OSWEGO, N.Y. -- No. 13 SUNY Cortland tied a school record with its 17th dual-match victory of the season as the Red Dragons downed host Oswego 31-6 on Wednesday night.
Cortland, now 17-2, won eight of the 10 matches, including two by pin and one by major decision. The Red Dragons' 17 wins ties the school record set in 1995-96 during a 17-3 season.
Cortland opened the night with a 3-0 win by Paul Fields at 125 pounds, but Oswego (2-10) tied the score when Omar Santiago posted a 7-3 win at 133 pounds.
At 141 pounds, the Red Dragons' Edwin Perry recorded a takedown with 10 seconds left in regulation to force overtime, then won the match with another takedown 28 seconds into the first sudden-victory period. Perry improved to 11-5 with the win.
Cortland extended its lead to 10-3 on Andre Berry's 12-3 major decision at 149 pounds. The win increased Berry's record to 16-7 this winter. Oswego closed to within 10-6 on a 5-3 decision by Nick Rodgers at 157 pounds.

At 184 pounds, Carl Korpi earned a 4-2 win in the second sudden-victory overtime period against Cameron Mills. Korpi registered an escape, then scored with a second remaining on a Mills technical violation. Mills, however, earned a point for riding time to tie the match at 2-2.
