SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- The Novachkov brothers -- Boris and Filip -- each won a pair of matches to solidify their spots in the starting lineup, highlighting Cal Poly's Green vs. Gold intrasquad wrestling match Saturday afternoon in Mott Gym.
Boris Novachkov, who redshirted last year after a 15-6 record as a freshman, earned a fall and an 8-5 decision against Brandyn Rocha to anchor his position at 133 pounds.
Filip Novachkov, an NCAA qualifier a year ago and 23-9 overall, posted 16-3 and 19-4 decisions over Andy Wagner at 141 pounds.
Several other weight classes were locked up as well with Mustang wrestlers winning twice against their teammates.
At 125, Micah Ferguson was a 9-7 and 11-9 winner over Jake Tanenbaum while Eric Maldonado was an 8-6 and 10-2 winner over Nick Fisher at 149.

At 165, Steven Vasquez and Travis Rasmussen traded low-scoring decisions before Vasquez locked up the position with a 12-4 major decision.
At 184, Tyler Holt edged Ben Crosby 3-2, but Crosby returned the favor with a 7-5 decision. A third bout will be held early next week.
The same holds true at 285 as Lenny Romero beat Jim Powers 8-3 in the first meeting, but Powers edged Romero 3-2 in overtime in the second matchup.
Finally, at 157, NCAA All-American and two-time Pac-10 champion Chase Pami beat Geoffrey Doss with a 12-4 major decision in the opening bout. In the second meeting, Pami trailed 4-2 when he was forced to default due to injury.
