Wrestlers fall to Slippery Rock 17-15

VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton (7-13) won five of the nine bouts but a pin at heavyweight carried visiting Slippery Rock to a 17-15 win at East Gym. The Bearcats held a 15-11 edge heading into the final match, but Slippery Rock sophomore Bob McKillop (Export, Pa./Kiski) pinned BU senior Nick Cadmus in 58 seconds, and the six team points gave "The Rock" the two-point victory.

"We had our opportunities," BU head coach Mike Fusilli said. "We didn't expect to lose at 157 or 165. It's a case of some guys not doing what they should have."

One of BU's winners was sophomore 141-pound Josh Ruff (Bainbridge, N.Y./Bainbridge-Guilford), who raised his dual record to 14-1 with a commanding 13-2 major decision. If Ruff wins his remaining two dual matches against East Stroudsburg (Feb. 19) and Columbia (Feb. 21), he will establish a school-record for dual wins in a season.

"Josh did a great job," Fusilli said. "He was excellent on top."
