Huskers Earn 600th Dual Victory

Page 1 2

Lincoln - Senior Stephen Dwyer (174) and Craig Brester (197) each went 2-0 and the Nebraska wrestling team picked up its 600th dual win in school history as the Huskers defeated Nebraska-Kearney (23-18), but fell to No. 6 Central Michigan (29-6) Saturday afternoon at the NU Coliseum. Nebraska is 6-3 on the 2009-10 season.

Brester delivered the momentum-shifter against the Lopers at 197 pounds, pinning Christian Flavin in 3 minutes, 57 seconds to give Nebraska a 20-18 lead with one match remaining. The Huskers overcame a 10-point deficit that began with Dwyer's 2-0 decision at 174 pounds over the first-ranked Division II wrestler in the nation, Marty Usman. Sophomore Tucker Lane closed out the victory over the Lopers with a 7-1 win against Ben Hohensee at Heavyweight.

Nebraska's run toward the win was thwarted at 157 pounds, where the Huskers were forced to forfeit due to a knee injury to Jordan Burroughs. The senior saw his 44-match win streak snapped in the first dual of the day against No. 6 Central Michigan, injuring his knee in the first period of a 3-2 overtime loss to No. 13 Steve Brown, his first defeat since March 21, 2008 at the NCAA Championships. The Huskers would go on to use victories from freshman David Klingsheim (125), junior Mike Koehnlein (141) and redshirt freshman Josh Ihnen (184) to fill Burroughs' void against the Lopers.

Dwyer and Brester accounted for Nebraska's points versus the Chippewas, with Dwyer picking up his sixth victory over a ranked opponent this season by downing No. 5 Ben Bennett, 4-1. Brester defeated Eric Simaz by decision as well, 11-4, helping the Huskers win two of the last four bouts.

Nebraska is now out of competition for two weeks over Christmas break, but returns home for the new year Sunday, Jan. 3 when the Huskers host another double-double against North Dakota State (2 p.m.) and North Carolina State (4 p.m.).
