No. 15 Wrestling Dispatches CSUB 22-16
Feb. 10, 2001
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - - It took all 10 matches for the No. 15 Oregon State wrestling squad to put away Cal State-Bakersfield on Saturday afternoon, but the Beavers got a 7-3 decision by 184-pounder Isaac Weber in the meet's final bout to secure a 22-16 Pac-10 Conference victory.
OSU held a tenuous 19-16 lead heading into the 184-pound match, but Weber was able to build a 4-2 lead over Max Harris after the first period, and never looked back. Leading by two in the final period, the junior was able to evade a final takedown attempt by Harris with 30 seconds remaining, as Harris took a shot at Weber's legs but was unsuccessful.
CSUB rallied to take a 12-11 lead after six matches, beginning with Ruben DeLeon's pin of Michael Delaney in the 125-pound match to make it 7-6. The Beavers relinquished the lead after Thomas Juarez decisioned Casey Horn in the 149-pound match to make it 12-11.
Eric Jorgensen won a major decision over Elizar Ceballos by a count of 14-2 to give the lead back to OSU at 15-12, only to see CSUB regain the lead at 16-15 when Ian Nelms major decisioned OSU's Jake Huffman 8-0.
The Beavers traveled to Cal State-Fullerton following their win for a 7:30 match Saturday night.
OSU's next match will be Wednesday, Feb. 14, when they host the Oregon Ducks for the season's second Civil War meeting.
