Brown Wrestling Drops to Columbia, 21-19

Feb. 13, 2004

The Lions started out with a 15-0 lead to eventually squeeze out the victory over Brown 21-19.

Senior David Dies (Akron, OH) fought a tough match against Columbia's Erik Norgaard at 149 pounds. The match was scoreless going into the third period, when Dies chose the down position. He was eventually able to escape and won the match 2-0 with 1:52 on the riding clock.

At 165, senior Sean Jenkins (Schnecksville, PA) had a tough match at Golden Baker eventually winning 14-6.

In the last two matches, Brown recorded two pins at 184 with senior Nick Ciarcia (Berlin, CT) and junior Peter Mosely (Mission Viejo, CA) at 197 to make the score as close as possible, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Lions.

Brown travels to take on Cornell tomorrow, Feb. 14 at 1:00 p.m.
