The two setbacks put D-S at 2-5 overall in duals on the season.
Winners on the mat for D-S against Boone were Luis Mendoza at 126 pounds, Colton Johnson at 145, Leo Araujo at 160, Max Rodriguez at 220 and Eric Turcios at heavyweight.
Mendoza, Araujo, Rodriguez and Turcios all won their matches by pinning their opponents.
Against Carroll, winners on the mat for the hosts were Kaleb Reed at 152, Treyton Fender at 182 and Rodriguez at 220.
For Reed, the victory was his first in a Monarch uniform. Fender won his match by pinning Carroll’s Cade Schable in 3:59.
"We wrestled Boone very tough, taking bonus points when given the chance and fighting to keep the opponent from scoring bonus points," commented Bradley.
"Highlights were falls by Mendoza, Araujo, Rodriguez and Turcios and a last-second, come-from-behind victory by Johnson," he added.
"We fell to a tough Carroll team in our second dual. Sophomore Reed picked up his first win for the Monarchs and the team got points from Fender and Rodriguez."
"We were unable to resist giving up those bonus points like we did against Boone," Bradley stated.
