^^Here is a copy of the UPJ Release-

The sixth-ranked Pitt-Johnstown wrestlers used falls from Evan Link (125 lbs.) and Travis McKillop (184 lbs.) and three other technical falls to pin a 36-9 loss on Kutztown University in Thursday's 2015-16 PSAC-opener in the Sports Center. The Mountain Cats improved to 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the PSAC.

A fall and technical fall to start the match set pushed the Mountain Cats out to an early 11-0 lead. Link took just 2:12 to pin Austin Petril at 125 lbs., and Troy Dolan followed with an 18-2 technical fall at 4:08 over Zach Ulerick at 133 lbs.

The Golden Bears answered right back with a fall of their own to cut it to 11-6 when Travis Roper pinned Sam Hanau at 141 lbs., but Travis Shaffer used a 16-0 technical fall at 2:08 over Dave Migliaccio to get the Mountain Cats' lead back into double digits at 16-6.

Pitt-Johnstown's Luke Palamides gave All-American and fourth-ranked Matt Martoccio everything he could handle in the 157-lb. bout, but Martoccio broke a 2-2 tie by riding Palamides out the entire third period to earn a 3-2 victory to narrow the Kutztown gap to 16-9.

However, it was all Mountain Cats after that. Eighth-ranked Tyler Reinhart (165 lbs.) recorded Pitt-Johnstown's third technical fall of the night at 4:20 (16-0) over James Meyer, and fourth-ranked John Blankenship dealt Ryan Krecker a 4-0 loss at 174 lbs. to extend it to 24-9.

Pitt-Johnstown wasn't done yet. McKillop, ranked fourth in the country at 184 lbs., needed only 42 seconds to pin Charlie Livingston to make it 30-9 and put the match out of reach with two bouts remaining.

At 197 lbs., freshman Tyler Oliver held off Collin Schildt, 9-7, and fourth-ranked Josh Duplin used a second-period escape and riding time to outlast Ryan Appleby, 2-0 at 285 lbs. that set the final score at 36-9.

With the loss, the Golden bears slipped to 1-2 overall and 0-1 in the PSAC.

The Mountain Cats travel to a PSAC match at East Stroudsburg University on Tuesday, before competing in the Grappling at the Garden even in Madison Square Garden on November 29. Pitt-Johnstown will not wrestling its next home match until January 22 when Gannon University visits the Sports Center.
