HAMPTON, Va. - The University of Virginia wrestling team won five of ten bouts against the Cleveland State Vikings in the 2004 Virginia Duals at the Hampton Coliseum, but came up one point short in the team scoring as the Cavaliers fell to CSU, 19-18. Virginia built an 18-3 lead from the 125-165 pound weight classes, but dropped its final four matches to the Vikings in the one point loss.
Starting at 125-pounds, UVa's Brian Sticca claimed an injury default win over Cleveland State's Wornoff to give the Cavaliers a 6-0 lead. Virginia dropped its 133-pound match to make the score 6-3 before the Cavaliers reeled of four consecutive victories from 141-165.
At 141-pounds, #2 ranked Scott Moore improved his overall record to 27-0 with a 3-2 decision over #9 ranked Anthony Coleman to make it a 9-3 contest. UVa's Aaron Martin then posted a 10-7 win over Cleveland State's Depolo at 149-pounds to make the score 12-3 before Virginia's Paul Bjorlo defeated CSU's Effner 5-2 at 157-pounds to make it a 15-3 contest.

But Cleveland State responded with four matches to go and won all four bouts. CSU recorded two major decisions at 184 and 197, a technical fall victory at HWT and a decision at 174 to score 16 unanswered points to pull out the one-point win at 19-18.
