Wrestling Opens 2015-16 Season With 28-15 Victory Over St. Andrews

The Belmont Abbey wrestling team opened the 11th season of competition with a decisive 28-15 victory over the visiting St. Andrews Knights this evening inside the Wheeler Center.

Tonight's match was originally scheduled to take place outdoors on Ehmann's quad, but the inclement weather forced a change in venue.

Belmont Abbey recorded seven victories, three by fall, another by major decision and capped off by sophomore Chaas Delgado's 3-1 overtime victory at 285.

After the Knights won the first bout to take the early lead, Belmont Abbey won the next five bouts, two by pinfall. Troy Gregor earned a 1-0 win at 133, followed by Kane Price's win by fall at the 1:04 mark. All-American Scott Bosak followed with his most dominating victory in his career, winning by fall just 14 seconds into his match. He is now 25-3 in his Belmont Abbey career.

John Gahagan kept the momentum going with a 15-4 major decision victory at 157, and Joseph Coss followed with a 9-6 win at 165. The Knights broke the string with a narrow 6-5 victory at 174, but the Crusaders fought right back with a Tyler Maclain 5-1 win at 184. After a Knights triumph at 197, Delgado outlasted Deviin Washington in the final bout of the night, scoring a two point takedown with six seconds left in the first overtime to seal the 28-15 win.
