Owen J. Roberts traveled to Boyertown Saturday morning with hopes of continuing its strong early season effort.

However, the Wildcats ran into a more talented and experienced team in the Bears and dropped the Pioneer Athletic Conference contest, 49-16.

OJR's Tony Fuschino remained unbeaten (15-0) with a 14-1 major decision of Dave Jones in their 152-pound match.

Dave Damsgaard and Billy Kropp were also victorious with a decision and pin at 189 and 215, respectively.

Chad Piersol once again led his team in scoring with a 19-point outing to lead the Wildcats past the Crusaders on Saturday night.

OJR (8-2 PAC-10, 10-3 overall) jumped out to a 16-6 lead after the first eight-minutes, and extended that margin to 34-21 at the intermission.

Jon Michewicz and Kevin Raab each chipped in with 11 points for the winners, who moved to within a game of PAC-10 leader Spring-Ford (9-1).

LC - which fell to 1-9 in the league - will host the Wildcats on Tuesday on the back-end of their home-and-home.

Dennis Stanton scored a game-high 37 points Saturday, but received very little support from his teammates as the Bears (2-2 conference, 6-5 overalll) dropped their second Centennial

Conference game of the season after an undefeated march last year.

Stanton connected on 13-of-15 attempts from the foul line and drained six of 15 shots from beyond the arc.

F&M (4-0, 9-2) saw five players hit double-figures led by Steve Juskin's 29.


Franklin & Marshall 73

Molly Guntil scored seven point and grabbed seven rebounds for the Bears (2-2, 3-4), which suffered a disappointing defeat at the hand of the Diplomats on Saturday.

Amy Abernathy scored 19 points and ripped down 18 rebounds to lead F&M to the Centennial Conference win.

F&M used an impressive 44-19 run in the second half to bury the Bears.
