Cobbers Get Taken Down by Jamestown 28-9.
Concordia received stellar individual matches from their top three wrestlers, but was unable to stop a consistent Jamestown wrestling squad and lost 28-9. The Cobbers won three of the ten matches, while the Jimmies won seven, with one by a forfeit.
Dennis Kline (Fr., Plymouth, Minn.), William Duppler (Fr., Valley City, N. Dak.) and Aaron Swartz (Sr., Starbuck, Minn.) all posted victories by decision, in their respective weight classes. Duppler won by the largest amount of the three, as he downed Jamestown heavyweight Joe Vincent by a score of 6-0. Kline beat Brian Sorum 5-2 in the 197-pound weight class, and Swartz doubled up John Motta 10-5 in the 133-pound match. Swartz entered the match fresh off his championship at the UW-Eau Claire Invite and continued his hot streak. The victory ups his season win total to 20, and allows him to become the fourth Cobber to reach that milestone for the year. It is the first time since the late 1970's that Concordia has pushed four wrestlers over the 20-win mark. Duppler leads the team with 25 victories.
Jamestown started the dual meet by winning the first two matches before Duppler and Kline evened the score at 6-6. The Jimmies received a forfeit at the 125-pound weight class, and then Swartz won his match to push the Cobbers to within three at 12-9. After that match it was all Jamestown, as they won the remaining four matches. The two biggest victories were fashioned by Eric Grund who pinned Concordia's Bryce Swenson (Fr., Lowry, Minn.) at 3:55 at 141 pounds, and then JayMe DePee, who scored a major decision over Jason Dubord (Sr., Kindred, N.Dak.) at 157 pounds.
The loss drops Concordia's dual record to 5-8 on the year, while the
Jimmies improve to 7-6. The Cobbers will head to Northfield, Minn. on Saturday
to compete in the Carleton Invite. Jamestown will travel to their regional
tournament in Dickinson, N.Dak. on Sunday.
