Posted at 9:29 PM, Jan 23, 2021

HELENA -- It was a back-and-forth affair in Round Two of the Capital City crosstown wrestling dual on Saturday, but ultimately the Helena Capital Bruins pulled out the win over the Helena High Bengals 40-22.

Justice Seamons got the Bengals on the board with a decision over Dylan Graham at 170 pounds to make it 3-0, but the Bruins came out firing in their next three matches.

Ian Isaacson, Noah Kovick and Talon Marsh all recorded pins in the next three matches to give Capital an 18-3 lead after four matches. The dual turned the corner and suddenly Helena was back in reach. A no-contest at 103 pounds and a major at 113 for Caleb O'Shea put the Bengals down by five at 18-13.

At 120, Nathon Elmose was able to give the Bengals their second lead of the night at 19-18, pinning Capital's Hunter Rahn in exactly one minute.

Unfortunately for the Bengals, their luck ran out toward the latter half of the dual as the Bruins picked up 22 more points on the night to the Bengals' 3, giving the Bruins a season sweep in the crosstown series.
