    Indiana defeats SIUE, Manchester

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Coming off of a loss to Wisconsin, the Hoosiers made a great turn around, defeating SIUE 28-12 and Manchester 47-6. IU won 16 of the 18 matches that they entered a wrestler. In dual meets on the season, Indiana is now 2-1.

    "I like the way we rebounded after a tough loss to Wisconsin. We wrestled with intensity," said head coach Duane Goldman. "Hopefully we can build on that and continue to wrestle the same way in upcoming matches."

    In the match against SIUE, redshirt senior Taylor Walsh and sophomore Jake Masengale both recorded pins. Five other Hoosiers earned victories -- four by decision and one by major decision. Indiana dominate the match versus Manchester with five pins and two tech falls. The only team points that Manchester scored were due to the forfeit of the 125-pound class by IU.

    In the 133-pound weight class, sophomore Chris Caton defeated Patrick Myers (SIUE) and Chase Wilson (MAN). In his bout against Wilson, Caton earned the quickest pin of the day in only 30 seconds. Redshirt sophomore Trevor Moody was a point scoring machine, winning 11-7 against Karsten Van Velsor (SIUE) and with a 15-0 tech fall against Josh Juarez (MAN)

    Redshirt freshman Luke Blanton went 2-0 on the day with a 13-4 major decision in his match verses SIUE's Erik Traveras and a pin in 1:39 versus Manchester's Bryce Roberts. Joining Caton, Moody and Blanton at 2-0 on the day are Walsh, Nate Jackson, Jake Masengale and Luke Sheridan.

    Third ranked Taylor Walsh added two more pins to his tally, bringing his season total to 13 and his career total to 60. In a tough bout against Jake Residori (SIUE), 16th ranked Nate Jackson won on a 4-3 decision. Jackson followed that with dominating 12-4 major decision.

    Taylor Walsh isn't the only Hoosier who can rack up the pins, as Jake Masengale also pinned two on the day. The first came in 3:14 versus Derek Nagel (SIUE), the second in 4:46 against Alex Roberts (MAN).

    Senior Luke Sheridan duplicated his result from Manchester last season with a first round pin. Sheridan won a hard fought bout against Matthew McCliments with a 2-0 decision.

    The Hoosiers next match is against Cleveland State, one week from today on December 20 at 1 pm (Cleveland, Ohio).
