OTTAWA — Van Wert picked up its first dual win of the season and did so in dramatic fashion on Thursday night.

Trailing at Ottawa-Glandorf entering the final match, Van Wert’s Lloyd Eutsler pinned his opponent, Matt Schmersal, in the 195-pound weight class to secure a 35-30 Cougar win.

Gabe Steyer (132) defeated Evan Ellerbrock by technical fall and Isaiah Bretz (145) pinned Brent Siefker. The Cougars also picked up points at 106 pounds, 138 pounds and 152 pounds due to no Titan wrestlers in those classes. O-G had pins in four weight classes and a void at 113.
