MATCH OF THE AFTERNOON
The match between Alec Dam, Parker Kuhlman, Luke Nelson, and David Chon provided the best thrills at the invite for not only the four teammates but those watching it. Even though one MSOE pair was going to lose, the match went into a sudden death championship point format due to the amount of daylight left. 

WHAT'S NEXT
This event concludes the men's fall schedule. They will pick up again in February for their first regular season dual of 2020 when they take on Wartburg and North Central on February 1st.
