PALMYRA, Mo. — Coming off highly successful weekends — the Hannibal wrestling team won the Capital City Dual Tournament with seven wrestlers going 5-0, while Palmyra took fourth out of 21 teams at the St. Louis Vianney Tournament with three individual champions — the Northeast Missouri programs went head-to-head Monday night.

The Pirates won the dual 45-30, dominating the lower weights.

Hannibal’s Austin Brown won by pin at 106 pounds, while Reign Creech won by technical fall at 113 and Tristen Essig scored a 13-0 major decision at 126. Also winning by pin were the Pirates’ Noah Young (190) and Ryan Ross (285).

The Panthers were strong in the middle weights. Brayden Pillars scored a pin at 144 pounds, with Collin Arch earning a technical fall at 150. Ashton Hankins won a two-point decision at 175, and Jose Juarez earned a five-point decision at 215.
