Oklahoma blanks OCU 50-0


NORMAN, Okla. -- Fifth-ranked Oklahoma recorded four falls and four technical falls en route to a 50-0 victory as it blanked Oklahoma City University Tuesday night in McCasland Field House.

In front of a crowd of 548 people, OU improved to 2-0 on the season and held an opponent scoreless for the first time since Jan. 14, 2012, when it defeated both Appalachian State and Utah Valley St. 41-0 and 43-0, respectively, in Arlington, Texas. With Tuesday’s victory, the Sooners increased their all-time record against OCU to 8-0.

OU head coach Mark Cody said that he was pleased with the performance from his team.

“I’m proud of them and of how aggressive they were,” Cody shared. “We’ve basically been in official practice for a couple weeks now and a lot of the stuff they’re hitting, we’re not even working on yet. We won’t be firing on all-cylinders until the end of November. To have them doing what they’re doing now, it’s a testament to the work they’ve put in over the summer. I’m proud of the way they competed [Tuesday].”

First up for the Sooners was redshirt senior Jarrod Patterson, who took the 125-pound bout against OCU freshman Adrian Gaines by a technical fall, 20-4.

Redshirt sophomore Cody Brewer faced junior Travon Smith at 133 pounds. Brewer recorded the second-consecutive technical fall for the Sooners, 18-1.

With just 2:40 left in the first period, redshirt senior Nick Lester had a takedown against freshman James Landoll to take a 2-0 lead. Lester went on to claim the 141-pound match by fall, 2:00.

At 149 pounds, redshirt senior Kendric Maple took the match by major decision, 18-6, against OCU freshman Ricky McCarty. Maple recorded two takedowns in the first period and held a 4-2 lead. McCarty deferred to start the second period, and Maple struck with an escape to take a 5-2 lead. Maple, who won the riding time point with 2:26, went on to win by major decision, 18-6.

Redshirt junior Justin DeAngelis added another fall for OU as he took the 157-pound bout against senior Hunter Muskrat by fall, 4:16.

The 165-pound match between redshirt freshman Clark Glass and sophomore Zach Skates was the closest of the night as Glass won by decision 10-4. Takedown and near fall in the first to hold a 4-1 lead. Glass added two escapes and a takedown in the second, increasing his lead to 8-4. Glass accumulated 3:18 riding time in the bout.

Derek Geiges jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first period after adding a takedown and two three point near falls versus junior Jared Bass of OCU. The redshirt junior took the match by a technical fall, 19-1.

The 184-pound match pitted redshirt senior Andrew Howe of OU against OCU freshman Derek Sivertsen. The bout was Howe’s first appearance in a team dual for the Sooners after redshirting last season following a transfer from Wisconsin. The bout was close after one period, 6-4, but Howe went on to win by technical fall, 23-8.

Just a few seconds into the 197-pound match, Travis Rutt took a 2-0 lead against junior Cody Sivertsen. The redshirt senior went on to win by fall in 1:11.

In the heavyweight division, Ross Larson added a fourth fall for OU on the night as he topped sophomore Destin Theus with a 2:44 fall.

Cody shared a focus for this team this match was getting some falls because of the value it will have later in this season, since falls add six points to the team total. Cody said he was glad with the Sooners aggressively tried for pins against OCU.

“If we’re going to make a big splash at the NCAA tournament, we have to focus on pinning guys,” Cody shared. “If you can get a pin, that’s like winning two matches at the NCAA tournament.”
