Two overtime wins for Central Michigan and a pair of one-point wins in regulation made the difference for the Chippewas in a 21-13 victory over Kent State Sunday afternoon at the M.A.C. Center. The Golden Flashes trailed by just two points (15-13), before CMU ended the dual with back-to-back overtime wins at 197 and heavyweight.
"They're a better team than us right now and we've got to figure ways to close that margin in the next two weeks," Head Coach Jim Andrassy said. "There were a lot of close matches and our guys fought hard."
The Chippewas, who are ranked as high as sixth in national polls, claimed their 11th MAC regular season title in 12 years.
The Golden Flashes will get their shot at redemption March 6-7 at the MAC Tournament in Mount Pleasant.
