    Bucknell concludes regular season with win

    VESTAL, N.Y. -- The Bucknell wrestling team won the first five bouts and jumped out to a 16-0 lead en route to a 23-10 win at Binghamton Friday night. The victory closed the regular season for the Bison, who improved to 10-11 overall, 5-4 against EIWA competition. The first-year EIWA member Bearcats fell to 5-12, 2-7 EIWA.

    Bob Hauser, who moved up to 141 pounds after wrestling at 133 last week, and 285-pounder Joe Stolfi posted major decisions for Bucknell, while Paul Petrov, Grim Gonzalez, Victor Lopez, Ray Schlitt and Robert Schlitt won by decision to help the Bison end the regular season on a two-match winning streak.

    It was a relatively close match as five of the 10 bouts were decided by three or fewer points and there were just three bonus-point bouts.

    Petrov opened the match with a 10-8 overtime decision at 125 pounds. It was his seventh consecutive win as he improved to 3-0 in overtime this year.

    Gonzalez was not in the lineup last week and he returned Friday with a 5-2 decision at 133. He is now 4-2 in his last six bouts.

    Hauser won his second straight bout, posting a 13-3 major decision. Three of his five victories this year have been for bonus points.

    Ray Schlitt extended the lead to 16-0 with a 7-3 decision at 157.

    Binghamton claimed three of the final five bouts, but Robert Schlitt was able to win for the 15th time this year at 174, while the 17th-ranked Stolfi concluded the match with a 12-2 major decision over No. 19 Tyler Deuel. He is now 29-6 this season and has won 14 straight bouts.

    Bucknell will now turn its attention to the EIWA Championships, which will be held March 8-9 at Penn.
