Lights Wrestle Past Argos for Second Time This Season

Posted: Updated:

For the second time this season, the MSU-Northern wrestlers were a little too much for University of Great Falls to handle.

The sixth ranked Lights won key matches down the stretch to beat the fourth ranked Argos 27-18 on Senior Night in Havre.

The win completes a season sweep for Tyson Thivierge's team, who beat UGF 26-15 in Great Falls in November. It was the final dual for both teams before next weeks West Regionals.

"It's just a big win. This is a rivalry. Getting to go to the State tournament with this kind of momentum is big for us. UGF, I give them all the respect in the world. They came out and put up a fight in our home gym. We knew it was going to come down to the wire. We're happy," Thivierge says.
 
"This is what we needed. Going into regional's we needed this lift up right before regional's. It's good for us," added Lights Sophomore Toby Cheff.

    Drug treatment court is a jail alternative program provided by the justice system, aiming to help people overcome drug addiction rather than imprison them. It first began in Great Falls in 2005 and a Veterans Treatment Court was added in 2013. Since then, it has grown to be the largest drug treatment court in the state. Under District Judge Greg Pinski, the court has taken on some unique initiatives and has been awarded over $1,000,000 in federal grants.
