(Neb.)-Dickinson State wrestlers outlast Chadron State
CHADRON – Chadron State and Dickinson State each won five matches Wednesday evening at the Nelson Physical Activity Center but the Blue Hawks earned bonus points in three of their wins to upend the Eagles 21-18 in their non-conference dual.
Dickinson State’s Bryden Lazaro started the dual strongly for the Blue Hawks by pinning Jace Johnson at 125 pounds. Following a 5-2 decision at 133 pounds from Chadron State’s Perry McAfee, Dickinson State won the next three matches by decision, technical fall and major decision to pull away.
“We didn’t wrestle a full match. We took breaks during the matches and that’s not Eagle wrestling,” interim head coach Brett Hunter said. “We will continue to grow and get better as a team and we need to do that because we had a great crowd tonight and the support is here for us to great things.”
Once the Blue Hawks went up 18-3, Chadron State responded.
Dylan Fors improved to 5-4 on the season with a third period pin of Jon Morales at 165 and Bret Klopp gutted out a tough 9-7 decision at 174 over T.J. Poole to cut Dickinson State’s lead to 18-12.
However, Dickinson’s Jesse Hellinger, the sixth-ranked wrestler at 184 pounds, answered with an 11-6 decision over CSC’s Jordan Debus that put the Hawks up, 21-12.
The Eagles won the final two matches, both by decision. Chris Leak rallied to earn a 9-5 win over Skyler Carroll at 197 and Michael Hill used a second period escape to prevail over Brian Klevins, 1-0.
Chadron State will be back in action Saturday in a dual at Northern State.
