Gold beats Green at Cal Poly's intrasquad

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- A fall by Sean Dougherty and a technical fall by Devon Lotito lifted the Gold team coached by Scotti Sentes to a 21-15 victory over the Mitch Monteiro-coached Green squad in Cal Poly's annual intrasquad dual wrestling meet Friday night in the Mott Athletics Center.

Dougherty pinned Kent Beecham in 6 minutes, 36 seconds, after building a 13-4 lead in the 184-pound bout. Lotito, the defending Pac-12 champion at 133 pounds, scored a 16-0 technical fall over Victor Trujillo, securing the win in 4 minutes, 23 seconds.

Cal Poly's other Pac-12 champion on the roster this year, Dominic Kastl, earned an 8-0 major decision over Nick Troquato at 174 pounds. Kastl, a junior, claimed the 165-pound crown in 2012 and missed the 2012-13 season with a lower back injury.

Also scoring major decisions were 125-pounder Britain Longmire (13-5), 141-pounder Colt Shorts (10-2) and 157-pounder Maxamillian Schneider (16-7).

Other winners were Blake Kastl with a 6-2 decision at 149 pounds, Sohrab Movahedi with a 3-2 decision at 165 and Tyler Hecht with a 3-2 decision at 285 pounds. Movahedi snapped a 2-2 tie with a third-period escape for his win while Hecht broke a 1-1 tie with a takedown with 15 seconds remaining for his victory.

Brendan Buckley officially opens his third season as head coach at Cal Poly next Thursday with a Pac-12 dual meet at CSU Bakersfield.
