Dragons Dominate Jamestown in Nonconference Dual, 43-3

JAMESTOWN, N.D. – Pins from juniors Blake Bosch and Isaac Novacek led the way for the Minnesota State University Moorhead wrestling team in a 43-3 rout of Jamestown in a nonconference dual Tuesday night in Jamestown, N.D.

MSUM improved to 5-4 in duals this season while Jamestown fell to 3-9.

The Dragons also got bonus points from freshman Austin May, who won by major decision at 184, and earned 18 points off of three forfeits.

MSU-Moorhead Dragons“We wrestled OK,” MSUM head coach Kris Nelson said. “It’s hard to get going when you have forfeits right away. Overall I thought we wrestled all right.”

The dual started at 197, and the Dragons won by forfeit at both 197 and 285 to establish a 12-0 lead. Jamestown won at 125 to cut the lead to 12-3.

Bosch, ranked No. 2 at 133 pounds, improved to 22-5 on the season with a pin of Jamestown’s Phillip Johnson in 1:20 to push the lead to 18-3.

MSUM won by forfeit at 141 to make it 24-3, and Novacek improved to 13-13 on the year with a pin of Jamestown’s Brandon Aragon in 6:03 as the Dragons built a commanding 30-3 lead.

MSUM won the next three matches by decision, and all were close. Freshman Dylan Connell edged Zachary Pickering, 12-10 at 157.

Freshman Adam Blees picked up another big win for the Dragons, edging Michael Nord – who was second at the NAIA national tournament in 2014-15 – by an 8-7 score at 165 to make it 36-3.

MSUM freshman Brayden Kuntz won a hard-fought match at 174, edging Matthew Hernandez 2-1. May capped off the dual for MSUM with a 17-3 major decision victory over Daniel Tomaszewski at 184 to make the final score 43-3.
