Nov. 12, 2015

BOISE, Idaho – The Boise State wrestling team split a pair of duals at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa, dropping Midland (36-9) and falling to 15th-ranked Iowa State (34-3), Thursday.

The duals were the first of the season for Boise State.

In the squad’s opening dual, the Broncos won six-straight matches before Midland was able to get on the board. Rami Haddadin opened the scoring with a major decision (10-0) at 125 pounds, and Josh Newberg picked up a 6-3 decision at 133.

The Broncos then scored bonus points in four-straight, including pins from Jake Velarde at 141 (2:31), Geordan Martinez at 149 (1:32) and Chris Castillo at 157 (4:48), and a major decision from Taylor West at 165 (12-4).

Midland scored its only points with a 4-3 decision at 174 and a forfeit at 184.

Harley DiLulo recorded a major decision at 197 (18-4), and Gaylen Edmo closed the dual with a 4-2 decision at heavyweight (SV2).

The script flipped in the night cap against the Cyclones, as the Broncos were able to record just one victory. Haddadin registered a 5-4 decision at 125 to open the dual, but Boise State dropped eight of the next nine and once again forfeited at 184.

Haddadin improved to 5-1 on the season.

The Broncos will remain in Ames for Sunday’s Cyclone Open, the team’s second tournament of the season.
