Merchant Marine Posts Perfect 4-0 Record at North/South Duals

Josh Miller (Jackson Hole, WY) and Mike Mui (Hingham, MA) both went 4-0 as the Mariners picked up four dual meet victories Saturday at the annual North/South Duals.  Merchant Marine knocked off Kings, Westchester, Wesleyan, and WPI to improve to 6-1 in the 2013-14 season.  Miller earned three of his victories by pin fall and is now 11-4 with seven total pins on the year.

Merchant Marine picked up three pins in a 41-13 rout of Kings College as Mui, Ben Stallings (Fairfax, VA), and Ricky Fisher (Nashville, TN) all put their opponents shoulders to the mat.  USMMA received four forfeits and got technical falls from Matt Watson (Cocoa Beach, FL) and Stallings en route to a 46-6 victory over Westchester.

The Mariners rattled off 21 straight points to close out a 30-9 triumph over Wesleyan (CT).  Freshman Patrick Rooney (Belgrade, MN) sealed the win with a 8-2 decision over Taran Carr.  USMMA also fell behind WPI, 10-3, before surging down the stretch for a 27-10 victory to close out the day.  Miller's pin over WPI put the Mariners on top for good as Merchant Marine has now won six straight dual meets.
