#13 MSU Takes Down #6 Upper Iowa On The Mat

Posted: Updated:

The 13th ranked MSU wrestling team swept their opening weekend in the NSIC.
Thursday night was a bit more of a challenge as 6th ranked Upper Iowa visited the Mavericks at Bresnan Arena.
Both clubs split decisions in the opening two weight classes, before Drew Lexvold landed a pin in the 2nd period to give the Mavs the 9-3 lead.  The Peacocks would take the next two weight classes by decision to tie it at 9-9.  MSU would get a 2-1 decision at 165 thanks to Cody Quinn's riding time.  It would go all the way to the heavy weight with MSU up 18-15 going into the final match.  Corby Running would get a sudden victory in overtime to win the match and secure the dual victory 21-15.
