After a couple of forfeits, Snake River’s returning state champion Treyton Nillsson pinned Nate Labbee in the first round.

Snake River 39, Pocatello 37
The match opened at 195 with SR’s Morgan Smith pinned AJ Elrod. Morgan would get a big pin to start the Panthers off right. After a match of back and forths which can make the most hardcore fans watching want to pull their hair out, Treyton Nillsson followed with a pin against Kade Smith. After a few losses, SR came back with a win from Mark Williams with a lightning fast pin in 56 seconds against Jessco Nielsen.
Next up was Sean England, a freshman. He wrestled in the youth program when he was younger and also wrestled in junior high with many successes. The match was really close and he put up a fight all three rounds but lost by points to Cameron Loper.
Senior Dayton Schild was another whose style was making one wrestling mom “crazy”. He won over Samuel Joerger. Shad Walker and Damon Dance finished out the night with both pinning their opponents
Snake River’s next match is Dec. 18 at home against South Fremont and Sugar Salem.
