In the third period, Wilson notched an escape to go with two takedowns and four near fall points. The win moves Wilson to 7-1 on the year and 4-0 in duals.

At 174 pounds, redshirt sophomore Keaton Subjeck nearly knocked off seventh-ranked Bryce Hammond. Subjeck jumped out to a 6-3 lead after the opening period with a quick takedown and four near fall points.

Tied at 6 going into the final period, Subjeck scored a late takedown, but Hammond managed to turn it into a reversal to keep the scored knotted.

In the extra period, Hammond secured a late takedown and tacked on two near fall points for the 12-8 sudden victory decision.

Redshirt junior Zach Nevills added to the Cardinal's team score with a 7-0 decision over Dylan Bollinger at 184 pounds. Nevills improves to 3-2 overall and 1-0 in duals this season.
