An update of MAC wrestling from last weekend.
Bulls Frustrated in Dual-Season Opener
MT. PLEASANT, MI - The Buffalo wrestling team opened its dual and Mid-American Conference season Saturday afternoon, taking to the road to face #11 Central Michigan. The Bulls (0-1, 0-1 MAC) were stymied in a 0-0 loss, with a final score deceptive of the dual itself. Six matches were decided by two points or less, with the Bulls losing five of the six, and neither the Chippewas or the Bulls would score more than four points in a single bout until the final three matches of the day.
Central Michigan came out to a 21-0 lead after taking the first six matches. Mike Soria lost 2-0 to eighth-ranked Christian Cullinan at 125 pounds, Erik Galloway was pinned at 133 by third-ranked Scott Sentes, and Andrew Schutt lost 4-2 at 141. Blake Roulo lost by an even closer margin at 149, dropping a 3-2 decision to Donnie Corby. Wally Maziarz then lost 3-1 at 157 to Luke Smith, and Mark Lewandowski lost a rematch of last year's 165 MAC championship bout, falling 2-1 to Mike Ottinger.
The close margins finally fell in UB's favor in the 174-pound match, as John-Martin Cannon returned after a handful of early season injuries and earned his first win of the season with a 4-3 win over Anthony Bill. Following a major decision loss by Anthony Lock to fourth-ranked Ben Bennett, Angelo Malvestuto earned the team's most impressive performance with a 14-1 win over Jackson Lewis to bring the overall score to 25-7. Justin Heiserman would lost 10-3 in the heavyweight bout to Jarod Trice to give the Chips the final margin of 28-7.
This early-season dual schedule gets even harder for UB, as next up will be fifth-ranked Iowa on Monday, Dec. 17. It will be the first meeting ever between the two programs, and it will also be Buffalo's fourth-annual Takedown Cancer Fundraiser. The dual will be held at 7 pm, but the Alumni Arena doors will open early for numerous raffles and silent auctions to help the Bulls raise money to Takedown Cancer.
No. 11 Chippewas Dominate Buffalo, 28-7
MOUNT PLEASANT - No. 11 Central Michigan continued its dominating ways against Buffalo Saturday afternoon, keeping their record versus the Bulls unblemished with a 28-7 victory.
The Chippewas improved to 4-2 on the season, 2-0 in the Mid-American Conference and 18-0 all-time versus the Bulls thanks in part to bonus points from two of their highly touted seniors - No. 2 Scotti Sentes (133) and No. 5 Ben Bennett (184).
Sentes improved to 4-0 on the year by earning a pair of takedowns in the first four minutes of the match before turning No. 19 Erik Galloway to his back to earn his first fall of the season. The victory came in a stretch of six-straight for the Chippewas to open the match as they jumped out front, 21-0.
Senior Christian Cullinan, ranked No. 12 in the country at 125 pounds, opened the dual with a 2-0 decision over Max Soria, using a second period escape and accumulating riding time.
Junior Scott Mattingly earned a 4-2 decision at 141 pounds over Blake Roulo by earning a takedown with just over a minute to go in the third period before senior Donnie Corby used an escape and a takedown in the third period to earn a 3-2 decision at 149 pounds.
Another pair of close matches went the Chippewas' way at 157 and 165 pounds when redshirt freshman Lucas Smith earned a third-period takedown of Wally Maziarz to claim a 3-1 decision and sophomore Mike Ottinger claimed a 2-1 decision over No. 12 Mark Lewandowski.
Ottinger entered the third period trailing 1-0, but earned an escape 28 seconds in and was awarded a penalty point when Lewandowski grabbed his headgear. The sophomore had to work to close the match however as Lewandowski was able to get in on a takedown attempt and Ottinger held him off until the final buzzer.
Junior Anthony Bill dropped a hardly contested match at 174 pounds, falling behind 3-0 to No. 17 John-Martin Cannon before coming back with a takedown just before the end of the second period and escaping to start the third to tie the match, 3-3. Martin-Cannon was able to claim the victory by earning a riding time point.
Bennett controlled his match from start to finish at 184 pounds, jumping ahead 5-0 in the first period on a takedown and three-point nearfall and extending his lead to 8-0 with a second period escape and takedown. After starting the third period neutral, Bennett claimed another takedown and three-point nearfall and with riding time was able to claim a 14-0 major decision.
Senior No. 4 Jarod Trice finished the match with his own dominating performance, claiming four takedowns to defeat Justin Heiserman be decision, 10-3.
The Chippewas will compete next at the Midland Championships in Evanston, Ill., Dec. 29-30 before returning to McGuirk Arena Jan. 6 to take on Bucknell.

