OSU Wrestling: The Cowboys Edge Iowa State 16-15

Boo Lewallen’s major ends up being the difference.



Oklahoma State finished off its Iowa road trip on Saturday night in Ames with a victory over Iowa State.

Trevor Mastrogiovanni found himself down early against Kyle Terukina. With just a few seconds left he took down Kyle Terukina to tie things up 4-4 at the end of regulation. In OT he picked up another takedown to win 6-4. OSU rolled with Reece Witcraft instead of Andrew Nieman again at 133 and Witcraft fell 6-0. OSU dropped the next one as Dusty Hone took on Ian Parker and lost 12-6.

At 149, Boo Lewallen got the one bonus point win that ended up deciding the dual in favor of the Cowboys. Boo methodically worked to a 10-1 major decision over Ben Monroe. This was the only bonus point win of the dual and that one point kept Oklahoma State undefeated.

Wyatt Sheets, who currently has a heavily braced knee, fell to David Carr at 157 before Travis Wittlake came back at 165 and beat Isaac Judge 6-2. This put the Cowboys up 10-9 heading into 174.

At 174 OSU rolled with Anthony Montalvo over Dustin Plott, who has been the starter at 174 for most of this season. Montalvo went into overtime with Julien Broderson. After no scoring in sudden victory, the match went to rideouts. Broderson rode Montalvo out then got an escape and took Montalvo down to win 4-1.

Dakota Geer beat Tate Battani then AJ Ferrari had what ended up being his toughest test this season with Yonger Bastida. Bastida is a U23 World medalist in freestyle and is still making adjustments to folkstyle wrestling. He creates a unique matchup for Ferrari though as Ferrari doesn’t do a lot of mat wrestling, which is the main difference in folk and freestyle wrestling. Ultimately, Ferrari picked up two takedowns and a 5-2 decision over Bastida, but did give up his first points ever this season that were not from an escape when Bastida got a reversal on Ferrari in the third period.

At heavyweight, Austin Harris just needed to avoid giving up any bonus points vs. Top 10-ranked Gannon Gremmel for the Cowboys to win the dual. He did that and OSU pulled out a close one 16-15 over the Cyclones.
