BUIES CREEK, N.C. - The Arizona State University dropped a hotly contested match to the Bloomsburg Huskies on Saturday in the first half of a double-header in Buies Creek, N.C.

Bloomsburg 18, Bloomsburg 16 

Sophomore 125-pounder Dalton Miller got dropped his second consecutive of the season to the Huskies' Sean Boylan in a 4-2 decision to give Bloomsburg the 3-0 lead early. 

Bloomsburg followed that with a Nick Wilcox pin over Shane McGough just 1:28 into the match to go ahead 9-0 just two bouts into the dual but Matt Kraus answered with a 13-5 major decision over Matt Rappo for his first victory as a Sun Devil to bring ASU back within 9-4.

Nathan Hoffer remained perfect on the season as he downed Josh Roosa, 5-2, and ASU inched closer in making the score 9-7

The Huskies answered in the form of No. 6 Frank Hickman, who earned a 9-4 decision over Codey Combs (9-4) at 157 pounds to pave the way for a Josh Veltre decision (9-7) over the Sun Devils' Parker Madl to give Bloomsburg the 15-7 through six matches.

ASU's upper weight classes answered the call, though, ripping off three consecutive victories at 174, 184 and 197 pounds to make things interesting heading into the heavyweight bout

Redshirt freshman Blake Stauffer continued his impressive start as a Sun Devil, shutting out Chris Smith 6-0 and that allowed Kevin Radford to put ASU back in the lead with a 10-4 decision over Andre Petroski.

Jake Meredith made things in the day's most exciting match, upsetting No. 14 Richard Perry in a high-scoring 18-12 decision to put ASU up 16-15 for its first lead of the contest

However, the biggest upset of the day came as Justin Grant was able to take the decision over No. 8 Levi Cooper in the heavyweight match, giving three points to the Huskies and sealing the deal with the 18-16 victory.
