Andrew Feldman put Wilkes ahead to stay with a win by fall in
2:57 over Ethan Bucarey at 285 pounds. That victory gave the Colonels a 12-6 advantage. Shaun Farnham followed at 125 pounds by pinning Mark Eilertsen in 0:48 to up the Wilkes lead to 18-6. Josh Pauling then scored an 8-3 win by decision over Matt Bradshaw at 133 to give his team a 21-6 edge.
