The Old Dominion wrestling team dropped seven of the ten weight classes Saturday afternoon en route to a 27-9 loss at the hands of Maryland in non-conference action at the Comcast Center.

Redshirt freshman Chris Buckner (Chesapeake, VA) at 133, senior Dave Kaplan (Woodbridge, VA) at 165 and junior heavyweight Derrell Lorthridge (Wilmington, DE) were the only winners for the Monarchs on the day.

The contest was tied at 3 after the first two weight classes, but the Terrapins earned 11 points in next two bouts to take a commanding 14-3 advantage. Charlie Busch (Rochester, MN) lost 21-6 to John-Henry Zarzycki at 133 giving Zarzycki the five-point technical fall. Freshman Jon Stovich (Latrobe, PA) was then pinned by 149-pounder Adam James as the home team went up by 11.

ODU would come no closer than 17-6 after Kaplan's 7-5 decision win at 165 pounds. Lorthridge also picked a three-point decision in the final match, 6-3 over Eric Fehnel.

The Monarchs (5-9/2-4) will look to bounce back on Thursday when they travel noth to face Delaware State at 7:00 p.m. They return home next Sunday to host conference foe James Madison on Senior Day at 2:00 p.m.
