AMES (KWWL) -
Iowa State (7-2, 1-1 Big 12) defeated Rutgers (9-3, 6-0 EIWA) by a score of 22-13 Friday night in Hilton Coliseum. The Cyclones won seven of the 10 matches in tonight's dual against the Scarlet Knights.
Kyven Gadson started things off with a bang at the 197-pound weight class, working to a major decision over Rutgers' Hayden Hrymack, 14-6. The No. 2-ranked grappler from Waterloo came out aggressive, scoring two takedowns in the first period and lifting himself to an early 5-2 lead. After a quiet second stanza, Gadson scored on a reversal to start the third and added two takedowns to seal the victory.
The win extends Gadson's dual win streak to 23 consecutive matches, dating back to last season. The redshirt-junior improves to 16-2 on the season and is 8-0 in dual competition.
An active first period helped 2013 All-American Michael Moreno to his 19th victory of the season. Moreno converted an early takedown into a two-point nearfall and added a second takedown to take a 6-2 at the end of the first period. From there, the Urbandale native added a reversal in the second stanza and a takedown in the third to earn an 11-5 victory.
Moreno's 19 victories are good for second-most on the team behind Lelund Weatherspoon (21). The win moves him to 6-2 in duals.
The Cyclones return to the mat next Friday, Jan. 24, as the team travels to Stillwater, Okla. to take on No. 5 Oklahoma State.
