Gunn's Phil Park won by pin (1:40) at 285 before the Titans took the lead for good with forfeit wins at 103 and 112. With Gunn holding a 29-23 lead with three matches remaining, Yonatan Rotman produced a 9-4 win at 119 for the Titans, teammate Matt Lee followed with a pin to win at 125 and Dylan Gorman finished off the Vikings with a tech fall (15-0) to capture the 130-pound division.
