Cass’ all-time wins leader, Gabe Welch, recorded a 14-1 major decision over Kevin Gonzalez at 152 to make it 24-11.
Brendan McGehee followed with a pin of Sandis Carter with 13.6 seconds left in the first period at 160 to bring the Kings to within 24-17.
James Aho struck back for the Berries with a pin of Hunter Clark with 52.8 seconds left in the second period at 170 to give Logan a 30-17 lead. John Ward then won a 10-1 major decision over John Hartley at 182 to make it 34-17.
Michael Leonard then secured the win for Logan at 195. Even though Levi Glassburn defeated Leonard by a 7-5 decision, since Leonard avoided a pin it was mathematically impossible for the Kings to win the match as they trailed 34-20 with two bouts to go.
Blaine Elliott pinned Lucas Howerton with 1:46 left in the first period at 220 for the Kings, and Brock Reish pinned Braxton Young with 23.7 seconds left in the first period to make it the 34-32 final.
“I knew it could be close. I knew they had to pull off some upsets and they pulled off two,” Burrous said. “They wrestled well. You can’t take anything away from them. They did a good job.”
Both teams will compete at their conference meets this weekend. The Berries compete at the North Central Conference meet Saturday at Huntington North.
“I think it’s wide open,” Patacsil said. “There’s probably five schools that think they can win it and it’s going to come down to who can win some close matches, who can upset a kid that is supposed to beat them. But I think if we do wrestle the way I expect us to, we’ll be right there. I can’t say that we’re going to win it, but we’ll have an opportunity to vie for the title.”
