SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – No. 13-ranked Minnesota State (7-2, 4-0 NSIC) got back-to-back pins at 133 and 141 pounds helping the Mavericks to a 21-19 dual victory over No. 19 Augustana (7-5, 2-2 NSIC) on Saturday night.

TJ North came out the gates firing to give the Vikings an early 3-0 lead against the Mavericks. North won a 5-3 decision over David Demo, who is ranked sixth in the country at 125 pounds.

Minnesota State took a 6-3 lead after the 133-pound bout when Alphonso Vruno pinned Augustana’s Jeremiah Peterson late in the second period. The Mavericks pushed their lead to 12-6 quickly in the 141-pound bout when Drew Lexvold pinned Brandon Charbonneau in 1:05.

MSU’s lead was cut to three at 12-9 after Nate Herda won by forfeit in the 149-pound bout. Shawn Hatlestad tied the dual at 12 picking up an 8-2 decision over Sawyer Hoffman at 157 pounds.

Minnesota State answered in the 165-pound bout with MSU’s Cody Quinn, who is ranked third in the nation individually, won a 5-0 decision over Parker Swanson, giving the Mavericks a 15-12 lead.

MSU extended its lead to 21-12 with back-to-back wins at 174 and 184 pounds. In the 174-pound bout, sixth-ranked Brendan Eichmann won an 8-3 decision over Tim Weber before fifth-ranked Aaron Norgren picked up a 4-1 decision over Sean Derry.

Jayd Docken, ranked sixth in the country at 197 pounds, brought the Vikings to within five (21-16) heading into the final bout earning an 11-2 major decision over Nathan Haynes. 

Brian Schultz earned a 7-3 decision over Corby Running in the heavyweight bout but it would not be enough as the Vikings would fall to the Mavericks 21-19.
