No. 16 Todd Small always keeps fans on the edge of their seats. He earned a reversal on the edge early in the third to tie it at 6. He cut him knowing No. 15 Madrigal had riding time locked. Small was in on a single as time ran out.
Not a lot of offense at 141 through the first two periods. Both wrestlers managed escapes to start the second and third periods. No. 6 Parker, however, took four to five shots to No. 5 Demas one in the third. Demas finally was warned for stalling after two more shots in sudden victory by Parker, who eventually fell with two seconds left. Parker dictated that match.
Jarrett Degen used three takedowns and tough riding to earn his second victory in a row since returning to the Cyclone lineup. Continuing to have him in the lineup to build towards March is a great thing.
No. 19 Justin Thomas proved to be much for the redshirt freshman, Grant Stotts. Thomas earned the fall in the second period.
Offensive explosion for, Chase Straw at 157 pounds. Straw pushed the pace earning three takedowns and two-point near fall. He was awarded a stall point in the third period and over four minutes of riding time.
