A late scoring surge by the wrestling team was not enough to defeat No. 10 Northern Iowa on Saturday. Central Michigan lost 25-14 in Iowa, dropping to 2-1 in Mid-American Conference play. "We just have to be better at staying off our back and getting in those situations where we give up pins," said head coach Tom Borrelli. Freshman Corey Keener lost by 9-6 decision at 125-pounds, giving UNI the early 3-0 advantage. Borrelli said Keener battled through injuries recently, but hopes he will return to his early season form in which he had a lot of success. "He wrestled a quality opponent," Borrelli said.
