PUEBLO, Colo. -- Joshua Ailey, Blake Dauphin and Jeromy Davenport earned bonus-point wins to spark streaking Central Oklahoma to a 34-6 drubbing of No. 19-ranked PUEBLO, Colo. (Feb. 4) - Joshua Ailey, Blake Dauphin and Jeromy Davenport earned bonus-point wins to spark streaking Central Oklahoma to a 34-6 drubbing of No. 19-ranked Colorado State-Pueblo here Thursday night.
It was the sixth straight win for the Bronchos of 34th-year head coach David James, who improved to 11-5 on the season while staying perfect (18-0) against the Thunderwolves.
Ailey picked up a first-period pin at 141 pounds, Davenport a second-period fall at 157 and Dauphin a major decision at 133 as UCO's big winners. The Bronchos also got regular decisions from 165 Danny Carrillo, 184 Brock Warren, 197 Jadon Davenport and Hvy Evan McGee, while 125 Zac D'Amico earned a forfeit.
"I thought we wrestled pretty well overall," James said. "We got off to a good start with some early bonus wins and stayed on the offensive for the most part."
The Bronchos jumped out to a quick 16-0 lead behind D'Amico's opening-match forfeit, Dauphin's 12-4 rout and Ailey's fall.
Dauphin had four takedowns in recording his 20th win of the season and Ailey needed just 1:45 to notch his team-high 10th fall.
Spencer Rutherford dropped a tough 8-6 decision at 149, but Jeromy Davenport got UCO back on the winning track with a pin at the 3:38 mark after building a 7-2 lead.
Carrillo followed with his eighth straight win, using a trio of takedowns to avenge an early-season loss to Kyle Bateman with a 7-4 victory and the Bronchos were in control with a 25-3 cushion.
Mason Thompson couldn't overcome an early 6-0 deficit and fell 11-7 at 174 before UCO finished the night with three straight wins.
Warren had two takedowns and a reverse in a 7-2 win, Jadon Davenport used a third-period near-fall to secure a 6-0 shutout and McGee prevailed 2-1 after picking up a penalty point for stalling with just 10 seconds remaining.
The Bronchos move on to Alamosa, Colo. Friday to wrap up the dual portion of their schedule with a 7 p.m. match against Adams State.
