Meet Recap:

BISMARCK, N.D. (2/07/08)-- Concordia used the strength of three pin falls to blow past the University of Mary 34-11 on Wednesday in Bismarck, N.D. The Cobbers won seven of the 10 individual matches on their way to winning their fourth straight dual meet. CC finishes off the dual-meet portion of their schedule with a 5-3 record.

Joe Leacox, Justin Berns and Phil Moenkedick all pinned their opponent, but the most impressive win of the night was turned in by Tony Neumann who beat Dusty Vliem 6-5 in the 197-lb weight class match. Vliem was named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC), a Division II league, Wrestler of the Week on Jan. 22 and had posted wins over nationally-ranked opponents on the DII level.

The match started with the Cobbers getting a forfeit at 125. Alex Vosberg was handed the win to pick up his sixth win of the year.

Leacox then pinned the Marauder's Cody Schmidt 4:37 into the match, putting the Cobbers up 12-0.

After dropping the next match at 141, Concordia would win the next four matches. At 149, Berns defeated Shawn Sneva by pinfall at 5:50. For Berns it was his eighth pin of the year and 29th overall victory. Logan Lunde followed that win with a major decision win (14-1) over Devin Nagel in the 157-lb match-up. Lane Lunde pulled out a 3-1 decision in his 165-pound match. After having his match tied at 1-1 early in the third period, Lunde would follow with a two-point takedown to win 3-1. The win was also Lunde's 29th of the year, and both he and Berns are one win away from joining teammate Phil Moenkedick in the 30-win club.

Moenkedick completed the four straight wins by pinning the Marauder's Nick Lopez in :28 seconds for a 31-3 Cobber lead. It was Moenkedick's team-leading 32nd win of the season and team-leading 13th pin of the year. Moenkedick, this week's D3wrestle.com National Wrestler of the Week, has now won 12 straight matches. He hasn't lost a match since the National Duals Meet on Jan. 12.

Kurt Wiedrich snapped the Marauders slide with a 10-5 win over Cody Salo at 184.

Neumann would then get CC back on the winning track with his big win over Vliem. Neumann recorded a one-point escape in the final period to claim the victory.

Mary would win the heavyweight match-up and bring the final score to 34-11.

Concordia will now have 10 days off before competing at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Meet at St. John's on Feb. 23. The Cobbers will be looking to post a wrestler in the top two of a weight class to earn the automatic berth into the NCAA National Meet. Concordia has not had an athlete compete at the national meet since Zack Schroeder earned a spot in 2000-01.
