Duckett earns two falls in debut

HAMPTON — The St. Edmond wrestling team opened the year here with three duals, including a pair of North Central Conference meets.

The Gaels dropped all three, falling to Hampton-Dumont (60-18), Algona (72-12) and Forest City (75-6).

Freshman Ryan Duckett picked up two falls, pinning Abe Scheideman of Hampton-Dumont in 84 seconds and Algona’s Evan Deal in 2:40.

“Ryan had a good night,” SEHS head coach Mike Szalat said. “It was a good way for him to start his career. We are expecting good things out of him and he wrestled three good matches.”

Max Berry, another ninth-grader, had two forfeits. Ty Smith and Noah Carlson also picked up forfeits.

“I was happy with the way we fought,” Szalat said. “We have guys that are so raw and are just learning this sport. They gave great effort all night.”

Algona scored a 51-23 victory over Hampton-Dumont and downed Forest City, 51-27.

The Gaels return to action Saturday in Manson at the Doug Wood Invitational.
