Central Oklahoma dominates Central Missouri

WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- Brothers Cory and Cody Dauphin both recorded falls to lead No. 3-ranked Central Oklahoma to a 34-6 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association rout of Central Missouri here Thursday night.

The Bronchos won nine of 10 weights in rolling to their seventh consecutive victory, improving to 10-1 on the year and 5-0 in the league to capture the conference dual title. UCO, which has won 36 of 40 individual matches in the last four duals, will host Colorado State-Pueblo and Ouachita Baptist starting at 12 p.m. Saturday.

"I thought the guys did a nice job tonight competing and giving great effort," head coach David James said. "There's still some things we've got to clean up and when guys get a chance to get bonus points in matches they've got to take advantage, but all-in-all it was a good night."

Cory Dauphin picked up his fourth fall of the night at 157 pounds, needing just 1:45 to dispose of Mike Boyd. Brother Cody pinned Tim Tuaquoi at the 3:58 mark in the final bout of the night at heavyweight for his team-high eighth fall.

Casy Rowell had the only other bonus-point win for the Bronchos, overwhelming Hunter Neighbors 13-0 at 133. It was the 19th straight win including the seventh consecutive bonus victory for Rowell, who had three near-falls in notching his sixth major decision of the season.

UCO got shutouts from 125 Ryan Brooks (6-0) and top-ranked 149 Jordan Basks (7-0), while 141 Ben Morgan, 174 Kelly Henderson, 184 Tanner Keck and 197 Znick Ferrell all picked up decisions.

Keck had the toughest time before pulling out a 7-6 tiebreaker victory over Clarence Neely. Keck had two second-period takedowns in taking a 5-1 lead, but Neely tied it with two third-period takedowns and neither scored in the one-minute sudden-victory period.

Keck escaped midway through the first 30-second tiebreaker to break the 6-6 deadlock and then controlled Neely in the second tiebreaker to pick up his 95th career victory.
