    Ashley Sword pinned Breija Macera.

    OKLAHOMA CITY ? Oklahoma City University took the last four matches, but fell to defending national champion Cumberlands (Ky.) 24-19 in the first women?s college wrestling dual in school and state history.

    The Stars fell behind 21-5 before Ashley Sword broke through with a pin at 67 kilograms. Sword won the first women's match in a dual for OCU.

    Sword, a junior from West Palm Beach, Fla., took the first period by scoring the last points in that period. Sword broke down Breija Gallo-Macera with nine seconds remaining in the second period. Sword is ranked third in the nation at 67.

    ?I?m so excited,? Sword said. ?Getting ready for the match, I tried to go through my moves in my head. As my blood started pumping, I got more into the flow.?

    At 72, Melissa Simmons of OCU knocked off Paige Rife 2-0, 2-1. Then the Stars? Lacey Novinska came from behind to win the 82-kilo match.

    ?I was proud of Lacey Novinska,? OCU coach Archie Randall said. ?Carrie Clark wrestled against a girl who outweighed her.?

    Novinska, a junior from Fennimore, Wis., dropped the first period, then won the second. In the third period, she trailed until she scored four points by exposing her opponent?s back and getting a takedown in the final 20 seconds.

    At 95, Carrie Clark of the Stars forced a third period by winning the second period on an early pushout. In the third, she won 3-0 on a pushout and a two-point exposure of her opponent?s back for the victory and the final margin in the dual.

    In a matchup of the top two-ranked wrestlers at 44, No. 1-ranked Melissa Girard of Cumberlands prevailed over Lene Wood 1-1, 2-2 by scoring the final points of each period.

    ?We figured we could do well in the final four weights,? Randall said. ?What we were trying to do was get a win in the top half of the weights. Every match was close. Winning at the beginning of the season is not as important as winning in February and March.?
