“We don’t like to win that way,” Fort Osage Bob Luke said, referring to Raytown South’s forfeits. “We had a couple of guys out of the lineup, but it didn’t make any difference. We have the Liberty Tournament this weekend, so we’re trying to get ready for that.”

“In a couple of matches, we were ahead before getting pinned,” Truman coach Steve McGee said. “We just couldn’t finish the way we wanted tonight. I’m not sure what it was. We could have been a lot closer. I’m not sure if we could have won, but we could have been a lot closer.”
Park Hill South won the JV match, 39-18.
