Sandpoint wrestling saw four Bulldogs win their respective matches, yet fell to Lake City 52-33 in a dual on Tuesday night.
The Bulldogs’ usual suspects — seniors Casey Olesen (126), Mason Bangeman (138) and Isaiah Fleck (160) — handled their opponents, while Brady Nelson won by tech fall after grinding it out for over five minutes.
But, with exception of Fleck, Lake City’s heavyweights handled the Bulldogs, which was ultimately the difference.
Jordan Birkhmer and Tanner Dickson won by nature of forfeits.
The Bulldogs will return home for a dual against IEL opponent Moscow on Feb. 8.
