SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - No. 10 Derek Moore's major decision win over David Roberts in the 141-pound match was the highlight of UC Davis' 28-7 loss to Pac-10 rival Cal Poly at the Mustang's Mott Gym Friday evening. Marcos Orozco posted the only other win for the Aggies as UC Davis' season record fell to 7-9 overall and 4-5 in the Pac-10.

The Aggies got off to a rough start on Friday evening, dropping seven straight matches before Orozco took his 8-3 win by decision over Cal Poly's John Hanks at 125-pounds. In the following match, Omar Gaitan dropped a 13-5 major decision to Darrell Vasquez, the Pac-10's No. 2 ranked 133-pounder. Vasquez has gone undefeated in the Pac-10 and is ranked No. 4 nationally.

Unranked Jon Clark led the Pac-10's No. 6 Ryan Williams 3-2 in the third period, but Williams managed a two-point takedown with six seconds to go in the match to take the narrow 4-3 decision at 157-pounds. In the following 165-pound match-up, No. 3 Frank Richmond scored first on a takedown, but was ultimately upset by an unranked Rob Maxwell in a 7-5 decision.

In the 184-pound match-up, No. 6 Tyler Bernacchi was within one point of No. 3 Ryan Hasley with 1:45 left to wrestle in the third period. Hasley held onto the advantage and grabbed a riding time point to defeat Bernacchi in a 4-2 decision.

In the 141-pound match-up, Moore scored on a takedown and a near-fall early in the first period and did not look back. Moore, who is ranked No. 2 in the Pac-10, took an 18-6 major decision win over the No. 3 ranked David Roberts. Eliot Kelly, Broc Maffia and Jesse Padilla each lost their respective matches in a decision.



The Aggies will face Fresno State in their final dual of the season on Saturday evening in Fresno, Calif. The dual is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
