CORVALLIS, Ore. – Another ranked opponent stood in the way of No. 15 Rutgers wrestling Saturday at Gill Coliseum, and another fell to the Scarlet Knights. RU dominated No. 18 Oregon State, 24-12, for its third consecutive victory against a top-25 team, closing the day with a 30-9 showing against Utah Valley.

Redshirt sophomore and No. 3-ranked Anthony Ashnault (South Plainfield, N.J.) and junior Richie Lewis (Toms River, N.J.) each upped their records to 7-0 on the season, with Lewis registering a pair of major decisions.

“It was a great challenge,” said head coach Scott Goodale. “We were excited to come out west and face a nationally ranked program that’s been good for a really long time. These guys are wrestling really, really well right now. It was a business trip, that’s the way we treated it. We’re exited to be heading back home with two big wins.”

Joining Ashnault and Lewis with two wins was No. 9 Anthony Perrotti (Roseland, N.J.). The redshirt senior rolled over No. 12 Seth Thomas (Oregon State), 10-3, and scored a tech fall in his second match to improve to 6-1. With two ranked wins this season, he is tied with Ashnault for the team lead.

“We always talk about feeding off each other and now no one wants to be that guy to lose,” Goodale said of Ashnault, Lewis, and Perrotti. “There’s a good healthy competition between them going on right now. It’s exciting to watch.”

Redshirt sophomore Nicholas Gravina (Allendale, N.J.) went 2-0 and is now 6-1 this season at 184 pounds. Redshirt senior Hayden Hrymack (Point Pleasant, N.J.) earned a quality victory against the Beavers, winning 5-2, against No. 15 Cody Brewer. The victory was Hrymack’s (5-3) first over a ranked opponent this season.
