The Burlington High School wrestling team got run over on the road Thursday night.

Elkhorn was a beast at home, collecting five pins and beating the Demons 49-22 in a Southern Lakes Conference showdown between teams who tied for the conference championship last season.

The Elks (3-0 SLC) got two of those pins, along with a forfeit win, in a five-match span to take a 37-22 lead and break open a close match.

“The bottom line is that they wrestled a heck of a lot better than us tonight,” said Burlington coach Jade Gribble. “They had everybody ready for us and it was a butt kicking, for sure. But we will take our medicine and try to learn from this. It’s early in the season, so we will try to use this as motivation down the line.”

The Demons (2-1 SLC) got pin wins from Josh Bird at 145 pounds and Zack Weiler at 113. Jared Bird defeated James Welsh 17-3 to earn a major decision at 132 pounds.

Last season Elkhorn went 7-0 in SLC matches, while Burlington won the conference meet. Each team finished with 26 points and shared the conference crown.

“We have developed a nice rivalry between us,” Gribble. “We will see them again.”

Clemon is 2-5 and Guillien is 4-5 for Case (1-7, 0-3 SEC). All of Guillien’s victories are on pins.

The Eagles could have made the meet a tight one as both Dwayne Ford (170) and Chase Vela (120) each had their opponent on their back during their matches.
