February 21, 2014
By David Swartz - Managing Editor , Estherville News

DES MOINES - Junior Cody Thompson gave himself a chance to improve on last year's sixth-place finish as he won his Class 1A third-round consolation match late Friday night.

The Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire heavyweight can place as high as third, but no worse than sixth in today's medal matches.

Thompson opened his match against Panorama's Garrett Johnston (48-5) with a first period takedown with Johnston coming up with the escape. Johnston tied the match in the second period with an escape, but then was called for stalling as Thompson led 3-2. Thompson then earned an escape midway through the third period and held on for the 4-2 victory.

Thompson. ranked eighth, will face Wapello's Ryley Howell (32-1) in the consolation semifinals. Howell, ranked first, lost 2-1 in the semifinals to Maquoketa Valley's Tyler Yonkovic. Yonkovic had defeated Thompson 4-1 in the first round.
