WRESTLING: Cyclones top OU 26-18

The following is a press release courtesy of Iowa State athletics communications. 

NORMAN, Oklahoma – The No. 8 Iowa State wrestling team(7-2, 1-1 Big 12) defeated Oklahoma (6-6, 1-2 Big 12) 26-18 today. ISU’s winning efforts were propelled by four bonus-point victories, including two pins.

No. 6 Earl Hall was pitted against No. 2 Cody Brewer in the second match of the dual. Brewer got in on a single leg on Hall, and it looked like he’d go up 2-0 early in the match. However, Hall ran through Brewer’s grasp, and was able to bring Brewer to his back and secure a pin in 1:02. The fall marked the fourth top-10 opponent Hall has defeated in the New Year.

Up next for the Cyclones was Dante Rodriguez at 141. He also secured bonus points for Iowa State with a 17-6 major decision over Oklahoma’s Trae Blackwell. Rodriguez recorded five takedowns, a two-point near-fall and a three-point near-fall in his match. The freshman now has 11 bonus-point victories on the year.

No. 14 Gabe Moreno and No. 4 Michael Moreno also notched victories for the Iowa Staters at their respective weight classes. G. Moreno grabbed three takedowns en route to his 9-4 decision over Shayne Tucker.

M. Moreno defeated Oklahoma’s Clark Glass via a 5-0 decision. An escape, three-point near-fall and 1:46 of ride time lifted Moreno to victory in the 165 bout.

At 184, No. 15 Lelund Weatherspoon added more bonus-points for the Cyclones in his 8-0 major decision over Brooks Climmons. Weatherspoon got out to an early 4-0 lead with a first-period takedown and two-point near-fall. He added another takedown in the second period. An escape to begin the third period and 2:33 of ride time gave the Cyclone the 8-0 major decision.

Iowa State’s No. 2 Kyven Gadson closed the door on the Sooners with a third period pin over Andrew Dixon. Gadson led 5-2 in the third period before bringing Nixon to his back and then eventually securing the fall in 5:58.

Iowa State will hit the road again next weekend as they wrestle at West Virginia Saturday, at 5 p.m. CST.
