Helena's surge in the higher weights at Sentinel's Gym helped the Bengals to a road victory, 40-27, in Western AA competition.
The Bengals won four straight matches from 160 to 205 pounds to earn the advantage. Even when Sentinel heavyweight Tanner Stack pinned his man at 285 pounds, earning Sentinel six points, it wasn't enough to close the gap.
The Spartans won five of the 13 weights, but two were by forfeit where the Bengals didn't field a wrestler. Justin Mayfield earned a pin at 126 pounds and Conall Powers took a 5-3 decision at 145.
Helena won eight matches with one coming via forfeit and three by pin.
