No. 2 Cowboys End Cyclones’ Five-Dual Win Streak

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State’s (6-4 overall, 1-2 Big 12) five-match winning streak came to a hault on Sunday afternoon at Hilton Coliseum, as No. 2 Oklahoma State (13-0 overall, 3-0 Big 12) defeated the Cyclones 25-9.

"Wins and losses happen but what we are trying to accomplish is to go out and wrestle hard in every single situation, and I think our guys are getting there for the most part,” head coach Kevin Jackson said. “The guys are going out there and fighting hard, and I keep saying this but we’re going to be really good. These kids we have on our team are going to be real, real good."

It was a special day for Cyclone wrestling fans as Olympic Gold Medalist Jake Varner was honored at the 10-minute intermission mark of the dual. Varner’s Olympic Gold Medal banner was unveiled in the Hilton Coliseum rafters to a standing ovation from fans. Varner joined an elite fraternity, as he is the sixth Cyclone wrestler to win a gold medal. 

No. 17 Boaz Beard scored an impressive upset over OSU’s No. 10 Chris Chionuma by way of an 8-2 decision. Beard got a takedown 16 seconds into the match and did not look back from there. The win marks Beard’s fourth-straight dating back to a Jan. 13 first period pin over Drexel’s Byran Sternlib. 

No. 9 Kyven Gadson continued his winning ways, defeating OSU’s No. 6 Blake Rosholt 3-1. Gadson got on the board first with an escape early in the second period. The score was knotted at 1-1 when Gadson scored a two-point takedown on the edge of the mat with 8 seconds left in the match.

Gadson improved to 7-2 on the year against ranked opponents with the win. The Waterloo, Iowa native is now 16-2 on the year and a perfect 9-0 in dual competition. Gadson is currently on a six-match win streak that features three wins over top-10 opponents.

Redshirt sophomore Luke Goettl got back on the winning track Sunday as he defeated Keokuk, Iowa native Julian Feikert at 141 pounds. Goettl trailed much of the match, then scored a late escape and takedown with 1:24 left in the final period. Goettl then rode out Feikert for the win.

Iowa State returns to action on Friday, Feb. 8 to take on No. 20 Northern Iowa at 7 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. The dual marks the annual Beauty and the Beast event for the Cyclones, as the women’s gymnastics will compete simultaneously with the wrestlers.
