Wrestling Team Favored Over Ivy Doormat Brown

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Brown's hapless wrestling team should prove no obstacle to Harvard in its quest for a second-place Ivy finish tonight at Brown.

With Brown's sophomore standouts hobbled by injuries, the Bruins have managed only one league victory this season, defeating a lackluster Yale squad.

League-leading Penn, which eked out a 17-14 victory over Harvard last Saturday, crushed Brown, 30-5, in December, and Springfield, a two-point victor over the Crimson earlier this month, blanked the Bruins, 34-0, last week.

Harvard coach John Lee said the Brown match and Saturday's contest with Yale will be a warmup for the Princeton match next week. "If we win both of these matches, the Princeton meet should decide second place in the Ivy League," he said.

Harvard is currently 5-3 overall and 3-1 in the league. Penn, with only Columbia remaining on its Ivy schedule, seems certain to clinch its second consecutive title.

Lee will give Bruce Goodman a rest tonight by moving him from 123, where he wrestled against Springfield, Rutgers, and Penn, to his regular spot at 130. Tom Schnorr will fill in at 123.

John Imrie, who lost the second match of his Harvard career against Rutgers when he was knocked unconscious, will try to regain his winning form tonight at 177. Bob Panoff will wrestle at 191 again in place of the injured Howie Freedman, but Freedman may return in time for the Yale meet.

Harvard's freshman wrestling squad will also take on Brown's freshman tonight in Providence. Currently 4-2, the Yardlings have been hampered by lack of depth and have not been able to find anyone the handle the 130-lb, spot.

But the freshman squad boasts three undefeated wrestlers--Jeff Cobula at 167, Dave Scanlon at 191, and Angelo Marino at heavyweight. Fine individual performances sparked the Yardlings to a 22-13 victory over perennially powerful Springfield last week.
