TEMPE, Ariz.—The Arizona State wrestling team (3-1) opened the 2015-16 home slate with a 21-14 victory over Northern Colorado (0-1) on Thursday at Wells Fargo Arena.

Opening the match at 125 pounds, the Sun Devils dropped the opening bouts before sophomore Robbie Mathers got ASU on the board with a 12-8 decision win over Sonny Espinosa, cutting the team deficit to 8-3.

Senior Matt Kraus picked up four points for the Sun Devils with a 12-3 major decision, his second major of the season, over Timmy Box before the Bears picked up a win at 157 pounds to stretch their lead over the Sun Devils to 11-7.

After the intermission, ASU won four of the final five bouts, starting with sophomore Jacen Petersen taking a 9-4 win over Joe Grable at 165 pounds and cutting the deficit to one.

Freshman Zachary Smith gave ASU its first lead of the night as he picked up a 6-4 decision win over Horacio Vialpando, and redshirt senior Blake Stauffer made it 16-11 in favor of ASU with a 3-1 decision win over Dylan Gabel.

After dropping a close decision at 197 pounds, and with ASU holding a two-point lead over the Bears, freshman heavyweight Tanner Hall used a 16-0 tech fall victory over Jack Kuck to clinch the 21-14 victory. The tech fall is both Hall and ASU’s first on the year.

Mathers, Petersen, Stauffer, and Hall all remain undefeated on the year with individual records of 4-0.

Up next, the Sun Devils trek to Champaign, Ill., on Sunday to take on SIU-Edwardsville at 11 a.m. MT/Noon CT and Illinois at 12:30 p.m. MT/1:30 p.m. CT at Huff Hall. Updates throughout both bouts will be available on Twitter by following @ASUWrestling.
