It was a humbling afternoon on Tuesday as the Einstein Tigers lost decisively to the Meadowdale Vikings 75-35.
The Tigers had been riding high after an upset of Evergreen last week, but came out flat and never held a lead. After a pair of pins from Curt Tanaka, up a weight class at 118 pounds, and Devin Leach at 123 pounds, Einstein pulled to within nine points at 21-30.
Einstein never got any closer as Meadowdale closed the match out with a 27-3 run across the final 6 weight classes.
A bright spot for the Tigers was the continued dominance of Terrill Martinez. Martinez, a first year wrestler with a Jujitsu background, defeated his opponent 17-1 to keep his undefeated season alive and has now won his last four matches by a combined score of 62-5.
Einstein wrestles next on Thursday, March 17th at home against Eisenhower.
