ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Richard Durso fell to North Carolina's Evan Henderson in the 141-pound consolation bracket of the NCAA Championships on Thursday evening, bringing one of the finest individual seasons in Franklin & Marshall wrestling history to a close. Henderson defeated Durso by a 5-1 decision to advance in the backdraw.
Henderson jumped on top late in period one by registering a takedown with just three seconds remaining to take a 2-0 edge. Durso began the second period on the bottom, and tallied an escape 11 seconds in to pull within 2-1.
In period three, Henderson notched a reversal early on to take a three-point advantage and secured two minutes of riding time for the final 5-1 margin of victory.
Durso lost 4-2 to fifth-seeded Hunter Stieber of Ohio State in his opening-round bout earlier in the day.
The freshman concludes his debut campaign with a 30-16 record, which places him tied for fourth on the single-season wins list.
