The Kellogg wrestling team finished the regular season on Thursday with a match against their cross-town rivals the Einstein Tigers.

Not only was Kellogg able to secure a 72-42 victory, they also snapped a seven year losing streak in the rivalry.

The Knights grabbed a big lead early with back to back to back pins from George Fernandez, Joseph Martinez and Thomas Rhodes in the first three weight classes. They would stretch their lead to 30-6 when Caleb Kassa pinned his opponent at the end of the first round at 108 pounds.

Einstein narrowed the deficit to 30-18 before Kellogg went on run, winning four of five matches to take a 14-18 lead.

Highlighting the run was a huge comeback win from Cage Jensen at 140 pounds. After falling behind 5-0 in the opened period Jensen trailed 6-2 with a minute left in the match before taking his opponent down and pinning him.

In the final match of the day Jessie Gingrich entered the varsity line-up for the first time this season won by pin before Kellogg picked up a couple forfeits in the last two weighs for the final margin.
