On the strength of six pins, the Boston University wrestling team posted a dominating 56-0 victory over American International on Sunday afternoon at Case Gym. The Terriers improve to 4-1 on the year with the victory.
All six pins came in the first period of the respective bouts. Freshman Dane Harlowe had the quickest fall of the day, getting the pin just 12 seconds into his 133-pound match against Cole Ludorf. BU added a technical fall and the Yellow Jackets forfeited the 174- and 184-pound matches.
Junior Bubba McGinley got things started with a 19-4 technical fall against Andrew Chase at 125. Harlowe followed with his quick pin and junior B.J. Suitor gave the Terriers a 17-0 lead after he pinned Cody Cardinale at 1:11 of their 141-pound match.
At 149, junior Nick Tourville held off Chris Hoffman, 5-2. Redshirt junior Nestor Taffur recorded his team-leading seventh fall of the year at the 1:18 mark of his 157-bout versus Brandon Walsh.
Sophomore Mitchell Wightman pinned Freddy Bruce at 1:38 in the 165-pound match before classmate Andrew Maksimovic (174) and redshirt sophomore Alex Najjar (184) picked up forfeit wins to push the lead to 44-0.
Senior Hunter Meys got his second pin of the weekend at 197, getting Iarik Loshchinin's shoulders down at 2:29 of their bout. In the finale, junior Kevin Innis pinned Dan Parker at 1:11 of their 285-pound match.
The Terriers will return to the mat on Saturday (Jan. 19) when they head to Virginia for the CAA Duals. BU will face Old Dominion, George Mason and Hofstra.
