No. 4 Nebraska-Kearney defeats No. 6 Fort Hays State behind Napier

HAYS, Kan. -- Fort Hays State fell 33-12 to No. 4 Nebraska-Kearney in a home conference dual on Wednesday evening.

FHSU picked up wins from C.J. Napier (149), Jon Inman (184) and Trey Page (285) in the dual, but dropped to 6-4-1 on the year in its second top-10 matchup in the last six days. FHSU fell to No. 5 Central Oklahoma last Thursday.

Napier's victory was arguably the brightest spot of the evening, as he picked up an 8-7 decision against second-ranked Brock Coutu. 

Later in the dual, MIAA wrestler of the week Jon Inman pushed his win streak to seven matches with a pin against Matt Oliver at 3:42.

In the final match of the night, heavyweight Trey Page returned to the win column with a 4-2 decision against Kelsey Empting.
