The Bearcats hosted the University of Pennsylvania Quakers at the Events Center in their second conference meet and came out on top 24-12. Friday's win marks their second consecutive win over the Quakers, a team they had not defeated before the 2017-2018 season, and their first EIWA win.
The match started with an early back and forth, but the Bearcats won the final four bouts to secure the win. No. 8 Lou DePerez came out on top with a 15-0 tech fall, holding a 5-0 lead after one period. The Bearcats tallied seven wins out of ten contested bouts.
The Bearcats travel to Columbia on Sunday barring weather conditions.
