HAMPTON, Va.—The Rider University wrestling team won twice on Saturday and the Broncs placed sixth at the 34th annual Virginia Duals after defeating the Citadel 28-15 and Arizona State 25-11, winning seven matches in each dual.

Rider lost to Chattanooga 26-15 in the battle for fifth place Saturday night.

"The team wrestled hard this weekend," said 36-year head coach Gary Taylor.  "We faced some pretty tough competition and had some great performances."

For Rider (8-5), freshman John Gentile (West Deptford/Paulsboro) drew the praise of Coach Taylor by stepping into the lineup due to injuries and pinning his opponent in 5:35, giving the Broncs a 13-0 lead against The Citadel.

“Johnny gave us the strongest performance,” Taylor said after the opening match.  “He stepped up when we had to adjust the lineup and got the job done and pinned his opponent.”

Against The Citadel, the Broncs opened action at 125 with a major decision from red-shirt sophomore Robert Deutsch (Cherry Hill/Eastern Regional) and he followed that win with a 3-0 decision against ASU and an 8-3 win against Chattanooga   For Deutsch, it was his fifth win at the duals and 19th of the season.  Deutsch won by technical fall (20-5) to give Rider a 5-0 lead against George Mason and he scored a 4-3 win against Virginia Tech., giving the Broncs a 3-0 lead against the Hokies on Friday.

Red-shirt junior 133 Chuck Zeisloft (Woodbury Heights/Gateway) won a 6-0 decision against The Citadel as the Broncs took a 7-0 lead and he scored a 6-2 win over Arizona State, giving Rider a 6-0 lead.  For Zeisloft, he now has 15 wins on the season.  On Friday, against George Mason, Zeisloft scored an 8-3 decision to give the Broncs an 8-0 lead, avenging a 3-1 loss to Vincent Rodriguez from January 21, 2012.

Sophomore 149 Curt Delia (Mullica Hill/Delsea) won 7-5 against the Citadel, recorded a 12-4 major decision over ASU and won by injury default against Chattanooga for five wins on the weekend.  He has 13 wins this season.  Delia won by fall in 3:51 and gave the Broncs a 14-6 lead against George Mason on Friday and against Virginia Tech., his 5-4 decision over returning All-American Zach Neibert tied the match 6-6.

“It was important for us to win the opening four bouts and get off to a good start,” Taylor said after the opening match.  “That was critical to winning against The Citadel.  They wrestled confident and did a good job getting us out to a strong lead by picking up bonus points.”

After The Citadel cut Rider’s lead to 16-9, red-shirt sophomore 174 Conor Brennan (Brick/Brick Township) won 7-2, against Arizona State, he also scored a 7-2 decision and he completed his 5-0 run through the duals with a 5-4 decision against Chattanooga, his 15th win of the season.  Brennan had an 8-5 decision against George Mason that gave the Broncs a 20-9 lead on Friday.

"Deutsch, Delia and Brennan all went undefeated," Taylor added.  "They defeated some very strong wrestlers."

At 184, red-shirt junior Clint Morrison (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cedar Cliff) was an 8-2 winner against The Citadel, and his 3-2 overtime win against Arizona State gave Rider a 19-7 lead in the dual.  Against Chattanooga, Morrison scored a 5-1 win, bringing the Broncs to within 16-15.  On Friday against George Mason, Morrison won by tech. fall, 15-0.  Morrison now has eight wins on the season.

Also for Rider, against Arizona State, red-shirt senior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville) was a 3-0 winner at 165, giving Rider a 13-7 lead.  Santiago now has 12 wins on the season.

“The effort was there for all of the weight classes,” Taylor added.  “It was a good performance throughout.”
