STANFORD, Calif. – Wrestling in the first outdoor dual held on the Stanford campus, the Cardinal came from behind to win 17-16 over North Carolina, Saturday, in Stanford, Calif. The dual took place at football’s Fan Fest between Stanford Stadium and Cobb Track and Angell Field.

Both teams picked up five wins in the dual, but Stanford redshirt freshman heavyweight Nathan Butler’s major decision over North Carolina’s Josh Lehner won it for the Cardinal. Leading 2-0 after the first, Butler scored a reversal early in the second period before Lehner scored an escape. Butler than used a takedown and two near fall points at the end of the second to have an 8-1 advantage. He was awarded a point for stalling by Lehner in the third and finished with 3:08 of riding time.

Redshirt sophomore Zach Nevills, who wrestled up a weight at 197 pounds, put the Cardinal in position to win the dual with a 3-1 decision over Frank Abbondanza. Tied 1-1 late in the third period, Nevills secured a takedown with three seconds left to make the dual score 16-13 in favor of the Tar Heels.

Redshirt sophomore Jim Wilson, ranked 14th nationally, was also key in the win. The Lodi, Calif., native recorded an 11-3 major decision over Ethan Ramos at 165 pounds. He tallied three takedowns, two escapes, two near fall points and had 2:20 of riding time in the win.

True freshman Mason Pengilly and redshirt freshman Connor Schram also turned in wins for the Cardinal. Pengilly secured a 2-1 decision over Cody Karns at 125 pounds, having 1:28 of riding time in his advantage. Schram posted a 7-2 decision over Alex Rinaldi at 133 pounds.
