By Larry Goffinet

TELL CITY—Tell City won only 5 of 19 matches in a 75-21 junior high wrestling loss to Jasper Thursday.

J.R. Kieser (120-pound weight class) and Spenser Beard (125) scored back-to-back first-period pins for Tell City.

Mason Waninger (80), Dakota Hedinger (100) and Justin Alvarez (105) shut out their opponents to earn decisions for the Archers’ other victories.

Tell City had to forfeit in five weight classes, including one that was a double forfeit.

The Archers usually fill the 70-pound weight class but had to forfeit it due to a recent injury to Damian Harney.

Tell City, 10-11, was scheduled to conclude its season in the PAC tourney Saturday.
