The match started at 174 and Travis Frick got the Mountain Hawks off to a fast start. Frick scored early and often en route to a 19-6 major decision over Scarlet Knights' freshman Michael Whalen.
Rutgers picked up its only victory at 184 as last minute replacement Ben Bishop wrestled tough and gave up only a decision in a 4-1 loss to Rutgers' No. 9 ranked Rudy Medini.
Lehigh re-asserted its dominance in the remaining bouts. Matt Cassidy and Tom Curl delivered wins by decisions at 197 and heavyweight respectively. When the lineup turned over to the lightweights, freshman Matt Fisk and sophomore Jeff Santo delivered bonus wins. Fisk was very impressive in a 15-5 major decision over Ryan Jablonski at 125 and then Santo built a 12-0 lead before pinning Andrew Cardella in 3:56.
Matt Ennis earned a 4-2 decision subbing for Cory Cooperman at 141. Trevor Chinn and Derek Zinck wrapped things up with wins with Zinck's coming by major decision. Troy Letters was a winner by forfeit for the Brown and White at 165.
"I thought we wrestled well today as a team," said head coach Greg Strobel. "Today was a good challenge for us and a good measuring stick before we head to Oklahoma next week."
