            BOISE, Idaho Heavyweight Andy Patrick scored the winning team points for the Boise State University wrestling team Thursday (Dec. 14) night as his 9-8 decision in the final match of the night gave the Broncos a 21-18 victory over Cal State Bakersfield.

 

            With the team scored all tied at 18 points heading into the last match of the evening, Patrick trailed Eric Parker 6-3 prior to the start of the final period.  But the sophomore from Boise (Meridian HS) turned the match around in the final two minutes by scoring five points to tie the match at 8-8 at the end of regulation.  Patrick was then awarded one point for advantage for his one point win and three-point Pac-10 Conference victory over the visiting Roadrunners.

 

            Boise State fell behind in the team score, 18-8, prior to the final four matches.  Nate Lee started a four-match winning streak for the Broncos when he posted a 20-7 major decision over Garth Wara in the 174-pound weight class.

 

            The Broncos tied the match when the Casperson brothers, Mike at 184 pounds and Matt at 197 pounds, both posted decisions over their opponents to make it 18 points apiece with the heavyweight match remaining.

 

            Along with the four straight wins to end the match, Boise State also received individual victories from Levi Jones at 133 pounds when he posted a 12-2 major decision over John Cardenas, and Tyler Sherfey when he recorded a 12-4 major decision over Daniel Alejandro at 157 pounds.

 

            The dual match was the first of the season for both Boise State and Cal State Bakersfield.
