Ryan Wrestlers Upset No.1 Baylor, 38-26

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - by B.B. Branton

NASHVILLE --On the strength of four pins and two major decisions, host and No.3 Father Ryan defeated No.1 Baylor, 38-26, here Thursday night.

Recording pins for Ryan were Trey Chalifoux (113), Chris Wesnofske (132), Michael Eckart (138) and Ben Stacey (220), while Baylor pins were credited to Bryson Popp (160), Ryan Parker (182) and Will Thomas (285).

Starting at 182, Baylor (7-2) won three of the first five matches to lead 14-9 before Ryan won the next five weights with 11 bonus points for a 35-14 advantage.

After Baylor's Tate Robinson won 5-3 at 145, the Red Raiders needed falls in the final three matches to tie it 35-35. Ryan would have claimed the team win on total matches won, 8-6.

But Baylor won only two of the final three with a pin (Popp) and a regular decision.

Missing in Action: Baylor state champion Michael Murphy (113) was out with an injury as was Ryan's Eli King (106).
