11/21/15 UNCP Goes 1-2 at Wolfpack Duals

CARY – Jake Smith, Blaze Shade and Mikey Thomas each finished with unblemished days on the mat for the UNC Pembroke wrestling team as the Braves registered a 1-2 record at the Wolfpack Duals on Saturday afternoon at Cary Academy.

The Braves dropped a 23-15 decision to sixth-ranked (NAIA) Campbellsville in their opening dual of the day, before sixth-ranked (NCAA DI) NC State stayed unbeaten with a 32-9 win over the Black & Gold. UNCP would rebound in its final dual of the day by turning back No. 13 (NAIA) Cumberland by a 26-21 outcome.

Shade and Thomas each walked away from the event with three wins in as many bouts, while Smith went 2-0, including a second-period (4:00) pin of Cumberland's Austin Meyn in the nightcap. Shade tacked up a pair of major decisions to his resume, while Thomas finished with a major decision as well.

Campbellsville started the match with three-straight bonus-point victories to forge a 14-0 advantage on the team scoreboard, and led 20-4 after 16th-ranked L.J. Henderson's 2-1 victory in double overtime over Faris Teia in the 165-pount matchup. Shade and Mikey Thomas each registered major decisions at 174 and 184 pounds, respectively, to trim the team deficit back to 20-12, but Evan Decker sealed the outcome for the Tigers with a 3-1 sudden victory over Brach Walker at 197 pounds.

NC State proved victorious in five of the first six individual bouts, including four bonus-point wins, to stake claim to a 24-3 lead and secure the team victory. Shade and Thomas each registered wins via decision to make it respectable, before the Wolfpack closed out the matchup with major decision victories at 197 and 285 pounds.

Cumberland turned in bonus-point wins at 125 (technical fall) and 133 pounds (pin) to grab an early 11-0 lead on the Braves, but UNCP stormed back to take the lead on the shoulders of consecutive pins by Jake Smith and Eric Milks at 141 and 149 pounds, respectively. Nate Croley gave the Bulldogs a short-lived 16-15 lead following a major decision at 165 pounds, but the Black & Gold chalked up four-straight wins, including bonus-point triumphs from both Faris Teia (165 pounds) and Shade, to clinch the victory.

The Braves will be back in action again on Sunday when they split their squad and head to a pair of open tournaments. A partial squad will head to Raleigh for the NC State-hosted Wolfpack Open, while the remainder of the team will trek to Bristol, Tenn., for the King Open.
