PSC comes up empty at home quad meet

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Plymouth State College's wrestling team hosted a quad-meet Saturday at Foley Gymnasium, and came up empty in all three dual matches.

The Panthers were defeated in the opening match to Springfield, 25-12, then lost to Johnson and Wales, 23-14, and finished up a disappointing afternoon with a 30-15 setback to Trinity. The losses drop PSC below the .500 mark on the season at 8-9.

PSC got a solid afternoon from junior Nate Buffington (Plymouth, N.H.) at 125 pounds. He earned an overtime decision over Springfield's Justin Friend and pinned Trinity's Anthony Marcucio, but had his perfect afternoon ruined with a 15-0 loss to JWU's Tom Nowak. Buffington is now 11-12 on the season.

Sophomore Rich Moskowitz (Amherst, N.H.) was the only other Panther wrestler to win more than one match. He earned decisions over his JWU and Trinity opponents, but lost a verdict to Springfield.

The Panthers wrap up the regular season Tuesday (Feb. 6) with a dual match against Williams. The match will be held at Milford (N.H.) Middle School (6 p.m.).
