Southern Door battled but came up short in Two Rivers Tuesday, losing its wrestling dual 45-27 on 104.1 WRLU.
Raiders' 195-pound wrestler Anderson Kopidlansky won the first contested match of the evening, winning by technical fall over Riley Phillips 16-1. After Southern Door got their first points via a forfeit, Blake Jensen was pinned by Connor Sanford at 285 pounds. Alec Guilette got the first contested win for the Eagles with an 11-4 decision over Isaiah Massman at 113 pounds. The Raiders would score points in six of the final weight classes, highlighted by two-time defending state champion Matty Bianchi capturing an 8-2 decision over Grant Englebert in a battle of two of the best wrestlers in the state. Griffin Slezewski and Brady Tooley got the other two wins for the Eagles, each registering pins at 132 pounds and 170 pounds respectively.
