VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton wrestling dropped three matches at the 10th Annual Journeymen/ASICS Northeast Duals, held Saturday at the Edward F. McDonough Sports Complex at Hudson Valley Community College.

The Bearcats (0-5) lost to Army (16-15), RV Rutgers (30-9) and No. 6 Illinois (39-10).

Binghamton’s nationally-ranked senior duo of 149-pound Donnie Vinson and 197-pound Nate Schiedel each went 3-0 to highlight BU’s performance.

Vinson, 10-0 and ranked No. 1 in the nation by Amateur Wrestling News, collected two major decisions and a decision. He opened with a narrow 1-0 win over 20th-ranked Daniel Young of Army. Vinson then posted a 10-2 major decision against Rutgers and finished his day with an 8-0 win against Illinois.

Schiedel also remained unbeaten (9-0) with three wins and in the process, reached the 100-win plateau. Ranked No. 7 in both AWN and Intermat polls, Schiedel recorded a pin, technical fall and a decision. He opened with a 9-4 decision against Army and then scored a third-period technical fall against Rutgers. Schiedel closed out his day with a first-period pin against Illinois.

The Bearcats’ closest match came in the opener against Army as each team won five bouts but the Black Knights were awarded the win on the fifth tiebreak critieria (37-36 in total points scored). In addition to Vinson and Schiedel, BU received wins from senior 133-pound Derek Steeley (7-2), sophomore 141-poiund Joe Bonaldi (3-1) and sophomore heavyweight Tyler Deuel (3-0).
