Blanchard, OK – On Thursday, January 4th, the Lions hosted #5(5A) Piedmont in their first action since the Christmas break. Blanchard drew first blood with a fall in the first match of the night and would lead most of the way. However, Piedmont took its first lead of the night at 34-33 as a result of 10-2 major decision in the 220 pound match. With only the heavyweight match left in the dual that left a Lion victory in the hands of returning state champion Ryan Bracken vs. Piedmont’s David Morrill. In an intense match that had the crowd on the edge of their seats Bracken scored first with a takedown in the first period but would relinquish the lead early in the 2nd period. He would rebound and take a 5-4 lead into the third where Morrill chose the down position and would not be able to escape giving Bracken and Blanchard the win. With the win the Lions improve to 2-0 on the year and move up to No. 3 in the dual team rankings for Class 4A.
