Dodd, Overman, Moser and Miozza in top 4 at Cumberland

By Charlie Balcom

Lebanon, TN - Kohl Dodd, Cole Overman, Brady Moser and Lucas Miozza all placed in the top four of their respective weight classes for the Lindsey Wilson wrestling team on Saturday at the Cumberland Open.

Dodd took home the title in the 197-pound bracket, Overman finished as the runner-up at 165 pounds, Moser finished third at 133 pounds and Miozza took fourth at 184 pounds.

Dodd used a pair of decision victories over Reinhardt's (Ga.) Austin Brown and Cumberland's (Tenn.) Christian Varner to advance to the semifinals of his bracket. In the semis, Dodd knocked off No. 15-ranked Eric Deluse from Cumberlands (Ky.) with a takedown in overtime SV-1 8-6. He then held on for the 3-2 win over Cumberland's Tony Crowell in the finals to win the bracket.

Overman pinned Shorter's (Ga.) Chance Mariotti to start his day and followed with a 17-1 technical fall over Life's (Ga.) Trey Paschal. He then edged Huntingdon's (Ala.) Deon Maxwell 8-2 before suffering his lone loss of the day in the finals to Shorter's Kade Kitchen 8-1.

Moser recorded a pair of decision victories to start his day over William Wilson of Reinhardt and Dominick Gibson of Shorter to reach the semifinals. In the semis, Moser quickly fell behind 10-2 following the opening period to Life's Stephen Ireland, but mounted a strong comeback. Moser rallied off a trio of takedowns in the final two periods and held the ride time advantage, but was unable to overcome the early deficit and ultimately fell 11-9. He then pinned Jordan Pitt in the consolation semis in three minutes to setup a rematch with Gibson in the finals. Once again Moser emerged victorious with a decision win.

After suffering an early setback to Cumberlands' Cameron Jones, Miozza won via forfeit and then beat Rhodes' Benjamin Asadoorian 7-1. Miozza collected a 16-1 tech fall over Jacob Matheson of Truett-McConnell (Ga.) and a 7-5 win over Mike Binns to reach the consolation finals. It was a rematch with Jones in the finals, but once again Jones won as Miozza took fourth place.

Luke Shaffer posted a 2-2 mark at the heavyweight class while Avery Martin went 2-2 at 157 pounds. Elliott Porter went 1-2 at 197 and Colt Olinde went 0-2 at 125 pounds.

Next up for the Blue Raiders is a dual at Mid-South Conference rival Campbellsville (Ky.) on Tuesday night at 6pmCT.
