NORFOLK, Va. - Scott Festejo earned a pin at 133-pounds and Old Dominion University wrestling knocked off No. 18 Iowa State 21-16 Sunday afternoon at the Ted Constant Center.

ODU moves to 4-1 in dual meets this season while the Cyclones drop to 0-3 on the year.

The match started at 125, where Iowa State's Ryak Finch gave ISU their only lead of the match with an 8-2 decision over Eric Dunnet.

At 133, Shayden Terukina got the first takedown, but it was all Festejo from there, as he built a lead and was able to turn Terukina for the pin with a minute left in the third period.

Justin LaValle delivered a 6-2 decision over RJ Hallman before ISU got another win with a 3-1 sudden victory decision at 149 for Joey Cozart.

No. 14 John Nicholson had control from the get-go at 157, dominating in a 23-8 technical fall.

Andrew Sorenson won a tight match at 165 over Tristan Warner, 6-4.

In a matchup featuring a pair of top-10 wresters, No. 10 Te Edwards knocked off No. 7 Chris Spangler 5-4 by earning the riding time point.

Boaz Beard defeated Billy Curling at 184 but Joe Budi put together an 11-0 major decision over Cole Shafer to clinch the team victory for ODU.

Matt Gibson won the final match of the night at 285, with a 13-1 major decision over Matt Tourdot.

The announced crowd of 1,526 is a school record.
