Foster scores big win over 20th-ranked foe


Freshman 165-pounder Ron Foster (Peru, N.Y.) provided the fireworks during Binghamton's 29-10 defeat to Buffalo on December 5, stopping the nation's 20th-ranked wrestler in a 9-5 decision. Foster, who improved to 2-1 in duals and 5-5 overall, jumped out to a 5-0 lead over Buffalo's Dave Guarino, who is also the reigning New York State champion. He put Guarino to his back in the first period for three near-fall points, and continued to apply pressure. Leading 5-2 entering the third period, Foster recorded an escape and another takedown to forge an 8-2 cushion. The offensive outburst against such an elite opponent impressed head coach Mike Fusilli.

"It was Ron's best match of the season - against his toughest opponent by far," Fusilli said. "He had a great start and stayed aggressive throughout the match. He kept looking for opportunities to score."

Gaurino advanced to the NCAA Division I Championship last season, winning three matches in the process.

The Bearcats dropped seven of 10 bouts and lost at Buffalo, 29-10.
