a commanding 25-0 lead. The two-point margin of victory was the closest match of the night.
After Ridgewater's lone win of the night at 174, Concordia closed out the match with a major decision at 184, a decision at 197 and then a pin at 285.

Nathan Schmitz pushed CC's lead to 32-3 with a 4-1 victory at 197. Schmitz has now won seven matches on the year. Finally, freshman Tom Bouressa put the cherry on top of the dual-match sundae by coming away with the only pin fall of the night.
