After wrestling to a 4-4 tie through three periods, Hall scored a two-point take down with 00:01 showing on the clock to earn the 6-4 win.

            Boise State senior Tyler Sherfey (No. 19) extended the Broncos lead with a 12-3 major decision against Joel Shaw. With the win, Sherfey improves his overall record this season to 19-8, 11-4 in duals.

            Next, at 174-pounds, Nate Lee managed to grind out another hard fought match by Cal Poly’s Ryan DesRoches. Lee needed a two-point take down in the third period to finally put the match out of reach, 6-5. Lee, who entered this week ranked No. 16 nationally, is 11-3 this season and 9-1 in duals.

            Boise State would earn its two wins by fall at 184 and 197-pounds. No. 4 Kirk Smith pinned Evan Barbre at the 6:01 mark to earn the first win by fall of the night. Boise State sophomore Brent Chriswell (No. 5 ranked) followed suit with a first period pin (2:24) of Bo Lukehart to extend the Bronco lead, 22-0.

            In the heavyweight match Sam Zylstra wrestled to a 4-1 decision against Cal Poly’s Kelan Bragg. Then at 125-pounds, Boise State’s Alan Bartelli earned the second major decision of the night, defeating Josh Obregon 8-0. No. 4 ranked Andrew Hochstrasser pushed the Bronco lead to 34-0 by earning a 19-4 technical fall in the 133-pound match against Jake Tanenbaum.

            In the final two matches of the evening, Bronco senior Cory Fish earned a 12-2 major decision over David Christian. Jason Chamberlain completed the shutout for the Broncos with a 4-0 decision against Eric Maldonando in the 149-pound match.
