PISCATAWAY – On Friday night, the wrestling team from Rutgers University caused concern and good in its victory over Princeton University with a score of 24-13 in front of a crowd of 3580 people at the Jersey Mike Arena.

Of concern is the outstanding 141-pound Sebastian Rivera, who was injured in the first period of the fight against Danny Coles, as he was noticeably lame when he got up from the mat.

By the end of the bout he was troubled by discomfort in his knees, and after it was over, he limped off the mat.

Rutgers coach Scott Goodell has said Rivera has injured his knee and will likely not fight on Saturday when the Scarlet Knights complete a double season against Columbia at the Jersey Mike Arena.

“He got a little better after that, so that’s a good sign,” Goodell said. “He was probably scared the most. But any time you deal with a knee, you never know. We have to look at it.”
