The Missouri wrestlers took their first loss of the season, 22-17 to No. 6 Lehigh in a match that was decided in the final bout of the night.

Missouri fell behind by as many as 15-points, but came back to lead following a five-bout win streak by Cody Greene (149), Brad Cielseki (157), Tyron Woodly (165), Ben Askren (174) and Matt Pell (184).

Askren is the only unbeaten starter on the Missouri team.

But Lehigh came back to win the final two bouts on the evening and hand the Tigers their first loss of the year.

The Tigers head to the Virginia Duals Friday and Saturday.

“After the first quarter, it was great team defense,” coach Kevin Giefe said.

Schaepherkoetter ended with 10 points. Ashley Dressler led the Bruins with 13. Rachel Jones had 11.

Rock Bridge now meets Booneville, a winner over Overly Tuesday, at 7 p.m. Friday in the tournament.
