Sunday, January 20, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team dropped a tough 21-17 dual at Cleveland State this afternoon. The Mocs won five matches, including bonus points in two wins. However, a forfeit and a pin moved UTC's overall record to 4-6.

Sophomore Kevin Malone (Carrollton, Ohio) gave Chattanooga a 10-3 advantage with his 6-1 decision over Amon Willis at heavyweight. UTC was poised to run away with the match with sophomore and 15th ranked Nick Soto (Spring Hill, Fla.) taking the mat at 125. However, he was upset by Ben Willeford in a 5-4 loss.

UTC had to forfeit at 133 and lost again at 141. Senior Dean Pavlou (Cleveland, Tenn.) dropped his match to Nick Flannery 5-3. The Mocs cut the lead to one at 15-14 after junior Alex Hudson (Marietta, Ga.) posted a 10-2 major decision over Mike Mencini at 149.
