Ohio State defeats Stanford in first match at Covelli Center

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio State University wrestling program hosted its first match inside the Covelli Center, putting on a show for the nearly 4,000 fans in attendance by chopping down the Stanford Cardinal in 29-6 final tally. The Buckeyes were victorious in nine of 10 matches, including a pair of sudden victories which sent the crowd into a frenzy.

LINEUP DEBUTS

Quinn Kinner, Sammy Sasso and Zach Steiner each made their varsity lineup debuts Sunday night, and all walked off the mat as victors. Kinner kick-started the night at 133 pounds, earning a 7-1 decision in the first official wrestling bout contested inside the Covelli Center. Two matches later, Sasso improved 6-0 on the season with a hard-fought 3-1 win over No. 19 Requir van der Merwe at 149 pounds. Steiner jumped out early and maintained the upper hand in a 9-6 decision in the 184-pound clash.

SUDDEN VICTORIES

Luke Pletcher and Elijah Cleary worked overtime as their matches spilled into sudden victory. Pletcher came out on the right end of a wild scramble to emerge triumphant while Cleary ripped off three third-period takedowns to even the score at the end of regulation. He then tacked on one more in the the extra frame to push Ohio State ahead 12-0 through four bouts.

ANOTHER THRILLING FINISH

Edge-of-your-seat action came at heavyweight as well. Gary Traub trailed 3-2 with less than 75 seconds remaining when he dragged David Showunmi back into the circle by his ankle before pouncing for the bout-winning takedown.

A complete match recap to come.

Nearly 4000 fans?...it only holds 3700 and had to have at least 1000 empty seats...

I would like to see attendance included in all box scores.
If you read InterMats coverage of the Penn St/Navy dual, they include the attendance figure (6,490).
I was surprised it wasn't included in this article.
