Broncos Get Three Pins in Win over UVU
Dec. 10, 2016
The win also ended an eight-match losing streak for the Broncos, the last win coming Jan. 15, 2016 at Bronco Gym against North Dakota State, 19-18.
“It means a lot, especially a first home match I think it’s important for those guys to show that we’re here to compete,” Mendoza said of his first victory as a Bronco. “I’m really proud of the way they performed tonight. We weren’t really sure what to expect. We knew what this team was capable of and these guys performed.”
Kuhn, wrestling his second match of the season, opened the dual with a pin of Jarrod Maynes in 1:51. Redshirt sophomore Michael Cook added a 4-2 decision over Trevor Wilson to give the Broncos a 9-0 lead after two matches.
Green notched his pin in 3:41 over Raider Lofthouse to extend Boise State’s lead to 15-3. Redshirt freshman Demetrius Romero (165) continued to pad the Broncos’ lead with a 20-5 technical fall over Koy Wilkinson.
DiLulo fought a back-and-forth match against Tanner Orndorff before getting a reversal in the second period to take a 6-4 lead. With five seconds left in the period, DiLulo earned the fall to give Boise State another six points.
“The guys competed,” Mendoza said. “They were offensive, they were getting after it, they kind of had a predator mindset. They kept plugging along. Even the matches that came down to the wire in the third period, they just kept competing.”
Austin Dewey (174) and Kadyn Del Toro (184) won 3-1 and 3-2 decision, respectively, to give the Broncos seven wins on the night. Dewey's win came over FloWrestling's 20th-ranked 174-pounder.
Del Toro’s victory over Sumner avenged his 4-1 loss to the Wolverine last weekend at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational.
Next up for the Broncos is the Reno Tournament of Champions, scheduled for Dec. 18.
