Panther wrestlers top Eastern Michigan 25-14

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -  After a couple early setbacks, the UNI wrestling team rallied past Eastern Michigan 24-15 to open MAC Conference competition.

The Panthers opened up with 125 pounder Dylan Peters picking up a forfeit, but the next couple weights were rough on UNI. Eastern Michigan would go in to the lead with a pair of falls at 133 and 141.

Gunnar Wolfensperger helped UNI bounce back at 149 after scoring an 8-4 decision over Nicholas Barber. That sparked a run for the Panthers, as they finished the meet winning 6 of the final 7 matches.

After spending much of the early season on the road, Sunday's meet marked the start of a 4 match home stretch for UNI. The Panthers host Northern Illinois on Friday night.
