Coe (3-0, 2-0 IIAC) won the first seven matches of the night and scored bonus points in five of them.
The Beavers got on the board when second-ranked Brian Broll got an early second-period escape to edge Ryan Sheldon, 1-0.
The Kohawks, who placed third at the NCAA Tournament a year ago, had ranked wrestlers at 165, 174, 197 and 285.
