Patterson brothers each win twice to lead Bearcats

LEWISBURG, Pa.-- Binghamton wrestling defeated Princeton 36-6 before losing to host Bucknell 27-8 in a tri-meet Saturday afternoon from Davis Gym. The Bearcats won eight of 10 bouts to earn the team's second win against Princeton in the last eight days. Bucknell then turned the tables on Binghamton, winning eight of 10 matches.

Sophomore 149-pound Nate Patterson (Ontario, N.Y.) and his younger brother, freshman Josh Patterson (Ontario, N.Y.) each won twice for the Bearcats. Nate posted a 10-1 major decision against Princeton and added a 9-1 major decision against Bucknell. Josh moved up to 184 pounds and pinned his Princeton opponent in 2:23 before earning an 11-3 major decision against Bucknell. He improved to 7-2 overall, 4-1 in duals.

In the Princeton match, BU collected three pins and another technical fall. Freshman Mike Kleeman (Mt. Sinai, N.Y.) needed just 1:13 to pin his opponent at 125. Freshman 141-pound Brandon Toro-Segarra (Brentwood, N.Y.) scored a fall in just 1:31. At 133, freshman Kareem Naguib (Clifton Park, N.Y.) produced a 17-2 technical fall.

The Bucknell match could've been closer as the Bearcats dropped a one-point decision at 157, a two-point decision at 184 and a four-point decision at 125.
