Seven seniors were honored on Wednesday night including Haynes, who claimed his 107th victory as a Tiger against SIUE.
Feb. 13, 2013
COLUMBIA, Mo. - The fifth-ranked Tigers honored the 2012-13 senior class Wednesday night with a 43-3 rout over the SIU-Edwardsville Cougars. Nearly a thousand fans packed the Hearnes Center to witness Mizzou take nine of 10 matches, eight of which came in bonus point territory. The Tigers improved to 12-2 on the year and 20-4 all-time against SIUE.
In what happened to be an evening full of scoring, Missouri grapplers won weight classes 141 through 197 all by major decision, technical fall, or pin. Zach Toal (Sidney, Ohio) and Mike Larson (McKinleyville, Calif.) both won by fall against their Cougar counterparts, and Brent Haynes (Kansas City, Mo.) and sophomore 149-pounder Trevor Wiest (O'Fallon, Mo.) acquired technical falls.
Toal made quick work of his opponent Adam Osmoe by pinning him at 2:25. Toal only needed one takedown before getting Osmoe flat on his back. At 184, Larson waited until the last possible second to finish off Derek Nagel. Simultaneously, as the buzzer went off, the official smacked his hand on the mat indicated a pin at 6:59.
Filling in for Drake Houdashelt at 149, Wiest made the most of his opportunity by taking shot after shot. Wiest tallied nine takedowns and three nearfalls of two points in his 25-9 technical fall over Logun Taylor at 6:07. Wiest's nine total takedowns is good enough for the most in a dual bout this season for a Tiger. Houdashelt previously held that honor with eight.
Haynes added nine points to a 8-2 lead after two periods. A takedown and a couple three-point nearfalls got the senior the technical fall and his 107th career win as a Tiger.
Senior 141-pounder Nicholas Hucke (Pewaukee, Wisc.) took care of Brandon Brindley by major decision thanks to 3:18 of riding time that increased the final score to 10-2. Kyle Bradley (St. Peters, Mo.) and Todd Porter (House Springs, Mo.) also added major decisions at 157 and 174, respectively. Bradley tacked on four takedowns, a reversal, and a two-point nearfall to earn his ninth major decision. Coming off of a big weekend against Oklahoma State and Oklahoma in early February, Porter earned his third in as many tries with a 17-5 victory over Jake Residori. Porter has a team-leading 49 takedowns on the year after accumulating six more Wednesday.
The Tigers' big man and No. 1-ranked heavyweight in the land Dom Bradley (Blue Springs, Mo.) capped the night off with a 6-2 decision over David Devine, the only win that didn't count for bonus points.
SIUE's Patrick Myers closed the team score gap to 6-3 at 133 pounds after the Cougars failed to send a 125-pounder to combat No. 4 Alan Waters. Myers defeated Mizzou redshirt freshman Boomer Boyd (Wilmington, N.C.) 6-1 with 1:36 of riding time accumulated. Boyd got his first career start at 133 pounds against Myers and couldn't amass much more than a few near takedowns and an escape. The loss marked the first time since the 1999-2000 campaign that the Tigers had given up team points against the Cougars.
