WESTERN PA—The 25th ranked Broncs traveled through Western Pennsylvania and split a pair of EWL dual meets at Edinboro and Clarion Saturday. “Edinboro is at the top of our league right now,” said Rider head coach Gary Taylor.  “Hopefully once we get everyone healthy we can get up to the top.”

For Rider (6-2, 2-1 EWL) sophomore Robert Deutsch (Cherry Hill, NJ/Eastern Regional) won twice to improve to 10-2, sophomore Conor Brennan (Brick, NJ/Brick Twp.) won twice to improve to 10-4 and senior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville) won twice to improve to 9-3.

“All three of them had good wins against good wrestlers,” Taylor said.  “They wrestled well today.”

At Edinboro (2-2, 2-0 EWL) Brennan won 5-2, Santiago won 9-4 and Deutsch won 3-1 in sudden victory.

Edinboro leads the all-time series with Rider 5-1.

At Clarion (4-6, 0-2 EWL), freshman Paul Kirchner (Somerville, NJ/Somerville) won to give Rider a 6-3 lead 184 senior Jim Resnick (Media, PA/Penncrest) won to give Rider a 15-13 lead and junior Donald McNeil (Plainville, Mass./Wyoming Seminary) won by fall to give Rider a 21-13 lead, sealing the victory.

Resnick, a three-time NCAA qualifier, missed most of the season with an injury and picked up his first win in his second match of the year.

“We needed everybody today,” Taylor said. “That was a big win for Jim.”

Rider leads the all-time series 13-2 with the Golden Eagles.

Rider will now take part in the prestigious Midlands Championships December 29-30.
