Cavaliers Fall at Lone Star Duals
Harding Defeats Nationally Ranked Badger in Sudden-Death
DALLAS, Texas - Virginia's Martius Harding (Baltimore, Md./McDonough) came from behind to defeat nationally-ranked Aaron Stark from Wisconsin in sudden-death but it was not enough as the Cavaliers fell to Wisconsin in the first match of the Lone Star Duals held in Dallas, Texas. Harding defeated the eighth-ranked Stark 8-7 in the 190-pound weight class to close the gap to 23-10, but the Cavaliers lost their first dual match 23-16. It was the first loss in 10 contests stretching back to last season. Steve Garland (Middletown, N.Y./Middletown) started strong for Virginia in the match with a 10-1 major decision over Brian Slater to put Virginia up 4-0. But the Badgers won the next four bouts to take a 14-4 lead and held on for the win.
In the match against eighth-ranked Oklahoma, Jon Pozniak (State College, Pa/.Stae College) pinned Bo Eubanks 3:15 into the match at 142 pounds and Jim Harshaw (Cranberry Township, Pa./Seneca Valley) defeated Jay Lowe 8-2 in the 150-pound bout to move Virginia into a 9-9 tie with the Sooners. But Oklahoma won the last five matches to claim a 31-9 decision.
Virginia's Jason Mutarelli (N. Catasauqua, Pa./Catasauqua) scored a 15-0 technical fall over Ernest DeLeon of Brown in the 134-pound match to take an 8-6 lead in the third contest of the day. After Pozniak defeated Alex Ottiano 3-1 and Harshaw pinned Brian McDonald in the first period, the Cavaliers led 17-6. However, the Bears won four of the next five bouts, including a forfeit at 190 pounds, to take the match 22-20.
Virginia fell to 1-3 on the season. The Cavaliers return to action on Friday, January 9 as they compete at the Hampton Duals in Hampton, Va.
