Columbus, OH (WDAY TV) - The NDSU wrestling team didn't have Minnesota on the schedule this season, but, as fate would have it the two met today in the quarterfinals of the NWCA national duals.
The Gophers showed why they're ranked number one. They were up 22-0 before NDSU picked up its first win.
Third ranked Steven Monk gets a reverse late in the third to take a 5-4 lead. He adds a near fall for the 8-4 win.
At 197 pounds a pair of former West Fargo Packer teammates squared off. Scott Schiller, ranked 4th in the country, thinks he has a take down, but his good buddy Tyler Lehmann ends up on top for two points to tie the match at 4 in the third. Schiller then got the escape to take the lead back.
Moments later, Schiller who suffered his first loss last week, takes down Lehmann for a 7-4 lead. The Golden Gopher wins it, 8-5.
Minnesota wins it, 35-3. Earlier, the Bison knocked off 19th ranked Chattanooga, 28-10.
