CORVALLIS, Ore. - Tommy Schurkamp and Urijah Faber each posted wins to give UC Davis an early lead against Oregon State on Saturday afternoon, but the Beavers rebounded the rest of the way, holding on for a 22-16 Pacific-10 Conference wrestling dual.

UC Davis dropped to 3-4 overall and 0-3 in conference action, heading into Saturday evening's dual against Portland State. The Beavers improved to 6-5 overall and 4-1 in the Pac-10.

The win wasn't secured until Oregon State's Jason Lovell beat Michael Clarkston 11-0 at 197 pounds in the match's final bout.

Trailing 3-0 after ninth-ranked Andy Bowlby beat the Aggies' Jason Paul at heavyweight, UC Davis tied the match when Schurkamp beat Michael Delaney 8-4 at 125 pounds. Fourteenth-ranked Faber then earned his second consecutive win this weekend with 12-3 major decision against Oregon State's Tim Norman at 133 pounds, a win that put the Aggies on top 7-3.

Victories by Mike Unger (141) and Tony Hook (149) gave the Beavers a 10-7 lead before Jeremiah Jarvis tied it with a hard-fought 17-13 win over Brian Duhrkoop at 157.

Ronnie Silva had UC Davis' final win of the night, scoring an injury default victory against Dan Pitsch just over a minute into their matchup at 184 pounds. That helped the Aggies close to within 18-16 going into the final match. Lovell then scored a major decision to clinch the team win.

UC Davis' match against Portland State at Hillsboro High School on Saturday evening is at 7:30.
