Brown Grapplers Top Bucknell, 22-12, For First Dual Win

Jan. 13, 2007

Providence, RI - With the score 16-12 entering the final match, junior co-captain Levon Mock (Bangor, MI) wrapped things up decisively, pinning George Hingson of Bucknell to give the Brown wrestling team (1-4, 1-0 EIWA) a 22-12 win over the Bison (7-7, 2-2 EIWA) at the Pizzitola Center Saturday afternoon.

Mock was one of six Bears to pick up a win in the dual match. Freshman Greg Einfrank (Millwood, NY) opened the match with a 9-3 win at 125 pounds. After the Bison tied things back up, 3-3, junior Mark Savino (Lawrenceville, NJ) gave the Bears a four-point cushion, taking an 8-0 major decision, which senior Jordan LaFollette (Magadone, OH) followed with a 7-5 win at 149.

Senior co-captain David Saadeh (Lancaster, PA) picked up his first win of the year in a big way, topping Brantley Hooks, ranked sixth in the EIWA at 165 pounds, 3-2. Saadeh and Hooks were tied at 2-2 heading into the third round, and Saadeh picked up the winning point on an escape. The Bison took three of the next four matches, with Matt Gevelinger (Mineral Point, WI) taking a 9-6 win by decision at 184 pounds. Mock closed things by pinning Hingson at 2:08. Mock moved to 10-8 on the year with the win, picking up his fourth win by pinfall this season.

The Bears will be home once again next weekend, when they host Rutgers at noon at the Pizzitola Center.
