2016 IA-MN Border Battle Results

An enthusiastic crowd of nearly 400 was in Cresco Friday night March 4th to get one last look at senior grapplers from SE MN and NE IA.  The 15th edition of the Iowa-Minnesota Border Battle saw five of the fourteen matches decided by one point, and four more by just a couple points.  Team Iowa won nine matches, but the dual was far from one sided.  Iowa jumped out to a 12-0 lead, MN closed to 18-13, but then lost back-to-back one point matches.  Iowa won two of the last three to make the team score 31-16.  The win for Iowa puts them ahead in the series 8-7.  The event is sponsored by the Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame, located in Cresco.
