Stanford, Calif. – The Oregon State wrestling team won 16 bouts en route to a 2-0 finish against Princeton, 47-4, and Stanford, 25-9, on Friday afternoon at Stanford.
Seven Beavers won both of their matches led by redshirt freshmen Garrett Drucker (Huntington Beach, Calif.) and Clayton Jack (Vacaville, Calif.), who earned bonus points in each at 141 pounds and heavyweight.
In the first meet of the day against Princeton, Oregon State captured bonus points nine bouts. Redshirt freshmen Kelly Kubec (Lake Stevens, Wash.) and Drucker both chalked up forfeits at 133 and 141 pounds. And 16th-ranked senior Heinrich Barnes (Pretoria, South Africa) and Jack both tallied pins at 149 pounds and heavyweight to give the Beavers a 24-0 lead.
Earning technical falls were senior Jake Gonzales (Enumclaw, Wash.), sophomore Brice Arand (Springfield, Ore.) and redshirt freshman Chad Hanke (Dayton, Ore.) at 125, 184 and 197 pounds. And rounding out the scoring for Oregon State were junior Keegan Davis (Salem, Ore.) and 11th-ranked senior Kyle Bressler (Federal Way, Wash.), who both picked up major decisions at 165 and 174 pounds.
Starting at 125 pounds against Stanford, the Beavers won the first four matches led by Drucker’s 13-4 major decision over Cameron Teitelman at 141 pounds. Gonzales got the meet off to a strong start, defeating Matt Sencenbaugh, 14-9, at 125 pounds, followed by Kubec’s 5-3 decision over Porfirio Madrigal.
Barnes continued the winning streak, winning his eighth straight match over Tyler Parker at 149 pounds in a 9-5 decision.
After falling in a couple of close bouts, Bressler picked things back up again at 174 pounds, allowing only escape points in his 9-3 win over Victor Haug, building the Oregon State lead back up to 10 at the 16-6 mark.
Hanke followed soon after, extending his winning streak to four in a 3-1 decision over Luke Feist at 197 pounds. Feist scored first on an escape in the second period before Hanke tied the match at one point each. But a takedown in the third period sealed the win for Hanke and another 10-point margin for the Beavers at 19-9.
Jack wrapped things up at heavyweight against Matt Winterbourne, controlling the match from the start by scoring on a quick takedown in the first period. Starting the second period, Winterbourne went down with an injury early, limping back onto the mat to continue but soon after giving Jack the win by injury default.
