ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- With a 36-9 loss to Delaware Valley, ranked 11th in the nation, at home Friday night, Elizabethtown's dual match record dropped to 3-11.
Bill Van Winkle (Hummelstown, PA/Lower Dauphin) was denied another opportunity to become the fifth wrestler in Elizabethtown history to reach the 100 career win mark when he lost a close 5-4 opening match to Mike Jones (Havertown, PA/Haverford), who is ranked second in the nation at 125 pounds. Van Winkle will get two more chances to reach the milestone tomorrow when Etown hosts Muhlenberg and Baptist Bible in a tri-match.
A pair of Delaware Valley pins at 133 and 141 pounds made the score 15-0 in the Aggies' favor. Etown's Brian Alwine (Hanover, PA/South Western) struck back with an 11-6 win at 149 pounds.
Etown then had to forfeit at 157 pounds, and lost on a major decision, a pin, and a technical fall at 165, 174, and 184 pounds, respectively, as Delaware Valley surged ahead to a 36-3 lead. Art Mattes (Bethlehem, PA/Bethlehem Catholic) stopped the bleeding with a 3-2 win for the Blue Jays at 197 pounds for his team-leading 20th victory of the season.
Josh Boyer (Hanover, PA/Delone Catholic) won the final bout of the evening for Etown, 3-1 in overtime, to make the score 36-9.
Elizabethtown returns to action at home Saturday, February 10 as host of Muhlenberg and Baptist Bible for a triangular match. There, Van Winkle will try again to reach win number 100. Start time of the first match is scheduled for 12:00 p.m.
