LEXINGTON, Va. - Gardner-Webb picked up four major decisions and two pins Wednesday night to key a 29-12 win at VMI in the season’s Southern Conference opener.

The Runnin’ Bulldogs (4-7, 1-0 SoCon) got off to a strong start, getting back-to-back wins at 133 pounds from Robbie Golde (6-2) and at 141 pounds from Ryan Mosley (14-5) – with Mosley’s win coming via major decision.

The Keydets rebounded with a 6-1 win by Shabaka Johns over Cole Graves at 149, but Kyle Ash took a 10-6 win at 157 pounds over Edward Gottwald to spark a three-match streak that put the ‘Dogs up 21-3 in team scoring after Brett Stein capped the run with a pin of Tim Davison (2:54).

Boyce Cornwell took a 20-8 major decision over Andrew Embree at 197 pounds and Cortez Starkes wrapped up the win with a 9-1 major decision victory over Dalton Henderson in the night’s final individual bout.

Gardner-Webb will continue SoCon action after exams, traveling to face Chattanooga on Monday, December 16 at 7:00 pm.
