By Chris Caputo, UPJ Athletics

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. -- The Mountain Cats opened-up a 17-3 lead, then got a pin from sixth-ranked Dave Cawley at 149 lbs, to help the eighth-ranked Pitt-Johnstown wrestlers rebound from Friday’s loss with a 26-12 PSAC victory at East Stroudsburg University on Tuesday.  The Mountain Cats improved to 3-1 overall and evened their record at 1-1 in the PSAC.

Pitt-Johnstown jumped on East Stroudsburg early and never looked back.
The match started at 174 lbs. where two-time National Qualifier Gary Lantz shutout Joey Fogle 6-0, before second-ranked Travis McKillop scored a 9-1 major decision over Luke DeLuise at 184 lbs. to put the Mountain Cats up 7-0.

The Warriors answered at 197 lbs. with Tyson Searer’s decision win over
Zak Newton, but a forfeit victory by eighth-ranked Josh Duplin at 285 lbs.
and a major decision by seventh-ranked Dave Fogle over Connor Maliff at
125 lbs. pushed the Pitt-Johnstown advantage out to 17-3.

East Stroudsburg cut it to 17-6 at 133 lbs. when Joey Kratochvil defeated
Evan Link, 6-5, in the second tie-breaker.

However, the Mountain Cats came back to win the next two bouts to seal the victory.  At 141 lbs., Luke Palamides won 8-3 over Joseph Hoy, and Cawley, ranked sixth at 149 lbs., pinned Ray Nicosia at 2:16 to build the lead to 26-6.

The Warriors closed out the match and set the final at 26-12 with a pair
of wins by decision.  Eric Howey defeated Sam Molina, 12-7, at 157 lbs.,
and eighth-ranked Braden Turner held off John Blankenship, 3-1, at 165
lbs.

With the loss, the Warriors slipped to 1-1 overall and 0-1 in the PSAC.

The Mountain Cats travel to the 2013 PSAC Championships at Edinboro
University on December 7 and to the Wilkes Open on December 28.
Pitt-Johnstown will wrestle its next home match on January 25 when
Millersville University visits the Sports Center for an 11 a.m. start.
