BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Old Dominion held off Campbell University this evening, 26-15, as the Monarchs improved to 6-5 overall, 2-1 CAA.

Junior Jeff Rusak (Reading,PA) blew open a close match by picking up his 94th career win, a pin against Campbell's Josh McConnell at the 2:43 mark. Matt Small (Chesapeake, VA) helped put the match out of reach for good with a pin over Campbell's John Christian.

Campbell (4-9, 1-3 CAA) led the match 6-3 after Adam Doherty pinned Matt Epps at the 1:58 mark in the 133 pound bout, but the lead would be short lived as ODU won the next three bouts in a row.

ODU had one team point deducted after the Monarch's Brad Krepps was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after losing to Jason Greenawalt at 197.
