Wrestling defeats UW-Stevens Point in home dual

MEQUON, Wis. – Concordia University Wisconsin overcame a slow start en route to a 23-10 dual meet victory over UW-Stevens Point on Wednesday night inside the R. John Buuck Field House. The Falcons won the last five bouts for their second-straight dual win this season.

CUW and UW-SP went back and forth at the start of the dual, with each team winning two bouts to tie the scoreboard at 6-6. Following a major decision win by the Pointers to give them a 10-6 advantage, the Falcons scored 17 unanswered points to win in convincing fashion.

The match started with senior Jake Reuteler (New Berlin, Wis.) winning 5-3 in sudden victory at 197 pounds. Reuteler picked up a two-point takedown quickly in the overtime for the win. CUW dropped its next two bouts before senior Sean Ambrocio (San Antonio, Texas) grabbed up a 10-8 decision at 133 pounds to tie the scoreboard at 6-6.

Freshman Quentin Lueck (Saukville, Wis.) started the Falcons scoring run with a 12-4 major decision victory at 149 pounds before sophomore Pierce Holtfreter (Las Vegas, Nev.) won 5-3 in sudden victory at 157 pounds. Holtfreter gave up a late point for an escape in the third period, but had the riding time advantage to send it into overtime. He then earned a two-point takedown for the victory.

Senior Casey Kenealy (Hartford, Wis.) shutdown his 165-pound opponent for a 6-0 decision win, which was followed by a substantial 10-2 major decision victory by sophomore Mason Mergener (Crivitz, Wis.) at 174 pounds. Sophomore Mason Baumgartner (Slinger, Wis.) concluded the dual meet with a 7-2 decision win.

The Falcons next compete at the CUW Open on Saturday, Nov. 22 starting at 9 a.m. inside the R. John Buuck Field house.
