Cobbers Get Taken to the Mat by MSU-Moorhead 40-9.
|William Duppler (So., Valley City, N.Dak.) prepares to pin Jimmy Winter of MSU-Moorhead. Duppler was one of two Cobber wrestlers to win against the Dragons.|
After three matches against MSU-Moorhead, the Cobbers trailed by a slim 10-9 margin and were threatening to win for the first time in 17 attempts against the Dragons. MSU-Moorhead proceeded to win the remaining six matches and beat Concordia 40-9.
The dynamic duo of Dennis Kline (So., Plymouth, Minn.) and William Duppler (So., Valley City, N.Dak.) continued to lead the way for the Cobbers. Kline, wrestling in the third match of the night at 197lb., won a hard-fought 4-1 decision over Cody Ranz. Duppler cut the Dragons lead to one when he pinned Jimmy Winter at 1:44 of the first period.
The rest of the night would belong to MSU-Moorhead, as they earned a forfeit at 125lb. and then won four of the next five matches by major decisions, technical falls or pins.
With the loss, Concordia drops to 1-5 in dual meets on the year while MSU-Moorhead improves to 3-2.
The Cobbers will compete at the St. Cloud Invitational on Saturday,
December 14 before taking a long break over the Christmas holiday.
