EDMOND (Jan. 15) – Garrett Steidley’s first-period fall and a trio of other bonus-point wins powered top-ranked Central Oklahoma to a 36-0 whitewashing of Colorado State-Pueblo Sunday afternoon at Hamilton Field House.
It was the first home dual in more than two months for the Bronchos, who posted their initial shutout of the season in staying perfect against the Thunderwolves (21-0) on Alumni Day. UCO improved to 7-1 with its 13th straight home win.
“We didn’t wrestle our best, but our guys grinded out some tough wins and that’s always good to see,” head coach Todd Steidley said. “We had a hard week of practice and that might have affected us a little.
“The bottom line is we need to get better. Today was another opportunity for us to do that and for the most part I thought we did. We just need to keep working.”
Garrett had the lone fall of the day, moving up from his normal 125-pound slot to 133 and getting the pin at the 2:50 mark after striking for an early takedown.
The Bronchos also got major decisions from 125 Studd Morris, 174 Anthony DesVigne and Hvy Shawn Streck.
