Wrestling Drops Pac-10 Opener to Oregon, 29-4
Nov. 10, 2001
Stanford, CALIF. - With five members of its lineup ranked in the top-three in the Pac-10, Oregon (1-0, 1-0 Pac-10) handed Stanford (0-2, 0-1 Pac-10) its first conference loss of the season this afternoon at Burnham Pavilion. Four of the Ducks are also ranked in the top-20 nationally.
Junior Harold Penson (Richmond Heights, OH/Richmond Heights) provided the only win for the Cardinal this afternoon as he earned a major decision (14-5) over Elias Soto at 184 pounds. Penson is now 2-0 on the season after taking a decision against Navy last night. Stanford stayed within striking range in most of the other matches, with Oregon taking seven decisions over the Cardinal. Four bouts were decided by four or less points.
The Cardinal's home season is on hiatus until January 18, 2002 when Cal State Bakersfield visits The Farm. Stanford will head up to San Francisco State this Wednesday, November 14, for a 7 p.m. dual meet.
