Junior Joe Klinkel and freshman Matt Sefcik each posted key wins for Buena Vista, while the Beavers also used the benefit of three open weights, to top visiting Simpson College inside of Siebens Fieldhouse on Wednesday night, 28-23.
The dual started at 157 pounds and the Beavers trailed 15-0 heading into Klinkel's 184-pound bout. He jumped out to a 10-2 lead after two periods and went on to give BVU key bonus points at the time with a 14-4 major decision over Tanner Erdman.
After the Storm forfeited to sixth-ranked Brian Broll at 197 pounds to get the Beavers back within 15-10, it was Sefick, who made his debut this past Saturday, fighting off his back early in the second period with a reversal and a pin, giving BVU its first lead at 16-15.
Following back-to-back forfeits by Simpson at 125 and 133 pounds, respectively, Buena Vista was able to secure the win.
Buena Vista improves to 2-1 overall (1-1 IIAC) and will take the mat again on Saturday when it travels to Mt. Vernon, Iowa, to take part in the Cornell Matman Invite, beginning at 9:00am.
