POPLAR BLUFF -- Sikeston's wrestling team earned a big dual win over Poplar Bluff on Tuesday night, 43-33.

At 189, Malcolm Williams pinned Bluff's Parker Williams in 1:13. In the 215 and heavyweight divisions, Andy Croxford and Joe Johnson won by forfeit.

"We wrestled well up and down the lineup," said Hodgkiss. "This was one of the best team wins we've had this year. Everybody came out fired up and wrestled aggressive."

Sikeston (3-2) will be back in action tonight, hosting New Madrid County Central at 6:30 p.m.

In Tuesday's junior varsity match, Poplar Bluff defeated Sikeston 30-18. Sikeston winners were Trey Oetting (145), Cullen Looney (152) and Zach Casey (171).
