An eight-match winning string to cap the duel gave the Dragons a 24-point win over the Cobras in Adrian Thursday.
After falling behind 18-0 when the 130-pound match was complete, AHS bounced back to win the final eight matches of the night to thwart W-ML-B-OÕs upset bid.
The victory upped Adrian's Red Rock Conference record to 2-0-1, moving it into a tie with Jackson County Central for first place. A Dragon win over Fulda-Murray County Central in Slayton Jan. 23 would give AHS at least a share of the conference crown.
Adrian's late run against W-ML-B-O consisted of four pins, two technical fall wins and two major decision victories.
Trent Bullerman (1:26 over Jason Kruger at 135), Nate Bullerman (1:19 over Travis Winters at 140), Seth Bullerman (1:17 over Brady Lund at 152) and Justin Wieneke (2:31 over Chad Brown at heavyweight) recorded pins for Adrian.
Levi and Tyler Bullerman recorded technical fall wins over Derek Hall and Josh Gardner at 160 and 171 respectively. Lance Bullerman (12-0 over Spence Haugen at 145) and Jared Henriksen (12-4 over Cole Zimmerman at 189) recorded major decision wins for the Dragons.
W-ML-B-O compiled an 18-0 lead by recording three major decision wins and two decision victories to start the match.
Nick Kulseth (12-4 over Chris Kruger at 112), Anthony Elg (9-1 over Dusty Bullerman at 119) and David Borsgard (12-2 over Eric Kunkel at 125) posted major decision wins for the visitors. Jeff Stuckenbroker topped Cody Reverts 3-1 at 103, and Andy Molitor bested Tony Sauer 14-11 at 130.
