It didn’t take Braeden Peterson to find a way to get his first win at the prestigious Warrior Classic here on Friday. Peterson, a Moffat County High School freshman, opened up his Warrior career against the top seed in his weight class. He was pinned in the first period in the match but he was able to bounce back. Peterson pinned his next two opponents to stay alive in the double-elimination tournament. “Coming into today my goal was to make it to the second day,” he said. “By getting that first win it was a relief. That meant I was one step closer to getting to Saturday.”
