BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo wrestling team extended its dual win streak to five with a 26-12 victory over SIU Edwardsville at Alumni Arena on Friday night. The Bulls improved to 7-6 overall and 3-2 in MAC duals.

Marcus Robinson followed with an 11-5 decision over Saul Ervin at 141. Robinson used three first-period takedowns to set the tone in the match.

After the Cougars had to forfeit the 157 match, Troy Keller followed with a tech fall win over Chase Deihl at 165. Keller had a takedown and three four-point near falls in the first period to take a 14-0 lead after one. The senior finished off the tech fall early in the second period.

Pete Acciardi won his second straight dual match with an 8-4 decision over Ryan Yarnell at 184. Sam Schuyler capped the win with a 14-7 decision over Jake McKeirnan at 197.

"We're getting better," head coach John Stutzman said. "These guys are doing a really good job out there competing, so it's been fun."
