The No. 10 University of Maryland wrestling team came up with one of the biggest victories in school history Friday night, coming back from a 17-9 deficit with only two matches left to knock off No. 4 Cornell 18-17.  After eight matches, the Terps trailed the Big Red by a margin of eight points, but two-time All-American Hudson Taylor, ranked No. 3 in the country, brought Maryland within two. Taylor recorded a takedown and a near fall in the first period to go ahead 4-0, and then closed the match in the second period. Going against fifth ranked Cam Simaz, Taylor recorded a crucial pinfall, giving the Terps six points to bring the team score to 17-15.  The deciding match came down to junior heavyweight Patrick Gilmore, who was taking on No. 12 Josh Arnone.

He got an escape with 1:53 left to bring the score to 4-2. Then, with only three second left on the clock, Gilmore recorded a takedown to tie the match at four and force it to overtime. Gilmore recorded another takedown in extra time, giving him the 6-4 victory and Maryland the 18-17 win. (from umterps.com)
