Brown Grapplers Smother Princeton, 47-0
Feb. 3, 2007
Princeton, NJ - In one of the biggest margins of victory in the program's history, the Brown wrestling team (2-9, 2-5 EIWA, 1-1 Ivy) shut out Princeton (0-13, 0-6, 0-2), 47-0, on Saturday afternoon. Eight Bears picked up bonus points, racking up three pins, a tech fall and three major decisions in addition to a forfeit.
Freshman Greg Einfrank (Jefferson Valley, NY) got things started in style at 125, pinning his opponent in 2:04. Following a forfeit win for the Bears at 133, junior Mark Savino (Princeton, NJ) took a 10-2 major decision at 141. The Bears took 17 points from the next three matches in impressive fashion. Freshman Bryan Tracy (Williamstown, NJ) needed just 14 seconds to pin his opponent at 149, which sophomore Tom Fazio (Ringwood, NJ) followed with a 16-0 tech fall in 4:30 at 157. Freshman Bran Crudden (Columbia, CT) ended the string of absolute dominance with a pin just 1:34 into his match at 165.
Brown closed the dual in relatively ho-hum fashion. Freshman Chris Musser (Vestal, NY) took an 8-1 decision at 174, followed by sophomore Matt Gevelinger (Mineral Point, WI) winning his second major decision in as many days, 12-2. Freshman Larry Otsuka (Upper Saddle River, NJ) and junior tri-captain Levon Mock (Bangor, MI) closed out the match by each totaling 10 points, Otsuka in a 10-6 decision and Mock in a 10-2 major decision.
The Bears will be back in action next Saturday, when they travel to Boston for duals with Harvard and Boston University.
