Cougars Score Pair of Sizable Victories

Kyle Lowman

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - SIUE wrestling took a step forward Sunday with two dual victories at the Vadalabene Center.

SIUE improved to 5-17 with a 52-6 victory over Knox and a 38-9 triumph over Lindenwood (Belleville). SIUE dropped a 33-12 decision to Indiana.

The 52 dual match points was the most scored by the Cougars since SIUE scored 44 against Briar Cliff during the 2004-05 season.

SIUE Head Coach David Ray said Sunday's matches were confidence builders for his team.

 

 

"It was confidence builders the first two matches. We needed that. I felt really good going into the Indiana dual that we would go in and maybe even knock them off," Ray said.

 

SIUE opened the day with a quick match against Knox. The Cougars accepted three forfeits and walked over Knox with five first-period pins from Dillon Pousson, Kyle Lowman, Adam Osmoe, Jake Residori, and Derek Nagel. It was senior day for Pousson and Lowman.

 

The Cougars followed up the win over Knox with a win over Lindenwood (Belleville). Pins by Lowman, Residori, and David Devine paced the team.

Patrick Myers and Residori earned wins over Indiana, and Josh Wood accepted a forfeit to account for the scoring. Ray said his team gave too much respect in the Indiana match.

"Our goal for the next two years is to not give respect to our opponents and make them earn it," Ray said.

 

The Cougars have two Southern Conference (SoCon) matches left. SIUE faces VMI and Chattanooga next Saturday in Chattanooga, Tenn.
 

"It was a good day today, and we have a lot of work ahead of us. It's about getting better and keeping positive," Ray said.
