Hofstra is too much for Sacred Heart

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., Feb. 12, 2022 – After dropping a five-point decision to Harvard, the Hofstra University wrestling team rebounded with a 37-15 win over Sacred Heart on Saturday in EIWA action.

Hofstra (3-11, 2-5 EIWA) raced out to a quick 17-0 lead with a pin, tech fall and a forfeit in the first three matches.

Sacred Heart’s Jacob Venezia picked up a win by fall at 125 and Anthony Petrillo followed with a 5-3 win over Hofstra’s Matthew Templeton at 133 pounds to cut the lead to 17-9. But the Pride won the next four matches to win the bout with a pair of technical falls, a pin and a major decision.

For Venezia, it was the first collegiate pin of his career and his first dual meet win of the season.

Sacred Heart (1-7, 1-5 EIWA) returns to action on Saturday when they visit Long Island University at 4 p.m. and close out the dual meet portion of the schedule on Sunday when they visit Brown University in Providence.
