Oklahoma State defeated Columbia 23-12 on Sunday. The comeback win moves the Cowboys to 6-1 on the season. Here’s how things went down.

The dual opened up with Trevor Mastrogiovanni dropping a 6-0 decision to Nick Babin. Daton Fix then tied it back up with a 6-1 decision over Angelo Rino. At 141, Columbia got a lot of momentum as Carter Young was pinned by Matt Kazmir to put them up 12-6. The Cowboys would not gain a lead in the dual for a while.

Victor Voinovich and Kaden Gfeller registered back-to-back decisions at 149 and 157 to tie the dual at nine before Columbia regained the lead with a 10-4 decision over Wyatt Sheets by Josh Ogunsanya at 165. This put Columbia up 12-9 heading into the final four matches.

At 174, Dustin Plott was in a tight one before a late scramble led to a takedown and a 5-2 win. This tied up the dual at 12. Travis Wittlake was trailing and had given up a decent amount of riding time in the second period when he got a reversal and turn to retake the lead on Aaron Ayzerov. He had another dominant period on top in the third and ultimately won 9-3 to give the Cowboys their first dual lead of the day at 15-12.

Luke Surber then put the dual away with a 21-6 tech fall over Javen Jovero, and Konner Doucet closed things out with a 1-0 decision over Dan Conley at HWT.

The Cowboys wrestle Northern Colorado and West Virginia next weekend in Stillwater.
