Jamestown Dual Meet Results (word)
Opponent's Website: Jamestown Wrestling
The Cobbers have now won six straight dual meets since dropping their opening match of the National Dual Meet to No.4-ranked Coe. Concordia is now 8-1 on the season which is the best start to a dual-meet season in program history.
Concordia was spotted 18 points to start the match because of forfeits at 133, 165 and 197. The Cobbers then won the first three contested matches of the night to take an insurmountable 18-0 lead. Daron Hohbein led off the match by posting a 6-0 win at 125. He never allowed his opponent to come close to scoring a point. PJ Mack then gave the crowd a thrill as he was able to turn Devin DeMaine in the third period and come away with his second pin of the season. Ben Anderson completed the trio of wins by claiming a 7-4 decision at 149. It was his team-leading 29th win of the year.
The Jimmies followed that by earning one of their two wins in the match. In the closest match of the night Marion Branson edged out Zach Schumach 7-6.
Following the second forfeit, Spencer Lund recorded a 10-0 major decision at 174. Lund's win made the score 28-3 and set the stage for the second dramatic moment of the match. Like the team decision, Concordia sophomore Phil Moenkedick's match was not very suspenseful. Moenkedick went on the offensive from the opening whistle and got a pin just 1:50 into the first round. The win kept Moenkedick perfect on the year and moved his season record to 22-0.
The Cobbers claimed their third forfeit win of the night at 197 and then the Jimmies' Andrew Hammond finished off the match by coming away with a 5-2 win at 285.
Concordia will put their six-match winning streak on the line when they travel to regional rival St. John's on Friday, Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m.
