Keokuk, IA – Following a third place finish in Mediapolis last weekend, the Demons head to Keokuk to square off against the Chiefs tonight. As Demon head coach Brent Van Weeldon put it on the PM Sports Page last night, it’s going to be a challenge against a seasonal contender.
“Keokuk, as usual, is always tough; they have a real solid lineup and once again it’s going to come down to who can get bonus points and who cant. We’re going to have to get started strong at the lower weights and keep it close at some weights at the end. We gotta make sure we’re staying off our back. When you put (the matchup) on paper it’s pretty close so we’re going to have to wrestle better than we have in the past at some weights and keep doing what we’ve been doing at others.”
Some key matchups tonight include Jacob Green against the Chiefs’ Tyler Hatfield at 120 pounds. The Demons will need a good showing from Austin Knupp at 152 as he faces Keokuk’s Derrick Rose.
The Demons will head to Dike New Hartford for a tournament this coming weekend.
