FARGO – On Friday the Lisbon Broncos saw their string of consecutive Class B team individual state championships snapped at six and Saturday’s team dual portion of the 2023 NDHSAA Wrestling State Tournament would offer the perennial wrestling power program a chance to end the weekend on a high note.
The Broncos’ streak of Class B team duals team dual state titles did not get snapped as Lisbon added a fifth consecutive team dual state championship with a 47-23 win over South Border on Saturday, February 18 at the FARGODOME.
Lisbon, seeded No. 1 in the Class B team dual tournament, has now won six team dual state championships in program history (2008, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023).
South Border got on the board first when Shane Nitschke scored a pin at 220 pounds,
Lisbon took the next two weight classes Grant Lyons (pin at 285 pounds) and Cruz Reinke (decision at 106 pounds) to take a 9-6 lead.
The Broncos and Mustangs went back and forth for three three weight classes and when the see-saw stretch ended with South Border’s Tristan Lepp scoring a decision at 126 pounds, Lisbon held a 15-13 lead.
From there Lisbon took control.
The Broncos scored pins at 132 pounds (Kashden Wadeson) and Carter Wallner (138 pounds). The pins paired with a decision by Mike Nelson at 145 pounds extended the Broncos’ lead to 30-13 with five matches left to wrestle.
South Border’s Marshall Lindgren scored a major decision at 152 pounds to stop Lisbon’s run but the Mustangs could build on Lindgren’s victory. Preventing that was the trio of Blaze Reinke, Boeden Greenley and Levi Sveum, who each scored bonus points in their matches to put the dual out of reach.
Saturday’s action also saw the Broncos pickup wins over Hettinger/Scranton (50-24 in the quarterfinals) and Central Cass (60-15 in the semifinals).
