Dhesi's pin caps Oregon State's win at Cal Poly

San Luis Obispo, Calif. -- The Oregon State wrestling team won 7 of 10 matches and defeated Cal Poly 31-12 in a Pacific-12 Conference dual on Friday night to stretch its winning streak to three matches in a row.

The Beavers (8-5, 2-1 Pac-12) won the first five matches to build an insurmountable 21-0 lead. A major decision by redshirt freshman Corey Griego at 184 and a pin by redshirt sophomore heavyweight Amarveer Dhesi clinched the match.

Sophomore Ronnie Bresser (125) won by technical fall and redshirt junior Joey Delgado (149) won by major decision to also earn bonus points. It was the second major decision of the road trip for Delgado, who also earned extra points in the 21-13 win at Stanford on Thursday.

Redshirt sophomore Abraham Rodriguez (157), redshirt sophomore Jack Hathaway (141) and redshirt junior Joey Palmer (133) were OSU's other winners. Rodriguez blanked his opponent 4-0; Palmer won by forfeit.

The Beavers conclude the road trip on Saturday with a 5 p.m. Pac-12 dual against CSU Bakersfield at Centennial High School in Bakersfield. It is their final road match of the regular season.

OSU's next home dual is Feb. 11 against Oklahoma. The Beavers host Air Force on Feb. 14, then conclude the regular season with the Feb. 21 Border War against Boise State, also at Gill Coliseum.
