The Sacred Heart wrestling team took the mat for their first home dual meet taking on the dragons of Drexel. The Pioneers fell to the Dragons in a hard fought battle 36-9.
The Pioneers fell to an early deficit after losing seven matches, until Elliott Antler picked up a decision 9-4. Antler was dominant on his feet picking up a number of takedowns leading to the win. Antler's win gave the Pioneers momentum as Sasha Oliinyk went on to pin his opponent in the next match after a slick throw on the edge of the mat. Oliinyk picked up the fall in 1:30 in the first period but the Pioneers still trailed 30-9. The match closed at 36-9 in favor of Drexel.