Wrestling Upends Duke, Falls to No. 14 Michigan in Ann Arbor; Sulzer goes 2-0, Davis wins first regular-season dual
ANN ARBOR, Mich. —The Eastern Michigan University wrestling team split a pair of matches at the University of Michigan Tri-Meet Saturday, Dec. 8, defeating Duke University, 30-9, and falling to No. 14 Michigan, 32-3.
The Eagles (4-5; 0-1 MAC) began the afternoon with a convincing 30-9 victory over the Blue Devils (1-3), winning seven matches overall and notching bonus points on five occasions. EMU experienced less success against the nationally-ranked Wolverines (6-1), winning just one match en route to the 32-3 setback.
"We started the day off with a great team effort against Duke," remarked Head Coach Derek DelPorto. "We just could not get anything going for us against U of M. There were more positives than negatives today so we will move forward from here and get ready for Indiana."
Redshirt senior Aaron Sulzer posted a 2-0 afternoon at 157 lbs., pinning Duke's Andrew DeHart and claiming an 8-5 decision over Michael Carpenter of Michigan. Sulzer moves to 9-4 on the season and 6-3 in regular-season action.
After turning in a solid 12-2 record in tournament matches this season, freshman Jacob Davis got the nod from Coach DelPorto at 174 lbs. against Duke. Davis' first-career bout resulted in a definitive 8-0 major-decision shutout of Trey Adamson.
Germaine needed just over two minutes to pin Peter Terrezza at 125 lbs. to start EMU off with a 6-0 lead against the Blue Devils. Duke would claim the next three matches to take a 9-6 lead, but the Eagles responded by rattling off victories in the final six matches of the bout.
Sulzer put the Eagles back on top, 12-6, with his first pin of the regular season against Andrew DeHart at the 2:15 mark of the 157 lbs. tussle. Redshirt freshman Jacob Dorulla (165 lbs.), Davis (174 lbs.) and redshirt junior Phillip Joseph (184 lbs.) all recorded major decisions to clinch the match for EMU with two weight classes remaining. Abro and Eggert continued EMU's winning ways with decisions at 197 lbs. and heavyweight, respectively.
Michigan jumped out to a 14-0 lead before Sulzer stopped the Wolverines' streak of four-straight wins against DeHart. The Eagles would get no closer, but held Michigan to decisions in seven of their nine victories. Dorulla and Davis each competed hard against a pair of nationally-ranked grapplers, with Dorulla losing to No. 10 Taylor Massa, 9-4, and Davis dropping a 6-2 decision to No. 14 Dan Yates.
The Eagles return home for a match against Indiana University Sunday, Dec. 16. The dual-meet is slated for a 1 p.m. start inside Bowen Field House.

Northern Illinois Falls to Michigan State, 25-9; Smith, Argue and Mougin record Huskie wins
DEKALB, Ill. – The Northern Illinois wrestling team dropped a tough 25-9 decision Saturday against Michigan State in the annual Showcase Meet.
The loss puts NIU’s record at 5-2, while the Spartans improved to 2-2 in a match that was much closer than the final score indicated.
“The way dual meet scores settle out, if you lose 10 close matches, you get swept,” said NIU head coach Ryan Ludwig. “In some cases, we let go a couple matches that were very close, hard-fought battles that I think on any given day could have gone either way. We’ve been concentrating a lot about the details in practice and those are the things that we have to get straightened out.”
“Just some very crucial positions that win big wrestling matches. Today, in some cases, we got the job done in those positions. When we didn’t get our hand raised, we lost some very tiny battles that mattered.”
In the opener at 149, Rob Jillard lost 7-5 to Dan Osterman. After getting the first takedown of the match, Jillard gave up and escape and a takedown to end the first period. Following a reversal to start the second, the Huskie junior forged a comeback attempt in the final half of the match, but came up just short.
The Spartans added to their lead with a pair of decisions at 157 and 165. Andrew Morse fell the MSU senior David Cheza, 5-0, while Dan Burk lost to Nick Proctor in a tight 3-1 decision.
Matt Mougin looked to stem the tide and turn the momentum in NIU's favor at 174, defeating Jordan Wohlfert, 5-3. After getting out to a fast 4-1 lead, Mougin was called for a stalling penalty twice to get Wohlfert within one point. However, a riding time advantage and a good defensive stand helped the redshirt junior from Columbus Junction, Iowa, emerge victorious.
With the deficit at six, though, NIU failed to get any closer, as Michigan State clinched the match with four-straight wins. Bryan Loughlin lost a 3-2 nailbiter to John Rizqallah right before halftime to give the Spartans a 12-3 lead at the break.
After the intermission, MSU got bonus points when Shawn Scott lost a 12-3 major decision against Luke Jones. However, the clincher was at heavyweight, when Jared Torrence was pinned early in the second period by 10th-ranked Mike McClure.
