PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The Plymouth State University wrestling team competed in its final home matches of the season Sunday afternoon, winning one and losing two in a quadrangular meet at Foley Gymnasium.

The Panthers defeated MIT in the opening match, 42-9, but dropped consecutive matches to Bridgewater State, 24-16, and Norwich, 39-9. PSU is now 6-10 on the season, while Norwich (ranked #2 in New England) is 11-5, Bridgewater State (ranked #6 in New England) is 5-7-1, and MIT is still looking for its first victory.

Senior Nick Gurney (Dixfield, Maine) and junior Brandon Black (Keene, N.H.) led the Panthers by earning two victories apiece on the afternoon. Gurney recorded a pair of pins in three bouts at 184 pounds, improving his season record to 18-8. Black registered two wins on the mat at 165 pounds as well as receiving a forfeit victory.

Freshman Zeth Nolda (East Lyme, Conn.) at 149 pounds and sophomore Ryan Schieding (Manchester, N.H./Memorial) at 157 each finished with 2-1 records on the day for PSU. They each received forfeit wins against MIT, won a match against their Bridgewater State opponent, and lost in the Norwich match. Freshman 133-pounder Shawn Moseley (Hooksett, N.H./Concord HS/Tilton Prep) pinned his MIT opponent and won by forfeit against Bridgewater State, but lost to his Norwich foe.
