Nebraska-Kearney takes down George Mason

HAMPTON, Va. -- Nebraska-Kearney won seven matches to easily defeat George Mason 25-10 in a consolation bracket dual.

The match was a part of the 34th Annual Virginia Duals, held in the Hampton Coliseum. The Lopers lost to 15th-ranked Virginia Tech 27-6 on Friday morning.

The win against the GMU Patriots (4-9) is UNK's fifth against a Division I school. The other victories came against Wyoming (2007 & '08), Northwestern ('02) and Portland State ('06).

Central City sophomore Connor Bolling got Kearney off on the right foot by having a 17-9 major decision at 125 lbs. He had six takedowns and four near fall points to reach that total. 

At 149 lbs., Kansas junior Tyler Anderson was ahead 3-2 in the second period before he pinned Donald Takagi at the 4:39 mark, giving UNK a 13-4 lead.

That advantage could've been smaller had senior Brock Coutu not finished with a flurry at 141 lbs. He managed to score five points in the last six seconds thanks to a takedown and three near fall points. That allowed him to edge Sahid Kargbo 13-11.

Later, seniors Romero Cotton (197 lbs.), Mark Fiala (184 lbs.) and Patrick Martinez (174 lbs.) all won by decision, combining for 10 takedowns.
