VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton wrestling (9-6-1) lost to American (7-6) 21-16 Thursday night in the West Gym. The Eagles won 6 of the 10 bouts.

Senior 174-pound Josh Patterson, ranked 13th in the country, earned a :20 second pin over American's Phillip Barreiro - and in the process became the program's all-time wins leader. With his 113th career victory, Patterson surpasses the mark set by former NCAA Division III national champion and three-time All-American Mark Gumble (1984-88). The reigning All-American is 113-29 in his four-year career, including an 18-5 record this season (10-0 in duals).

"Josh has done a lot for this program," head coach Pat Popolizio said. "He's put our program on the map and it's a great accomplishment for him."

Sophomore 165-pound Matt Kaylor also picked up a Binghamton victory with a 20-11 major decision to improve to 27-14 overall. Junior heavyweight Corey Waite is 28-13 overall after he picked up a decision and freshman 184-pound Nate Schiedel is now 20-6 overall (13-2 duals) after he posted a 7-6 win.

American was able to get the advantage with wins at 133 and 141 as BU's Tyler Malmberg lost on riding time and Anwar Goeres was defeated in overtime.

Binghamton heads to Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park to face Boston University and Ithaca on Sunday.
