Fate wasn’t so much on the side of his Berthoud teammates. Robbie Workman, at 130 pounds, battled back from being down 7-3 in the third period to force overtime but lost to Wheat Ridge’s Nick Swanson 9-7 in the extra period. It’s the second straight year that Workman has lost to Swanson at the state tournament. Swanson beat Workman in the consolation draw last year.
