Old Dominion University 24, Rider University 11

NORFOLK, VA-The Broncs won three matches, two by major decision, not enough to defeat Old Dominion in a Colonial Athletic Association dual meet Sunday afternoon.

ODU (9-5, 4-0 CAA) jumped out to an 18-0 lead after senior Zac Cibula (Luxemburg, Wis./Luxemburg Casco) was upset 2-1 at 157. "We got hurt at '57," said Rider head coach Gary Taylor.  "We knew we needed that one. It was a match that could have gone either way."

That was the theme of the day, as the Broncs (8-6, 2-2 CAA) lost four matches by one point, including one in sudden victory. "It is what it is," Taylor said of the close defeats. "We just came up a bit short in a few matches that were close. We'll keep working on it."

For Rider freshman Ryan Wolfe (New Castle, Del./Caravel), junior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville) and junior James Brundage (Ossining, N.Y./Ossining) won.

Wolfe, the top ranked 184 in the CAA, won an 11-1 major decision over Austin Coburn, the fourth ranked 184 in the CAA, to cut the ODU lead to 18-11.  "Ryan is a talented young man," Taylor said, "who needs to continue to grow. He is clearly heading in the right direction. He has a lot of talent but can get so much better. His upside is very high in the future."

Wolfe improves to 19-9 overall, 3-1 in the CAA.

Santiago, ranked 17th in the nation, won a major decision at 165 to cut the ODU lead to 18-4. Santiago improved to 24-6 overall, 12-2 in duals and 4-0 in the CAA.

Brundage won 7-3 at 174 to cut the ODU lead to 18-7.

ODU led 6-0 before things even started, with Rider forfeiting at 125.  "We couldn't put Skinner (freshman 125 Patrick Skinner of Freeport, NY/Kellenberg) out there, he was injured," Taylor said. "We knew we had to give that up."

Rider beat ODU 16-15 at Rider last season, the first time since 2003-04. Rider is 4-9-1 against ODU since the series began in 2001-02, with Rider winning the first three meetings.

Rider is now off until February 9 when the Broncs host Sacred Heart at 12 noon. "The break is good for us," Taylor said.  "It will give us a chance to work on some technique, which we're going to need more of as it comes down to the final run. We need to keep getting better all season long."
