AMES (KWWL) -

The Iowa State wrestling team (7-4 overall, 1-2 Big 12) defeated No. 20 UNI (8-4 overall, 0-1 MAC), by a score of 23-12 on Friday as the Cyclone won six matches. The win marks Iowa State's 11th-straight over UNI dating back to 2004.  

Redshirt sophomore and former Waterloo East Star Kyven Gadson provided one of the highlights of the evening, as he got his first pin of the season in dual competition. Gadson, ranked No. 7 nationally at 197 pounds, stepped on the mat with Iowa State leading 4-3 and took control early of the match early against UNI's Blaize Cabell.
Already leading Cabell 12-2 midway through the second period, Gadson brought the crowd of nearly 8,000 Cyclone fans to their feet as he put Cabell to his back and got the pin in 4:27. The win moved Gadson to 17-2 on the year, including a 10-0 mark in dual competition.
Tanner Weatherman got back to his winning ways, dominating the first match of the night. Weatherman, ranked No. 20 nationally, defeated UNI's Cody Caldwell by major decision, 13-3. Caldwell is ranked No. 19 by W.I.N. Magazine. Weatherman racked up five takedowns and over three minutes of riding time in the victory.
No. 19 Michael Moreno brought the dual to an end at 165 pounds in similar fashion. The Urbandale, Iowa native won a 10-1 major decision over Panther wrestler Jarrett Jensen. Moreno scored four takedowns and had nearly four minutes of riding time. Then win was the 20th of the year for Moreno, who is the first Cyclone to reach the 20-win mark this season.
The two seniors in the Cyclone lineup also came away with victories in their last matches ever in Hilton Coliseum. Heavyweight Matt Gibson won a 5-1 decision over UNI's Blayne Beal in commanding fashion, accruing over four minutes of riding time.
Max Mayfield also won his Hilton Coliseum swan song with a 4-1 decision over UNI's Bart Reiter. Mayfield's decision made it a 19-9 Iowa State lead, giving the Cyclones added breathing room for the remainder of the dual.
