Binghamton hammers Sacred Heart

FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Binghamton wrestling team heads home with it's fifth straight victory after a dominating 34-7 performance at Sacred Heart Friday night. The win moves them to 5-3 overall with a 5-1 EIWA mark.

"I'm proud of how the team battled today," head coach Kyle Borshoff said. "We talked this week about keeping our foot on the gas and scoring bonus points. We did that today in a number of matches. I'm excited to get back home next weekend for a couple of duals."

    Audey Ashkar (125) set the tone for the Bearcats, starting the match off with a pin over Ryan Burns at 4:56.

  • At 141 pounds, Anthony Sparacio recorded his seventh straight win, holding on for a 3-2 decision over Gerard Daly.
  • Frankie Garcia won his second dual match this season, notching the Bearcats third of five bonus point victories with a 15-2 major over Chris Cornell.
  • 157-pounder and true freshman Chris Barker hung tough for his first career dual victory, scoring off an escape and a takedown in the second period to take the 3-2 win over TJ Calas.
  • Vincent DePrez (174) put the nail in the coffin, pinning Joe Eiden at 1:48 to boost Binghamton to a 27-4 lead. The pin was DePrez's second in his last three matches for his fifth straight win.
