Wilson wins big but Stanford wrestlers drop Pac-12 meet


Redshirt junior Jim Wilson, ranked fifth nationally, turned in a dominating, 10-1, major decision at 165 pounds but the Stanford wrestling team dropped a 22-16 decision to visiting Cal State Bakersfield in a Pac-12 Conference meet Thursday.

The Cardinal (2-2, 1-1 Pac-12) to Nevada for the Reno Tournament of Champions on Sunday.

Stanford, which returned to action after taking a break for finals, won just four of the 10 bouts and gave up bonus points in three of its losses.

Mason Pengilly put the Cardinal on the board with a 9-3 decision over Carlos Herrera at 133 pounds. Pengilly tallied a takedown, six near fall points and 2:02 of riding time in the win. He is now 7-4 on the season.

The Roadrunners won the next three bouts to pull ahead, 15-3, lead before the television intermission.

Wilson wrestled out of the break. There was no score going into the second period, where Wilson rode Adam Fierro out to rack up 2:00 of riding time. 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.

Redshirt sophomore heavyweight Nathan Butler capped off the scoring with a fall in 6:54 over Matt Williams. It marked the second fall of the season for Butler, who moves to 5-1 overall.
