EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE collected four falls Sunday in a 50-3 triumph over Truman in college wrestling action at the Vadalabene Center.

"The guys wrestled well," said SIUE Head Coach Jeremy Spates. "We came out and had bonus points in a lot of matches. That was something we had talked about before the match."

Lucas Bernal got the Cougars started with the first of four pins. His 4 minute, 28 second victory over Caleb Osborn set the pace. The Cougars also earned first period pins by Justin Ruffin, Cameron Kelly and Sergio Villalobos. Nate Higgins earned a first-period technical fall.

Spates said a great deal of what the Cougars practiced was utilized against Truman.

"This was a good chance for guys to work on those things," he added.

SIUE, 2-11, now has matches next Saturday at Northwestern and next Sunday at Wisconsin before the Mid-American Conference Tournament takes place March 8-9 at Old Dominion.
