UNK wins five matches by a combined 17 points to top ASC

KEARNEY, Neb. – Looking to make it two in a row against nationally-ranked Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) opponents, the Adams State wrestling squad dropped five decisions by a combined 17 points in falling to 9th-ranked Nebraska-Kearney in Cushing Coliseum on Friday afternoon.
The Grizzlies fell to 6-5 overall and 4-3 in RMAC duals with the loss, and fell to 1-4 against ranked opponents this season. The Lopers improved to 12-3 with a 2-1 RMAC mark with the win, and would record a dual-meet victory over New Mexico Highlands on Friday as well.

ASC junior Kenny Jordan (Frankfort, Ill.) earned the Grizzlies’ first team points in a match-up between a pair of nationally-ranked 141 pounders. Jordan, rTanked No. 6 according to the Feb. 3 National Wrestling Coaches’ Association (NWCA) poll, took the lead against seventh-ranked Dalton Jensen on a second-period reversal. Jensen recorded an escape in the second and another with 1 minute, 2 second left in the third to knot the bout at 2-2, but 1:42 of riding time gave Jordan a 3-2 decision.

Jordan, now 17-2 overall this season and a perfect 10-0 in dual meets, is also 2-0 against nationally-ranked opponents this season.

Jordan’s win came after a pair of decisions had given the Lopers a 6-0 lead. Freshman 125-pounder Jerry Huff (Broomfield, Colo.) recorded a pair of escapes in the third period, but fell by an 8-2 tally against sixth-ranked Josh Smith, and at 133 pounds redshirt freshman Corey Johnson (Newcastle, Calif.) was unable to overcome a pair of first-period takedowns against Stephen Weimer in a 4-2 loss.

After forfeiting at 149, the Girzzlies faced a 12-3 hole that was quickly closed by win by fall from redshirt freshman Justin Samora (Cortez, Colo.). Samora’s first pin of the season came with the match tied 6-6 and just seven seconds left on the clock, brining ASC within three (12-9).

But 10 points in the next three matches, including a major decision at 165 pounds and decision by two and one point at 174 and 184,respectively, assured the Lopers of victory with a 13-point lead and only two matches remaining.

Third-ranked junior Luke McPeek (Albuquerque, N.M.) continued his dual-meet dominance, upping his dual-meet record to 10-1 with his seventh pin of the dual season coming at the 4:51 mark of the afternoon’s 197-pound match.
The Lopers ended the dual with a 6-2 in the heavyweight bout to make the final tally 25-15.

The Grizzlies will wrestle their final dual of the season next Thursday, hitting the road again to face Colorado St.-Pueblo, 3-8 this season and 0-5 in the RMAC. The ThunderWolves scored a 52-0 win over Northwest Kansas Tech on Thursday, Feb. 3, and will be in action on Saturday against UNK before hosting ASC.

Following their dual with the ThunderWolves, the Grizzlies will then have two weeks to prepare for the Feb. 26-27 NCAA Super Regional Four/RMAC Championships in San Francisco, Calif.
