Utecht's decision lifts Richland over Chiawana

RICHLAND -- Dustin Utecht of Richland decisioned Nick Garcia of Chiawana 9-6 in the final match of the day at 135 pounds, securing the Bombers a 35-31 dual meet win over the Riverhawks at Art Dawald Gym.

"They always have a good match with each other," said Richland coach Scott Surplus, who also lauded Nick Sargent for another solid match at 125 despite a 4-3 loss to Chiawana's Brandon Gonzalez.
