(Neb)-CSC Wrestlers Split Friday Duals
GOLDEN, Colo. -- The Chadron State College wrestling team got out to a 1-1 start in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference action, winning 23-20 over San Francisco State University before dropping a 24-11 decision to host Colorado School of Mines in Golden Friday evening.
The Eagles came back from a 20-12 deficit against San Francisco in the earlier match, as 10th-ranked 197-pounder Wade French pinned his opponent and heavyweight Rulon Taylor, also ranked 10th, scored a technical fall.
The second match was tougher for the Eagles as Mines' Matthew Lovingood recorded a major decision at 125, and the Orediggers never trailed winning 7 of 10 individual bouts en route to a 24-11 victory.
For Chadron State, both Chase Clasen at 149 pounds, and French at 197, went 2-0 on the afternoon. French led the Eagles with 11 team points on a pin and a tech fall.
The biggest upset for CSC came against the Orediggers at 133 pounds. Brandon Kile took down Mines senior Noah Au-Yeung twice, in the first and third periods, giving up only a reversal and an escape, to defeat the returning national qualifier and seventh-ranked wrestler in the nation in a 4-3 decision.
Chadron State has a home dual next with Northeastern Junior College of Sterling, Colorado, on Saturday, December 8, at the Chicoine Center.
Colorado School of Mines bested San Francisco State 32-6 in the late match, with SFSU leaving one weight class open for a six-point forfeit. Mines' Lovingood upset ninth-ranked Brandon Vu in a close decision, and Au-Yeung toppled 10th-ranked Jordan Gurrola in overtime.
