WRESTLING: Cardinals split matches against Montana State - Northern and Warner Pacific

12/11/2017

The Cardinals headed into their last two completions of the semester against the MSU-Northern Lights and the Warner Pacific Knights. The Cardinal Wrestling squad took on the MSU-Northern Lights first on Saturday evening (12/9) and won 4 of the 10 bouts on the evening, but struggled to find a rhythm at several weights. Picking up wins for the Cardinals were Freshmen Esco Walker (125) and Jacob Swift (174) and Sophomores Brent Evans (149) and Damian Trujillo (285). With a couple close losses, the Cardinals were unable to come up with the dual victory, losing by a score of 19 to 15 to the Lights.

Following the dual against MSU-Northern, the Cardinals took on the Warner Pacific Knights on Sunday afternoon. With some slight adjustments from the MSU-Northern dual, the Cardinals came out with a bang, winning 9 of 10 contests on the afternoon, with 3 forfeits and 3 bonus-point victories, the Cardinals won with a final score of 42 to 3. Gaining bonus point wins for the Cardinals were Brent Evans (149), Cooper McCullough (165), and Jacob Swift (174).

The Cardinals enter Christmas Break but will return to action January 13th in Missoula, MT against Eastern Oregon.
