"Monday meets are tough, especially on the road. Our older wrestlers handled the pressure well," said coach Tony Senor. "Deacon Haag had an excellent close match. He listened to the coaches very well. Dylan Mosley also wrestled well. He' s listening very well in his matches. Isaiah Ruiz and Eli Bethal had a great day. Things the coaches saw that we need improvement on is fighting off half nelsns and getting hand control in the bottom position. We also need better set ups to our take downs."
Mexico next wrestled on Nov. 15 at Kirksville.

"Mexico got off to a fast start, scoring 16 in the first quarter. For the second game in a row a lopsided quarter turned the tide in the game with Mexico getting outscored 16-1 in the second," said coach Keith Liuder. “We didn’t handle the pressure of a press in the second quarter and Moberly turned that into layups. Balanced scoring seems to be a theme as the season unfolds with 8 players scoring. Unfortunately, we don’t have any practice time to work on some details."
The Bulldogs next played Tuesday at Boonville.
Mexico 30, Hannibal 52
Ryder Straddie, 4 pts
Jayce Delozier, 4 pts
Tobias Chapman 4 pts
"The third quarter was the downfall in this game. Mexico was out scored 20-6 in the third," Louder said. "Turnovers in the third that Hannibal was able to convert to points got u in the third. Once again the effort was there all game long. For the second game in a row we got scoring from nine of the 10 players. As we move forward we must cut down and turnovers and finish more consistently at the basket.”
