    WINNIPEG, Manitoba — For her second goal of the night against Australia, U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe channeled Lionel Messi.

    Rapinoe dribbled the ball before her long, low shot breezed past diving Matildas keeper Melissa Barbieri.

    “I was doing my best Messi impression,” Rapinoe laughed, before adding: “A much slower version.”

    NMHU Sports Information

    Former New Mexico Highlands wrestler Easton Hargrave recently took eighth at 85 kilograms at the 2015 UWW University National Greco-Roman Wrestling Tournament the last weekend of May in Akron, Ohio.

    He finished with a 2-3 record.

    After a 19-11 technical fall loss to Konner Witt, Hargrave rebounded by pinning Andrew Thomas in only 33 seconds.

    The 33-second pin was the fastest pin for the tournament in the weight class and one of only three falls in less than a minute.
