Ramiro Macias (SR/Delano, Calif.) defeated Skyler Bonestroo 3-2 in ultimate tiebreaker, helping the University of Jamestown men’s wrestling team to a 24-22 dual victory over Northwestern (Iowa) College Friday night at Harold Newman Arena.

The Jimmies took a 21-0 lead after the Red Raiders were open at 125 and 149, and Ramon Carillo getting a win at 133 after Manny Jaramillo was forced to forfeit due to injury after the first period. Antonio Ruiz (SR/West Valley, Utah) won a 10-6 decision at 141 and it appeared Jamestown was in control.

Northwestern came back to lead 22-21 with Blake Pomajzl winning an 11-2 decision over Jake Hamilton (FR/Colorado Springs, Colo.) at 157; Jake Francksen-Small winning 11-3 over Carston Toedter (FR/Atwater, Minn.) at 165; Austin Hendrickson winning a 13-4 decision over Gabe Juaregui-Diaz (JR/San Antonio, Texas) at 174; Luke Jenness pinning Thomas Ingraham (JR/Saratoga, Wyo.) in 1:53 at 184; and Bennet Sikkink winning a 14-2 decision over Elijah Ramos (FR/Honolulu, Hawaii) at 197.

At 285, Macias led 1-0 after two periods, but Bonestroo secured an escape to tie the match at 1 in the third, and the bout headed to overtime. In sudden victory, neither wrestler was able to secure a takedown and the match went to the 30-second ride-out periods. Macias gutted out an escape to go ahead 2-1, but Bonestroo answered with an escape of his own to send the match to ultimate tiebreaker.

With 22 seconds remaining, Macias had enough strength to manage one more escape for the winning point and give the Jimmies their first dual victory of the season.

Jamestown is scheduled to compete at the Doane University Open in Crete, Neb., on December 5.
