VESTAL, N.Y.— Senior 149-pound Donnie Vinson and senior 197-pound Nate Schiedel notched wins but it wasn’t enough as Binghamton wrestling (0-2) suffered a 30-7 defeat to No. 8 Cornell (1-0) Friday night from the Friedman Wrestling Center.

Vinson, No. 2 in the country in this week’s Amateur Wrestling News rankings, posted a 10-2 major decision over Ryan Dunphy to improve to 7-0 this season.

Schiedel, No. 8, scored a 6-3 decision over Billy George. He improved to 6-0.

Binghamton will remain in Ithaca after the match and return to the Cornell campus Saturday morning for the New York State Championship.
