BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Three SIUE wrestlers scored bonus points in Saturday's road Southern Conference dual match, but Campbell defeated the Cougars 27-16.

"It was a good dual. We wrestled hard in all of the matches," said SIUE Head Coach Jeremy Spates. "We were aggressive."

Jake Tindle led SIUE with a 16-0 technical fall at 197 pounds over Willie Bivens.

Jake Residori (174 pounds) and Freddie Rodriguez (125 pounds) each recorded major decisions. John Fahy added a 6-2 decision over Benjamin Barton at 149 pounds.

"John wrestled well, and Jake Tindle and Jake Residori put up a lot of points for us," said Spates. "I saw a lot of positives today."

Rodriguez's win was an important one as the senior defeated Nathan Kraisser 13-2. Kraisser entered the weekend ranked in the top 15 in several national polls.

"That's a huge win for him," added Spates.

Campbell scored bonus points as well with two technical falls and a major decision. The Camels improved to 9-6 overall and 5-1 in the SoCon.

SIUE, 4-11 overall and 4-3 in the SoCon, close out the regular season Wednesday at Missouri. Match time is 4:45 p.m. at the Hearnes Center.

"We're going to have a tough one against Mizzou," said Spates. "After that, it will be about peaking for the end run and making sure we're healthy and ready to go for the conference tournament."
