WRESTLING: No. 2 Cowboys dump No. 10 Sooners

NORMAN — When the Oklahoma State University Cowboys and the Oklahoma Sooners meet it’s always a battle. Sunday on Oklahoma’s wrestling mat it was no different as both teams exchanged matches. OSU redshirt freshman Alex Dieringer changed that, as his victory led the No. 2 Cowboys to a 26-9 victory over the No. 10 Sooners.

“It felt good and I was glad I could help the team,” Dieringer said.

Coach John Smith said he liked his wrestlers aggressiveness but thought they could work on technique.

“I thought we did OK,” coach John Smith said. “I was pleased with the scoreboard. There were a few things that I didn’t like as far as discipline. I liked the grind-out wins at 133, 157 and 165.”

Oklahoma took the first bout with its 125-pounder Kyle Garcia edging Oklahoma State’s Eddie Klimara. Oklahoma State led in the first after a takedown. Garcia got a reversal to even the score. In the third Garcia escaped from Klimara’s grasp to win.

Jon Morrison, who is ranked eighth evened the score with a 9-4 victory. The junior recorded two takedowns and an escape to grab a 5-3 lead in the first. An escape and a takedown in the third sealed the bout.

Sophomore Julian Feikert lost the 141 match to top-ranked Kendric Maple by fall at 5:57. Maple controlled the bout from the get-go scoring seven points in the first on a 3-point near fall, a 2-point nearfall and a takedown. Maple ended the match with 1:03 left.

Second-ranked Jordan Oliver defeated sixth-ranked Nick Lester by major decision, 14-5. Four takedowns in the first period allowed Oliver to hold an 8-3 lead. In the third, Oliver gained a point for stalling, then scored a takedown to put him over the necessary eight-point lead for major decision.

Then came the game-changing match at the 157-pound bout featuring No. 14 Dieringer and Oklahoma’s ninth ranked Matt Lester. Dieringer fell behind early after he suffered a takedown. In the second, Dieringer evened the score with a takedown, only to see Lester re-take the lead with an escape. Dieringer came back with a takedown to hold a 4-3 lead after two. Lester evened the score at the beginning of the third with an escape but Lester took him down 11 seconds later to take a 6-4 lead. Lester got back within one with an escape but Dieringer followed with a takedown in the final minute to win. Smith said he was proud of how Dieringer fought back.
