Wrestling Falls Short in 25-12 Loss to #30 TCNJ

Kings Point, NY – The Merchant Marine wrestling team was downed Thursday night by #30 TCNJ, 25-12.  Mike Mui (Hingham, MA) and Brian Walker (Huntsville, AL) both earned decision victories for the Mariners.  USMMA is now 8-2 on the season as the loss snaps an eight match winning streak.

Mui started the night with a dramatic win at 125 pounds as he trailed throughout the bout.  The sophomore earned his victory with a takedown with just 23 seconds left.  Walker entered the third period of his match trailing, 1-0.  The freshman escaped to start the period and a takedown coupled with riding time gave him a 4-1 triumph.  Merchant Marine also picked up six points with a forfeit at 141 pounds.

The USMMA wrestling team returns to action this weekend for conference dual meets against Ursinus and Gettysburg.
