The deciding point came as the third period expired, when Wellnitz was awarded a penalty point. The consolation semifinals continued the trend of tight knit affairs with Jett Samuelson claiming a 6-4 decision, sending Wellnitz to the fifth place match. The battle for fifth was his easiest match of the day, taking a 5-2 decision over Cole Maschmann of Beatrice. Sawyer Haag was also in the third round of consolations at 170-lbs to start the day, but dropped a 7-4 decision to Jackson Phelps of Hastings.
