Iowa Sneaks Past Wisconsin 19-18 On Criteria

Iowa barely beats Wisconsin, wow! This dual was all around insane and would come down to a Tony Cassioppi win at heavyweight, which seemingly a lot of duals have.

Starting from the top Spencer Lee takes care of business as expected and grabs a pin over #6 Eric Barnett to get his 6th consecutive fall and 48th straight win.

At 149 was one of the premier matches an Gomez would prevail over Max Murin 5-3 winning somewhat convincingly.

165 was fireworks and high action all throughout. Dean Hamiti sneaks past Patrick Kennedy 4-3 evading a takedown at the end. We should see these two wrestle many more times in their careers so that should be very fun.

Tyler Dow pinning #8 Abe Assad is where the tides turned in this dual, after the first period pin Amos would follow up with a shut out leaving the dual in the hands of 3x All American Trent Hillger.

Hillger who was 0-6 against Cassioppi coming into the match was fighting against the odds already. He wrestled tough and kept the match very close but Cassioppi would secure a takedown in the third period along with a rideout to tie the dual 18-18 and win on criteria (total match points).
