BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State University wrestling team evened its overall dual record for the 2004-05 season at 3-3 on Saturday (Dec. 11) night with a 22-15 victory over UC Davis. It was also the Broncos' first Pac-10 Conference dual of the season.

UC Davis lost its first dual of the season, falling to 2-1 overall and 2-1 in the Pac-10. The Aggies won four matches against the Broncos on Saturday night.

Boise State appeared on its way to an easy victory winning three of the first four matches and opening up a 12-3 lead over the visiting Aggies. Freshman Andrew Hochstrasser started the Broncos off with a technical fall win over Pancho Manriquez at 125 pounds, 17-2.

Scott Jorgensen followed Hochstrasser's win with a 9-4 decision over Derek Moore at 133 pounds, before Ben Cherrington recorded a major decision over Daniel Murphree, 17-6, at 149 pounds to give Boise State a nine point lead.

UC Davis came back to tie the dual at 12 points winning the next two matches including a pin by Frank Richmond over Boise State's Russell Brunson at 165 pounds.

The two teams traded decisions in the next two weight classes, before Boise State's K.C. Walsh and Eric Smith ended the dual with wins at the 197 pound and heavyweight classes, respectively.
