LWC Wrestling edges No. 11 Cumberlands on Senior Night
By Kyrin Mayfield
For the fifth time this season, the No. 3-ranked Lindsey Wilson wrestling team defeated a ranked opponent as the Blue Raiders beat No. 11 Cumberlands (KY) 32-14.
Four of the first five matches went to Lindsey Wilson (11-0), beginning with an amazing performance from Nate Becker at 125-pounds. The freshman recorded a pin in his first collegiate bout at 55 seconds of the second period. Gabe Adams followed with a dominant effort in the 133-pound weight class as he notched a 17-0 tech fall. The two freshmen gave the Blue Raiders an 11-0 lead.
Cumberlands (3-2) got on the board when Bryce Nickel (No. 12 at 141) registered a major decision against Tanner DeMien.
The Blue Raiders responded as Trent Johnson (No. 2 at 149) continued his perfect season by notching a major decision against Chasen Brown (No. 17 at 149) for his 11th win of the year. Derrick Smallwood (No. 2 at 157) also kept his unblemished record with his third pin of the season to give Lindsey Wilson a 21-4 advantage halfway through the dual.
Falling behind, Cumberlands' Turner Black gave the Patriots some hope by earning a quick pin at 1:58 in the first period against Isaiah Newberry. Jarod Swank (No. 10 at 174) chipped away at the Blue Raiders' lead even more with a major decision for Cumberlands over Austin Deffenbaugh. Lindsey Wilson led 21-14.
Tyler Hall (No. 4 at 184) and Gabe Jacobs were tied at two points late in the third period before Hall surged ahead to earn a decision and give the Blue Raiders more breathing room at 24-14.
Carlos Figueroa (No. 9 at heavyweight) sealed the victory for Lindsey Wilson with a tech fall at 197-pounds. The win gave the Blue Raiders a 29-14 edge with only one round to go.
A battle of top-5 heavyweights concluded a night of action as Lindsey Wilson's Brandon Reed (No. 1 at heavyweight) faced off against Aaron Johnson (No.4 at heavyweight). Tied at two points each at the start of the third period, Reed notched an escape followed by a couple of late takedowns to earn a decision and finalize a 32-14 Blue Raider victory.
Lindsey Wilson's regular season concludes on Saturday at Campbellsville with a 6pmCT start.
