GRANTHAM, PA - The Johns Hopkins wrestling team gave24th-ranked Messiah all it could handle Friday night, but the Falcons got two key pins and a match-clinching decision at 285 to secure a 22-16 victory over the Blue Jays. The Falcons improve to 11-6, while the Blue Jays slip to 4-12.

Both teams won five of the 10 matches, but Messiah used pins at 133 and 174 to fuel the win. Kaleb Loht, currently ranked ninth in the nation, pinned JHU's Michael Koren in 5:02 at 1:33 and 10th-ranked Matt Cross caught JHU's Travis Laska early and needed just 36 seconds to secure his fall at 174.

Still, it was Hopkins that led at the midway point of the match as the Blue Jays won four of the first five matches to grab a 13-6 lead. Freshman Paul Bewak and junior Paul Marcello sandwiched decisions at 125 and 141, respectively, around Loht's pin at 133 to make it 6-6 before Henry Stauber took a 10-2 major decision from Chris Williamson at 149 to give JHU its first lead at 10-6. Sophomore Matt Fusaro followed with a 6-0 victory over Chris Hardenberg at 157 to give JHU the seven-point lead.

The Blue Jays trimmed the deficit to 19-16 with a gutty 5-4 win for junior Reid Mosquera over Travis Ebersole at 197, but an 8-2 win for Russell Jones over Evan Johnson at 285 secured the victory for the Falcons.

Johns Hopkins will return to action on Sunday, February 12 when the Blue Jays host Merchant Marine and Stevens at Goldfarb Gymnasium. The first match that day will start at 11 am.
