Home Sports Bulldogs Lose Close Dual Against York

By Erik Cumley


It was a tough Thursday night for the Concordia Bulldogs as they lost to York college 27-15. 

Four total Bulldogs got a win with the highlight going to freshman Jacob Telles winning in dominant fashion. Telles would get the pin in the second period but not before racking up 13 points against York’s freshman Jakavion Williams. 

Freshman Jeaven Scdoris also got the win 15-9, along with Tavoris Smith scoring 7-4, and a close win from freshman Timothy Huber scoring 6-5.

Telles’ overall record is now 26-10 while being 9-3 in duals this season. Telles opened tonight’s match aggressively, taking down Williams and taking him to his back within the first two minutes. Williams was able to fight off his back but with twenty seconds left on the clock, Telles was able to get Williams to his back again. In the second period, Telles escaped and took Williams down again, this time for the last time gaining the pin with 33 seconds left on the clock.

Timothy Huber won his match in close fashion 6-5 over senior Derreck Samudio. In the first period, no one came away with any points. That would not last long as Huber was able to get away from bottom at the start of the second period. 

Samudio would get a takedown over Huber. However, Huber would escape again in the final minute of the second period. At the start of the third period, Samudio would escape but it wasn’t enough as Huber would get two takedowns and that was enough to secure the win.

Head coach Levi Calhoun  was happy with the effort and liked the way they wrestled.

“Our guys work hard, and the effort is always there. Our guys are going to go out there and scrap no matter what and I’m super happy with how hard our guys wrestled,” Calhoun said.

The last time Concordia and York wrestled in a dual, it was the season opener for the Bulldogs, they lost that dual 30-19. The Bulldogs are a better team from the beginning of the season.

“Definitely a better outcome,” Calhoun said. “Our guys have gotten better at wrestling and we’re a better team than what we were back then.”

The Bulldogs’ next and final challenge before the Great Plains Athletic Conference tournament will be the Morningside College Dave Edmonds Open. Preparation for this tournament will be the same as always for the Bulldogs.

“Preparation is the same as always, just getting back in the room tomorrow and fixing some little stuff and just preparing mentally for it,” Calhoun said.

The Bulldogs will travel to Sioux City, Iowa for the Morningside College Dave Edmonds open. The tournament is scheduled for Feb. 6 start time is 9am.
