ThunderWolves lose close matches, fall to Fort Hays St.

#17 Fort Hays State 27, CSU-Pueblo 6

The Pack was on the short end of five decisions decided by three points or less as the ThunderWolves lost a tough dual 27-6 to 17th-ranked Fort Hays State.

The Pack netted two wins, one coming from Tony Chavarria (So., Pueblo West, Colo.), the eighth-ranked 197-pounder in the nation, scored a 7-5 decision over Steven Kyler for the Pack's first win of the night.  Chavarria improved to 15-7 with the win.

Louie DeSantis (Sr., Escondido, Calif.), who wrestled at 149 pounds, a weight where he's been a perfect 2-0 this season, improved to 3-0 at 149 and 12-10 overall after a sudden victory win over Levi Younkin by a 3-1 score.  Younkin knocked DeSantis out of the RMAC Championships last season.

But the Pack lost five other matches in slim decisions, making the match break for the Tigers.  CSU-Pueblo didn't allow any pins on the night.

The ThunderWolves, now 7-5 overall and 3-2 in RMAC duals, will travel to Golden this weekend for the Colorado Mines Open, the final tournament of the season before the RMAC Championships.
