    Bucknell completes regular season with 24-15 win at Columbia

    NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Paul Petrov recorded his seventh pin of the season and Tyler Smith, Victor Lopez and Tyler Greene all posted major decisions to lead the Bucknell wrestling team to a 24-15 victory at Columbia Saturday afternoon. It was the sixth win in the last seven duals for the Bison, who finished the regular season with a 12-6 overall record and 6-3 against EIWA competition. Columbia finished its regular season 9-7, 7-4 EIWA.

    Bucknell won six of the match's bouts, with four coming for bonus points. Rustin Barrick and Tom Sleigh also earned decisions for the Bison, who have a program-record 37 dual wins over the last three campaigns.

    Columbia scored three decisions and a forfeit at 285 pounds for its points.

    No. 11/9/12 Petrov got things started for Bucknell with his pin of Britain Carter at 125 pounds. The fall came with 10 seconds remaining in the third period. It was the 28th victory of the season for Petrov, who has 18 pins in his four-year career.

    After a Columbia win at 133 pounds, nationally ranked Smith and Lopez posted back-to-back major decisions for the Bison. It was a high-scoring bout for Smith, who defeated Joe Moita 25-12, while Lopez registered a 9-0 shutout of Dan Reed.

    Columbia's Markus Scheidel (157) and Tyrel White (165) entered the match nationally ranked and both posted decisions, bringing the Lions to within 14-9. That was as close as they would get, however, as Barrick and Sleigh - who are both nationally ranked themselves - posted back-to-back decisions and Greene followed with a 9-0 shutout at 197 pounds.

    Next up for both Bucknell and Columbia is the EIWA Championships, which will take place March 5-6 at Princeton.
