“Sometimes Monday night matches are a little hard to get motivated for, but they did a pretty good job,” Western coach Chad Shepherd said of his grapplers. “They actually wrestled — they didn’t go out there out of control. Northfield was a pretty young team. We pretty well took care of business like we should have.”
