College Wrestling  CAA Duals

Rider University 29, George Mason University 8

Rider University 19, Binghamton University 15

FAIRFAX, VA- In the 19th and 20th centuries duels were an arranged engagement in combat between two individuals, with matched weapons in accordance with agreed-upon rules. They were fought, not so much to kill the opponent as to gain satisfaction and restore one's honor.

Secretary of State and Speaker of the House Henry Clay and Congressman John Randolph of Roanoke had a famous duel in 1826 in Virginia.

On Saturday the Rider wrestling team gained much satisfaction in the arranged engagement of combat between conference teams, also in Virginia.

The Broncs defeated host Mason and 21st ranked Binghamton for a pair of Colonial Athletic Association wins at the CAA Duals. "It was a good day," said Rider head coach Gary Taylor.

For Rider (7-5, 2-1 CAA) senior Zac Cibula (Luxemburg, Wis./Luxemburg Casco), sophomore Vinny Fava (Elmwood Park, N.J./Elmwood Park), freshman Ryan Wolfe (New Castle, Del./Caravel), junior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville) and junior James Brundage (Ossining, N.Y./Ossining) all won twice on the day.

Against Mason (2-9, 0-2 CAA) sophomore Jimmy Morris (Northport, NY/St. Anthony's) won a major decision to cut the GMU lead to 5-4. Brundage also had a major decision.

Against Binghamton (4-9, 2-1 CAA) Cibula won by fall to tie the score at 9-9. "That was the key to the match," Taylor said.  "We needed to get something big after the upset at 133. We needed to get that back."

Wolfe won at 184 to give Rider a 19-9 lead, defeating the top ranked 184 in the CAA.  "That was probably the best win of the day," Taylor said. "That kid is pretty good (National Qualifier last year).  Ryan wrestled today the way we knew he was capable of."

Wolfe is now 17-9 on the season, 2-1 in duals replacing the injured Clint Morrison (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cedar Cliff) in the line-up.  "He performed well today against very good wrestlers."

Brundage (Ossining, N.Y./Ossining) had a major decision to give Rider a 16-9 lead. "James wrestled with more intensity today," Taylor said, "more purpose.  He had a nice day as well."

Freshman Curt Delia (Mullica Hill, NJ/Delsea) and sophomore Donald McNeil (Plainville, Mass./Wyoming Seminary) also picked up wins against GMU.

Rider hosts Army in a dual meet Wednesday. "They have a good team," Taylor said of the Black Knights of West Point.  "It will be nice to be home."

It is always an advantage to have the home turf in a duel, or a dual, especially against an army.
