LOCK HAVEN, PA-The Rider University wrestling team began the dual meet season with victories over Shippensburg University and host Lock Haven University Friday night.  "We needed to have a good start to the season and we got one," said Rider head coach Gary Taylor.

For the Broncs (2-0) sophomore Clint Morrison (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cedar Cliff) won by fall and won by a major decision to lead Rider. "Clint did a really good job, especially in the second match," Taylor said.

Morrison improved to 5-1 on the season with an 11-0 victory that gave Rider a 16-11 lead over the host Bald Eagles.

Freshman Curt Delia (Mullica Hill, NJ/Delsea), sophomore 133 Jimmy Morris (Northport, NY/St. Anthony's), junior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville), junior James Brundage (Ossining, N.Y./Ossining), and sophomore 197 Donald McNeil (Plainville, Mass./Wyoming Seminary) also won twice Friday night.

Delia upset one of Lock Haven's top wrestlers to cut the Bald Eagle lead to 7-6. "Mac Maldarelli went to the finals at the Binghamton Open," Taylor said of Delia's opponent, "He's a good wrestler. That was a nice win for a freshman. You have to give a lot of credit to Delia. For a freshman to step up like that, I think that is very impressive."

Santiago remained undefeated at 7-0 and Morris improved to 7-2 on the season. "Ramon looked good," Taylor said. 

Against Lock Haven (1-1), Brundage's victory gave Rider a 12-11 lead. "That was a big match," Taylor said. "I got a couple of warnings in that match."

McNeil won at 197 to clinch the victory. Brundage is now 5-1 on the season.

Against Shippensburg (1-2), Morrison won by fall and senior Zac Cibula (Luxemburg, Wis./Luxemburg Casco) won a major decision. Cibula is now 7-3 on the season.

Morris won to tie the score at 3-3. Sophomore Vinny Fava (Elmwood Park, N.J./Elmwood Park) won to give Rider the lead for good.

In the season opening Binghamton Open, Rider had a champion, a runner-up, a third place, a fourth place and two fifth place finishers, while Lock Haven had two runners-up, a third place, a fifth place, and a sixth place finisher.

Rider and Lock Haven had not met in a dual meet since 2009, and Rider has now won the last three meetings. Lock Haven leads the all-time series, however, 16-5. "Lock Haven has a very strong tradition," Taylor said, "so that is always a good win."

Rider takes part in the all-day Keystone Classic, hosted by the University of Pennsylvania, Sunday. "That's a very tough tournament," Taylor said. "Now we switch back to the individual aspect of the sport. Try to get them to concentrate on just improving, try to get better each day, each tournament."