At 125, Derek Elmore lost a tight 1-0 contest to Brenan Lyon. After that, though, NIU finished strong with two consecutive wins. In his return following a shoulder injury, Nick Smith handled Brandon Fifield, 8-2, at 133. Tyler Argue ended the day with a 12-8 win against Christian Olanowski at 141
“I think we really need to get in touch with our offense right away,” Ludwig said. “When we come out firing and we get our hands on people and wrestle on our toes, we’re a different team. When we let people come and take the match to us, it’s hard to get your hand raised.”
The Huskies open Mid-American Conference action Tuesday, Dec. 18, when they head to northeast Ohio to take on 2011-12 MAC regular season champion Kent State. The match between the Huskies and Golden Flashes starts at 1 p.m. CT.

Three Panthers Win UNI Open Wrestling Tourney
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - The Northern Iowa Wrestling crowned three champions and had a medalist in every weight class at the UNI Open presented by Doughy Joey's.
Ryan Loder won his second UNI Open in the 184-pound weight class. Loder logged two pins before claiming his title, with the fastest being in 1:08 over Alex Daughtery of Minnesota.
"He's going to grind out wins and be stingy with points," said head coach Doug Schwab. "When you put a string of wins together, it elevates your whole level."
In the 157-pound weight class, David Bonin racked up several points by scoring major decisions against his first three opponents.
Cody Caldwell had one pin in 3:10, a technical fall and a major decision to win at 174 pounds.
"He's hard to beat when he is flowing and attacking and not tightening up. He just needs to stay relaxed," said Schwab.
Overall placewinners for UNI:
125 - Dylan Peters 4th
133 - Tyler Willers 6th
141 - Joey Lazor 2nd, Gunnar Wolfensperger 4th, Tyler Patten 6th
149 - Zach Witte 4th
157 - David Bonin 1st, Taylor Berger 6th
165 - Cooper Moore 4th, Jarrett Jensen 6th
174 - Cody Caldwell 1st
184 - Ryan Loder 1st
197 - Jared Bartel 5th
285 - Cody Krumwiede 2nd, Blayne Beale 4th
"We're trying to make little adjustments on matches we aren't coming out on top. We need to be ready at the start and win the first period," said Schwab. "When you have that many competing, you will have your ups and downs. This was a good field."
Dylan Peters, whose high school record is 195-1, lost his first two matches of the season tonight. He also had two pins for the day.
"He's a prime example," said Schwab. "He gains steam, but we need to make sure we start it early. He got valuable experience today."
Krumwiede had a pin and major decision before falling to the champion Pat Walker of Illinois.
"We want more from him, and so does he," said Schwab. "It's promising when a freshman is winning a lot of matches. We just try to emphasize you can make an impact now. You don't have to wait until you are a senior."
The coaching staff credited the volunteers' help for making the event a success.
"It takes a lot of volunteers putting in so many hours to make this run so smoothly. We can never thank coordinators like Larry Hamilton and Dan Summerhays enough for putting this together," said Schwab.
Twenty-four teams were entered: Central Missouri, Ellsworth Community College, Grandview College, Illinois, Indianapolis, Iowa Central Community College, Iowa State, University of Iowa, King College, Lindenwood, Michigan State, Minnesota State-Mankato, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, South Dakota State, United States Military Academy Preparatory School, University of Dubuque, Upper Iowa University, Wartburg and Wisconsin.
The Panthers will be in action next week at home. UNI will host Ellsworth Community College at 7 p.m. Dec. 13. Fans who bring an unwrapped gift for the Toys for Tots charity will get free admission to the wrestling meet.

Bobcat Wrestlers Take Down Appalachian State, 28-10; Garringer and Johnson tally pins; Walters remains undefeated
BOONE, N.C. - For the fifth straight season, the Ohio University wrestling team (3-3) defeated Appalachian State, posting a 28-10 victory over the Mountaineers 28-10 Saturday night at the Varsity Gym.
Ohio came out firing as it opened up a 12-3 lead thanks to a pair of pins in the first three bouts by redshirt juniors Ryan Garringer (Downers Grove, Ill.) and Jeremy Johnson (Broadview Heights, Ohio) as they defeated Appalachian State's Jesse Johnson and Joe Cummings at 184 and heavyweight, respectively.
Appalachian State fought back and close to within five points at 12-7 after ASU's Dominic Parisi posted major decision over freshman KeVon Powell, but Ohio fought back to earn victories in each of the next four bouts to open up a 25-7 advantage. Redshirt freshman Spartak Chino (Wheaton, Ill.) capped the four-bout stretch with a major decision over ASU's Collins Creech.
Redshirt freshman Cody Walters (Macedonia, Ohio) concluded the match with a 8-1 decision over ASU's Colin Hedash to improve to 13-0 on the year.
