The No. 4 Cowboys hit the last stop on their three-dual road trip this weekend at Utah Valley on Monday, and came out with a dominant 37-0 win. It was the first meeting between the two programs. OSU is 7-0 on the season and 4-0 against Big 12 schools.
The dual lost a lot of its flavor without two of Utah Valley’s top stars in Taylor Lamont (125) and Demetrius Romero (165) who are both out with injury.
OSU completely dominated the dual from top to bottom, but there were a few intriguing matchups.
At 141, Dusty Hone got the start. I don’t believe this to be a lineup shift, but an opportunity for Hone to get a chance to start in front of his home state.
There were a few scrambles but no scoring in the first, and Hone started the second on top. He got a full-period ride, then had that flipped on him when Ty Smith got a pretty good ride and erased most of Hone’s riding time. Hone ultimately managed to get a late reversal and ride out to win 3-0.
At 174, Kekana Fouret put up a pretty solid fight against Dustin Plott. He pushed the pace and took a lot of shots. He got in on a few, and Plott had to use some tough and stingy defense to avoid being taken down. He eventually put together a few shots and scores and walked away with a 5-1 win, but was pushed a little.
The final match of the night was another intriguing one with Luke Surber and Jayden Woodruff. Both are undersized heavyweights wrestling up. Woodruff took a good shot early, but Surber was able to create a scramble to counter and eventually get behind Woodruff and score a takedown. Woodruff got an escape, then Surber started the second on bottom with a 2-1 lead. He hit a granby to get a quick reversal before Woodruff got an escape. Woodruff got in on another shot and Surber created another scramble to score again.
In the third, the exact same thing happened again. Woodruff took a shot, Surber created a scramble and scored. Woodruff attempted a late flurry, got a takedown and stall call on Surber to close the score a bit, but Surber held on to win 8-6.
