Bastida's top-five win highlights ISU's 41-3 victory over Missouri

AMES, Iowa -- No. 5 Iowa State (13-2, 6-1 Big 12) dominated a limited No. 7 Missouri (10-4, 6-3 Big 12) lineup, 41-3, Sunday afternoon inside Hilton Coliseum.

Iowa State won six matches with bonus points, including David Carr's pin vs. Jeremy Jakowitsch at 165 pounds. It was the final home appearance for the illustrious Carr, who ended his amazing career with a perfect 67-0 dual record. MJ Gaitan (174) added a fall, and Evan Frost (133) and Casey Swiderski (149) each earned technical fall victories.

The marquee match was at 285 where a pair of unbeatens in No. 3 Yonger Bastida (19-0) of Iowa State and No. 5 Zach Elam (21-0) of Missouri went to battle. The match was all Bastida, as the Cyclone established control early with a first-period takedown and added takedowns in each of the final two periods in an impressive 13-4 major decision win over Elam.

Iowa State held a 27-3 advantage in takedowns.

No. 7 Evan Frost used five takedowns and a 4-point near fall in a dominating technical fall (19-3) over Drew Stanfield at 133 pounds. Frost, now 15-3 on the season, had three takedowns in the first period and then put the match out of reach when he turned Stanfield for back points in period two.

At 141 pounds, No. 9 Anthony Echemendia used a third-period takedown with 22 seconds left to survive a thrilling 10-9 victory against Josh Edmond. Echemendia fell into a 7-0 hole in the first period when Edmond locked up Echemendia for a toss which resulted in a takedown and 4-point near fall.

But Echemendia kept chipping away, later recording a takedown in the first period, and Edmond kept backing off, giving up two points on stalling calls. Down 9-7 in the third period, Echemendia came up with the decisive takedown late in the match and was able to stay on top for the huge come-from-behind win. Echemendia improved to 16-4 on the year with the win.

No. 6 Casey Swiderski wasted little time in his 20-4 technical fall triumph vs. Zeke Seltzer at 149 pounds. Swiderski had six takedowns to raise his season record to 17-2.

Cody Chittum, ranked No. 14 nationally at 157 pounds, tallied three takedowns, one in each period, in an 11-4 win over Mizzou's James Conway.

Second-ranked Carr ended his match with a fall at the 1:42 mark against Jakowitsch, who was filling in for top-ranked Keegan O'Toole at 165 pounds. Carr's fifth takedown led to the pin and increased his career record to 112-4 heading into his final postseason.

No. 19 MJ Gaitan already had a huge lead before recording the pin at the 5:32 mark in his 174-pound-bout win over Ellis Pfleger. Gaitan put Pfleger on his back twice, notching a 4-point near fall in the second period and again in the third en route to his seventh fall of the season. Gaitan moves to 16-5 on the season.

A second-period takedown in the final seconds by Julien Broderson was pivotal in his 7-2 win vs. Jesse Cassatt at 197 pounds. Broderson evened his season record to 7-7 in the victory.
