EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Mizzou Wrestling opened the 2015-16 season in shinning fashion on Friday evening, defeating SIU Edwardsville, 36-7. The Tigers began the dual strong, jumping out to a 15-0 lead with three major decisions to open the night. Redshirt freshman 165-pounder Daniel Lewis (Blue Springs, Mo.) and redshirt sophomore 184-pounder Willie Miklus (Altoona, Iowa) both picked up pins on the night to earn six points for Mizzou.

Redshirt sophomore 125-pounder Barlow McGhee got the Tigers started on the right foot, posting seven takedowns in a 16-5 major decision win over Troy Gassaway. Following McGhee, redshirt junior 133-pounder Zach Synon earned a major decision win over Dakota Leach, 10-2. Redshirt junior 141-pounder Matt Manley (Perry, Okla.) led Angelo Silvestro 11-4 late in the third period before a near-fall and riding time gave Manley a 16-4 major decision and Mizzou its third consecutive major decision to start the dual.

Redshirt junior Lavion Mayes (Masoutah, Ill.) led John Fahy 7-6 in the third period before an escape and a takedown pushed the match out of reach. Riding time gave the win to Mayes, 11-6. Grabbing the first fall of the season for #Tigerstyle was Lewis, who pinned Eric Travers at 0:58. Last season as a redshirt, Lewis earned pins in 15 of 21 wins.

Following the pin from Lewis, the Miklus brothers picked up back-to-back victories with ease. First up was the younger Miklus, redshirt freshman 174-pounder Tim Miklus (Altoona, Iowa), who defeated Clayton Bass by way of a major decision, 15-5. T. Mkilus fell behind 2-0 early in the first period, but roared back to take a commanding 7-2 lead by the end of the period, soaring to the 15-5 major decision. Older brother W. Miklus was next, and he did his best to outdo younger brother and pinned Derek Nagel in the first period at 2:49, earning six points for the black and gold.

Junior J'den Cox (Columbia, Mo.) earned the final win of the night for the Tigers, picking up a win over Jake Tindle by way of technical fall, 25-10. Tindle was the only NCAA qualifier a year a year ago for SIU Edwardsville.

More than 30 #TigerStyle wrestlers will hit the mat again tomorrow at the Lindenwood Open in St. Charles, Mo. The tournament will begin at 9 a.m.
