SAUK RAPIDS - Four pins helped the third-seeded Buffalo Bison upset the second-seeded Brainerd Warriors 37-30 Saturday in the Section 8-3A wrestling semifinals.
Both teams won seven matches, but Buffalo's bonus points were more than Brainerd could accumulate.
Scott Padrnos, Greg Flickenger and Chad Ohman each picked up pins for Brainerd. The Warriors' four other wins, however, were decisions.
Brainerd eliminated St. Cloud Tech 58-12 in the quarterfinal match.
Picking up pins were Aaron Padrnos, Mack Glasby, Ohman, Zach Taylor and Sam Pagel.
