Iowa State victorious in Big 12 opener over Oklahoma

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- No. 13 Iowa State's (4-1, 1-0 Big 12) matchup with No. 18 Oklahoma (2-2, 1-1 Big 12) came down to the final bout to determine a winner. With the Sooners leading 16-15 heading into the final match, senior Gannon Gremmel came away with a 5-4 decision over Josh Heindselman in TB1, lifting Iowa State to its fourth win of the season.

How it Happened
In the 285-pound match, Gremmel took an early lead, securing a takedown in the first period. After an escape in the second period, Gremmel brought a 3-1 lead into the third period. Heindselman briefly took a 4-3 lead, but Gremmel got to his feet to send the match into overtime. After a scoreless sudden victory period, Gremmel earned an escape in TB1 and rode out Heindselman to secure a 5-4 decision and a dual win for the Cyclones.

Senior Ian Parker and freshman Julien Broderson also tallied big wins on the day. In a rematch of the 2020 Big 12 finals, Parker toed the line with Oklahoma's Dom Demas. Trailing 3-2 in the third period, Parker locked in a takedown with :30 on the clock and rode Demas out for the 4-3 victroy.

A 4-3 decision was also the result of Broderson's match with OU's Anthony Mantanona, advantage Broderson. The Davenport, Iowa, native scored a takedown in the first and led 2-1 early. With the match tied 3-3 late, Broderson's pace forced a second stall call on Mantanona, awarding Broderson one point, which was enough to knock off the top-10 Sooner.

Sophomore David Carr remained perfect on the year, defeating Justin Thomas by 4-0 decision. Carr used a takedown, an escape and nearly three minutes of riding time to push past Thomas.

Like Carr, sophomore Isaac Judge also imposed his will on top in his match with Jake Stiles. Judge was in complete control, racking up 3:08 of riding time in a 4-1 victory at 165 pounds.

At 125 pounds, freshman Kysen Terukina got the nod for the Cyclones on Sunday. The Ewa Beach, Hawaii, native was tied 4-4 with Mason Naifeh with under a minute to go in the match.

I watched this dual. As I suspected, Bastida IS overhyped.
