Bearcats beat Wagner in dual meet 38-8

VESTAL, N.Y.--In its first home dual meet of the new year, Binghamton recorded three pins and a technical fall to defeat Wagner 38-8 in wrestling action on Wednesday night at East Gym. With the win, the Bearcats improve to 3-3 overall while the visiting Seahawks fall to 0-3 in dual meet competition.

"We are happy with how we did tonight," head coach Mike Fusilli said. "We have been putting in a lot of work the past few weeks to prepare for the CAA (Colonial Athletic Association) Duals next week and tonight was a good step. Our guys were really tired from all of the practicing we've been doing so we did well tonight."

At 141, junior Josh Ruff (Bainbridge, N.Y.) rasied his career dual match record to 26-3 with a technical fall victory over Wagner's Justin Ensign at the 3:33 mark. Senior Beau Bruno (Mineola, N.Y.) followed up with a pin over Dan Gollin at 149. He recorded the pin at the 1:12 mark of the match. At 157, junior Rob Skalor (Chester, N.Y.) made it two pins in a row when he stopped Patrick Larkin at 1:11. The Bearcats' final pin came at 184 where Joe Gartiser (Tuxedo, N.Y.) stopped Matthew Hartigan at the 2:32 mark of the match.
