Oklahoma State rides bonus-point wins to Bedlam, Little Rock victories

STILLWATER -- The No. 5 Oklahoma State wrestling team remained undefeated with a dominating pair of performances on Sunday, knocking off No. 19 Oklahoma, 24-10, in Norman before shutting out Little Rock in Stillwater, 45-0.

The Cowboys are now 9-0 on the season with a 4-0 record in the Big 12. The win over Oklahoma marked the third-straight ranked win for OSU and was John Smith's 50th win over the Sooners in his coaching career.

Oklahoma State now holds the advantage in the Bedlam series 144-27-10, with the Cowboys having won 19 of the last 20 times the two teams have met.

"I thought we had a good day today," Smith said. "We had a solid win in Norman and then came back to Stillwater and wrestled well. I'm looking forward to next weekend when we host the Cowboy Challenge Tournament. It should be a very exciting event filled with great wrestlers."

OSU got off to a quick start in Bedlam with Trevor Mastrogiovanni earning his eighth win on the season in an 8-2 decision over Mason Naifeh. Reece Witcraft followed with a 7-4 win over Tony Madrigal at 133 pounds.

The teams traded the next three matches before taking an intermission with the Cowboys leading 9-7 heading into the 165-pound bout. During those three matches, Boo Lewallen picked up his first ranked win on the season with a 4-0 decision over No. 17 Mitch Moore.

Following the intermission, OSU took four straight matches to separate the score and seal the first win of the day.

Travis Wittlake handed Troy Mantanona his first loss of the season, putting up 27 points en route to his second technical fall of the season. Oklahoma native Dustin Plott followed Wittlake with an 11-6 decision in his first Bedlam match. After suffering his first loss of the season last week, Dakota Geer bounced back with an 18-4 major decision over Darrien Roberts at 184 pounds, before AJ Ferrari won his second-straight match against a ranked opponent, defeating No. 12 Jake Woodley in a 3-2 bout.

The second meeting of the season between OSU and the Trojans of Little Rock was even more lopsided than the first 36-4 win. The Cowboys won 45-0 in their first time wrestling in Gallagher-Ibs Arena since Jan. 10.

Trevor Mastrogiovanni put the Cowboys up 6-0 early with the first fall of his career over Khyler Brewer. Reece Witcraft followed at 133 pounds, winning his second match of the day by way of an 11-3 major decision over Jaylen Carson.

Dusty Hone picked up a 2-0 decision before Oklahoma State rattled off three straight technical falls. Boo Lewallen ended his match in 4:16 at a score of 19-4, while Wyatt Sheets and Travis Wittlake both ended their matches early with the tech falls coming in the first period. Sheets dominated Noah Aziere, getting a takedown and four near falls to win 18-0 in 2:11. Wittlake did much of the same winning 18-2 in 2:36.

Dustin Plott defeated Triston Wills for the second time this season in their rematch at 174 pounds. After pinning Wills in the first bout, Plott grinded out a much closer 3-1 decision in GIA.

At 184 pounds, Dakota Geer racked up the points in a 24-9 technical fall over Zane Davis. With four tech falls a piece, Geer and Lewallen maintain a tie for the team lead in that category.

AJ Ferrari joined Mastrogiovanni, picking up his first collegiate pin against Dylan Johnson in 3:15. With two of the freshman collecting falls of their opponents tonight, each of the freshmen in the starting lineup for the Cowboys earned the first fall of their career against Little Rock, with Plott's coming the first time the teams met.

Oklahoma State will look ahead to the Cowboy Challenge Tournament before rounding out its regular season against Oklahoma on Feb. 21. The Cowboys will welcome No. 6 Missouri, West Virginia, Wyoming and Central Oklahoma to compete in an individual tournament next Sunday in Gallagher-Iba Arena.
