HENDERSONVILLE — Jacob Shirley pinned his opponent at 165 and Zeke Hunt won by Technical Fall but Cumberland forfeited three weight classes in a 34-17 loss Saturday against Middle Tennessee at Beech High School.
Shirley pinned Everett Colbert at 165 at 6:59 while Hunt posted a 19-0 victory over Rakim Talley at 174. Jake Williams also picked up an 11-7 Decision over Eric Feuerbacher at 141 and Ethny Holbrook registered a 12-5 Decision against Gabe Gamadamis at 149.
The Bulldogs forfeited at 125, 133 and 157 because of injuries, but Hunt’s Tech Fall pulled CU within 18-17 with three matches remaining. But the Blue Raiders won all three of the final matches, including Jonathan Roberts pinning Aric Fernandez at 5:26 after Fernandez built a 13-2 advantage at 184.
