No. 3 Cyclones Defeat Utah Valley, 31-9
OREM, Utah – No. 3 Iowa State (10-2, 3-0 Big 12) won its 14th consecutive Big 12 dual with a 31-9 victory over Utah Valley (1-5, 1-2 Big 12) Saturday night inside Lockhart Arena.
Four of ISU’s seven wins came with bonus points, including three falls. Zach Redding, David Carr and Marcus Coleman all registered first-period pins.
Redding got Iowa State on the board at 133 pounds with a fall against Kobe Nelms in 2:34. Redding used a chicken wing to turn Nelms and settled in for the pin to put the Cyclones in front, 6-3, after two matches.
At 149 pounds, No. 7 Paniro Johnson picked up a 5-2 victory over Isaiah Delgado thanks to a pair of first-period takedowns.
Jason Kraisser kept Cyclone fans on the edge of their seats as usual in the 157-pound bout. The senior used a strong third-period ride to erase riding time and secured a takedown in sudden victory to down Tyson Humpherys, 4-2.
Carr didn’t mess around against Danny Snediker, picking up the fall in 1:03, the Cyclone’s fastest of the season. Two matches later, Coleman locked up a cradle on the edge of the mat for a quick pin against Hunter Morse in 1:12.
In the only bout of the night between two ranked wrestlers, No. 5 Yonger Bastida squared off against No. 23 Evan Bockman at 197 pounds. Bastida used a takedown in the first and second periods, as well as an escape in the third, to grab a 5-3 victory over Bockman.
Sam Schuyler closed out the dual with a 12-3 major decision against Chase Trussell. Schuyler had five takedowns in the win, including two in the final minute of the match, to secure the major.
Iowa State has a weekend off before it returns to Hilton Coliseum Jan. 27 and 29 to host Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Tickets are available, here.
