Wrestling Falls to No. 13 Boise State
Dec. 17, 2008
Boise, Idaho - Twentieth-ranked senior Heinrich Barnes (Pretoria, South Africa) not only tallied his third major decision of the season at 149 pounds, but he did it over another ranked opponent and on his birthday, but the Oregon State wrestling team fell to No. 13 Boise State on Friday evening, 25-13.
Barnes took control early in the match, scoring first on a takedown with another takedown later in the first period before scoring a pair of points on a near fall. His opponent, No. 16 Jason Chamberlain, scored all four of his points solely on escapes.
Redshirt freshmen Chad Hanke (Dayton, Ore.) and Clayton Jack (Vacaville, Calif.) got the Beavers off to a solid start at 197 pounds and heavyweight, earning bonus points on a major decision and technical fall for a quick 9-0 Oregon State lead.
Hanke started with a 5-0 lead before allowing Jacob Neumann a one-point escape as the second period expired. He earned the 13-4 major decision with riding time for his second of the season.
Jack scored seven of his 17 total points in the first period alone, finishing the three-minutes with a three-point near fall. In the second period, he scored the only points, tallying five on a reversal and another three-point near fall. He held on with riding time to take the 17-2 technical fall over Sam Zylstra, his first of the season.
Oregon State battled but lost four close decisions. Senior Jake Gonzales (Enumclaw, Wash.) dropped a close 3-1 decision to Alan Bartelli at 125 pounds. Junior Keegan Davis (Salem, Ore.) battled through two scoreless periods, but fell to Tyler Sherfey, 2-1, at 165 pounds. Senior Ben Harris (Langley, Wash.) lost by two in his first overtime match of the season, 5-3, to Kurt Swartz at 174 pounds. And No. 8 senior Kyle Bressler (Federal Way, Wash.) fell 4-1 to No. 4 Kirk Smith at 184 pounds.
