The Oswego State wrestling team fought valiantly but lost to a late Oneonta comeback at home on Wednesday night.

Prior to the dual, Oswego honored its senior class of Bryan CollTrevor HoffmierAnthony IannoJeff LombardiRocco Russo and Troy Seymour with a brief ceremony


  • Result: Oneonta 21, Oswego 16
  • Location: Max Ziel Gymnasium – Oswego, N.Y.
  • Records: Oneonta 10-7  |  Oswego 6-7


  • With the Lakers leading 16-12 heading to the 197-pound weight class, the Laker faithful were raucous with the nation's second-ranked heavyweight for Oneonta looming in the final group.
  • Ricardo Dawkins and Oneonta's Peter Pjetri did not disappoint the crowd, sending an action-packed battle into overtime. Dawkins used a trio of reversals to wow the fans and stun his Red Dragon opponent in regulation. An Oneonta takedown in the opening moments of the extra period, however, gave three team points to the visitor.
  • The Lakers first weight class win of the night came from Coll at 141 pounds. Coll recorded a 4-1 decision with a pair of takedowns, one in each of the first two periods.
  • Next was the 149-pound Russo, who also picked up a decision (6-4) with two takedowns, an escape and an awarded penalty point from an Oneonta infraction.
  • Sophomore Christian Gramuglia made it three-straight victories and gave Oswego its first advantage of the night at 10-9 by way of a 9-0 major decision.
  • At 165-pounds, Hoffmier kept the winning ways rolling with a 7-4 decision that was wrought with tension. The senior battled through a couple of unnecessary roughness shots from his opponent that allowed two penalty points to be added to his score. Those points coupled with two takedowns, an escape and riding time were the difference.
  • Closing out the Laker victors on the night was Seymour at 174 pounds. The senior shutout his opponent 4-0 with a take down in the first and a reversal after starting on bottom in the second period.
