Freshman Alan Waters won his 29th match in 30 tries and scored his 10th fall of the season after pinning Caleb Flores in 4:42.  Waters jumped out to an 8-0 lead after the first with a takedown and two near falls.  After escaping in 11 seconds to start the second, Waters scored a late takedown in the period and turned it into the fall.

At 141, Todd Schavrien improved to 16-4 on the season after getting a technical fall on Alec Hoffman to increase the Tiger lead to 11-3.  Schavrien picked up a takedown, a two-point near fall and a three-point nearfall in the first for the early 7-1 lead.  Another takedown and two-point near fall in the second increased his margin, and he finished the match with a third takedown followed by another three-point near fall in the third, winning 16-1 for his ninth straight dual victory.

Redshirt freshman Kyle Bradley kept the bonus points coming for Mizzou, as he defeated his opponent by a 9-0 major decision at 149.  After a takedown and two-point near fall in the first, Bradley would get an escape in the second for a 5-0 lead.  Starting the third period on top, Bradley turned his opponent for three more back points and had 3:43 of riding time to secure the victory.

Zach Toal won his 13th match of the season at 165 pounds, defeating Nick Pickerell by a 6-0 score.  Toal jumped out with an escape and takedown in the second and scored another takedown in the third to go with riding time, shutting out Pickerell.

Junior Patrick Wright found himself down after two periods to Brice Wolf, but bounced back and earned a 4-3 victory.  Wright was hit for locked hands in the second period, and an escape by Wolf extended his lead to 2-0.  Wright escaped just 11 seconds into the third period and hit a takedown with 25 seconds left in the match to take a 3-2 lead.  Wolf escaped 11 seconds later, but Wright locked up 1:11 in riding time to give him the edge.

Sophomore Brent Haynes won his first dual match of the year with a 5-1 victory over Joe Johnson at 197.  Haynes had a first period takedown and a second period reversal after starting on bottom to go along with 3:37 of riding time to clinch the dual victory for the Tigers.

Closing out the match, junior Dom Bradley defeated No. 13 Christian Brantley at heavyweight by a 5-2 decision.  Bradley scored a late first period takedown for the 2-0 lead and rode out Brantley in the second.  In the third, Bradley picked up a quick escape but was taken down, cutting his lead to 3-2.  However, Bradley accumulated over three minutes of riding time beforehand, clinching the decision for the Blue Springs, Mo., native.
