Bronco Wrestlers Dominate Davis 38-3

Boise State's wrestlers put on a clinic tonight in disposing of Cal-Davis 38-3 in Bronco Gymnasium. The Broncos won the first nine matches en route to the Pac-10 victory.

The Boise State wrestlers (14-3 overall, 5-0 in league) maintained their perfect Pac-10 Conference record tonight with a surprisingly easy 38-3 win over Cal-Davis (7-6 and 3-4) tonight in Bronco Gymnasium.  Coach Greg Randall's squad, ranked 11th by USA Today/InterMat, captured nine straight matches to keep their perfect 6-0 home record this season.


#4 Andrew Hochstrasser (28-2) won a major decision over Brandon Low at 133 pounds to open the match.  Senior Cory Fish (14-7) downed Bryan Osuna of Davis 12-6.  #17 freshman Jason Chamberlain (15-6) followed with a fall at the 2:23 mark to give Boise State a 13-0 lead and the rout was on.


#6 Adam Hall used a seven point third period to score a 13-5 major decision at 157 pounds over Joey Wilson.  Bronco senior Tyler Sherfey (20-8) outpointed Dustin Noack at 165 pounds by an 8-3 score.  Highly regarded Tyler Bernacchi of Cal-Davis was injured in the third period and was forced to default for medical reasons, giving the match to #13 Nate Lee, now 12-3 on the season.  Sophomore Kirk Smith (29-1) recorded Boise State's second pin of the night by taking it to Jon Clark in the second period.


#5-ranked sophomore Brent Chriswell (7-1) scored a two-point take down of Abe Otrambo with just 13 seconds remaining to get the 6-4 victory.  Sam Zylstra (9-12) then recorded a 6-2 decision over Ricky Alcala for a 38-0 Bronco lead.


#18 Marcos Orozco overcame a game effort by Boise State sophomore Alan Bartelli (14-13) to give the Aggies their only victory of the night at 125 pounds.


The Broncos conclude their home season tomorrow afternoon in the Bronco Gym by hosting Stanford.  The match is scheduled for 2 and will be the final home appearance by the Boise State seniors.
