The Oswego State wrestling team concluded its participation in the Ithaca College Invitational on Saturday.

Isaac Mathews battled to a fourth place finish to pace the Lakers on the day.

THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Mathews rebounded from being pinned in his first match of the day with three-straight victories for a spot in the third-place bout.
  • The 141-pounder won the trio of matches by decision, clawing his way through the consolation bracket.
  • He upended RIT's Colby Hall 13-9, defeated Western New England's Jeff Suschana 6-3 and beat Castleton University's Mason LaFlam 10-6.
  • In the third-place matchup, the sophomore battled to a narrow 6-5 loss to Ithaca's Alec Corrao.
  • Heavyweight Bryce Reed had an impressive trio of wins himself, claiming all three by fall for a top eight finish.
  • Reed needed a tad more than a minute to pin Norwich University's John Rohrig (1:11) in the second consolation round.
  • After beating teammate Wilson Eckert with a fall at 3:39 in the third round, Reed overpowered Castleton's Mason Osborn in just 2:19.  
  • Junior Evan Corso also earned a top eight finish at 141-pounds after going 2-0 on Friday.
  • Corso dropped the quarterfinal bout but bounced back with a monster 20-5 technical fall over Springfield College's Bryce Finnegan before faltering in the seventh round of the consolation bracket.

WHAT'S NEXT

Oswego will have a full two weeks without a competition before heading to Cornell University for the 50th edition of the New York State Collegiate Championships at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18.
