Ohio Halts SIUE’s Momentum – SIUE

ATHENS, Ohio – SIUE Wrestling dropped a Mid-American Conference doubleheader against the Ohio Bobcats by a 34-6 margin on Saturday night.

The Red and White notched a pair of impressive wins in the competition – the first in Game 157, as Cardeionete Wilson clinched a 6-3 decision. A few moments later, Colton McKiernan recorded a 3-2 decision win in Game 285. Caleb Tyus also put in an impressive performance in Match 149, falling narrowly 3-1 to the 32nd ranked wrestler in the 149-pound weight class.

“It wasn’t the best night for Cougar Wrestling,” said SIUE head coach Jeremy Spates following the game. “We fought hard in a lot of games but we have to start fighting smarter. It’s been a tough year with injuries and not having our whole team at the same time. That being said, we’re a better team than we showed up on the mat and we have to find out soon.”

The Cougars, who now sit 1-12 and 1-5 in MAC competition, will return to the friendly confines of the First Community Arena for the final time this season on Feb. 18 to host Kent State.
