Medical Lake's Mathew Peterson works against his opponent during a 6-4 decision at 138-pounds against his Kettle Falls' opponent.

Medical Lake will take the momentum of three straight Northeast A League victories into their hosting of Saturday's district tournament.

In the Kettle Falls victory, Ricky Petersen at 145 pounds completed an undefeated regular season at 6-0 with a pin in his weight class. Nick Reed, a 113-pounder also won by a pin and finished 5-1 in NEA competition.
