In Maryland wrestling’s first matchup since falling to Virginia, it wasn't able to break through for its first victory of the season against No. 19 Pittsburgh. The Terps fell by a final score of 26-7 but they did have some positive points to note after the defeat.

Sophomore Dominic Solis and redshirt senior Kyle Cochran were some of the two most productive wrestlers the Terps had. Solid was able to come away with a win and he did so with dominance. He nearly pinned his opponent in the third period, though he eventually settled for the 11-2 win.

Cochran, on the other hand, won his second dual match of the season to stay undefeated in that category. The redshirt senior shut out his opponent in his personal victory to give the Terps some life on the scoreboard. Despite Solis and Cochran’s efforts, Maryland still dropped the match to one of the elite teams in the nation.

After the match loss to Pittsburgh, Maryland is now 0-2 on the season. The program will return home to College Park to face Drexel, Duke and then Navy before heading off to compete in the Southern Scuffle, which is on the first few days of 2022.
