Three pins down the stretch helped the Park Rapids wrestling team rally for a 48-34 win over Staples-Motley in a triangular meet at Staples Thursday night.

Pequot Lakes/Pine River-Backus used five pins and four forfeits to defeat the Panthers 61-9 in the other match.

Pins by Jared Sunram at 113 pounds, Nolan Booge at 120, Ben Baumgartner at 138 and Justin Dravis at 145 gave the Panthers a 24-18 advantage. Staples-Motley won the next three matches to claim a 34-24 lead before pins by Jeff Dickinson at 182 and John Kyllonen at 195, a forfeit win by Trai Schmidt at 220 and a pin by Chris Baxter at heavyweight rallied the Panthers.

Against the Road Crew, Baumgartner's 10-5 minor decision at 138, Kyllonen's 9-4 minor decision at 182 and Schmidt's 5-3 overtime decision at 220 accounted for the Panthers' three wins. The split left Park Rapids with a 2-7 record in dual meets.
