College wrestling: Bison get pushed around at duals, MSUM goes 0-3

North Dakota State got a good helping of the Pac-10 Conference and it didn’t smell good. Getting skunked never does.

Oregon State blanked NDSU ending a mostly-disappointing day for the Bison wrestlers at the four-team Dakota Duals. The Bison beat Minnesota State Moorhead 36-12, but lost a winnable match 23-16 against Northern Illinois.

OSU was at another level. Dec. 13 has not been good to the Bison the last two years – they were shut out exactly one year ago at Iowa State.

“They out-horsed us,” said NDSU head coach Bucky Maughan. “They could outmuscle us. That’s a pretty good wrestling team.”

The Bison are off until after the Christmas break and are still searching for an answer at 133 pounds. NDSU forfeited it on Sunday and Maughan said he may look to a freshman after the holiday.

The Bison dug a quick hole against the Beavers. Jason Lara pinned Justin Solberg in the first period at 125 pounds followed by the forfeit at 133.

The dual was just a few minutes old and already it was 12-0. That’s not going to get it done against a team that has five ranked wrestlers.

“We’re behind right off the bat,” Maughan said. “They’re a way better team than we are.”

That wasn’t the case against NIU. The Bison had key losses in the middle weights, yet, Kenny Moenkedick’s 5-1 win at 184 pounds gave the Bison a 16-14 lead. It lasted less than a minute.

Scott Penny pinned Drew Ross at 197 pounds and the Huskies led 20-16.

The Division II Dragons, meanwhile, got a good dose of better competition. They lost to Northern Illinois 41-9 and Oregon State 48-0.

“It was a tough day but we knew that coming in,” said MSUM head coach Kris Nelson. “My main thing was that we go out there, wrestle aggressive and hustle. In the NDSU match, I thought we were really flat.”

The Dragons did get two pins from heavyweight Tim Johnson. And Nelson said the effort from his team was better as the day wore on.

“It didn’t show it in the score, but as a coach, I could tell we were working harder,” Nelson said.
