TB2b: Waters just clamps on TIGHT and Gilman throws himself back. The ref stops it to warn someone. Gilman is angry and attacks Waters' legs after the whistle and Waters got off. Waters amps up the crowd. Ref gives Waters a point for a slam, gives Gilman a point for Waters' unsportsmanlike conduct. (I may be wrong about the reasons for the points, but that's my guess and both guys were awarded penalty points). Back at it, Waters clamps on BUT Gilman clamps on to a head and arm to reverse him to his back!!!! Not enough time for backpoints though. Waters wins 5-4 and tortures the crowd. Lots of antics on the bench and the crowd explodes with "LET'S GO HAWKS!" Terry Brands is riled up!!!

Back at it after a couple minutes.

165: #11 Dylan Palacio TECH #16 Nick Wanzek, 18-2
174: #4 Logan Storley DEC Duke Pickett, 7-5
Pickett takes a 3-2 lead late in the second, only for Storley to escape and tie it up late. Storley escapes quickly in the third to make it 4-3 with 1:50 to go. TD Storley, stall point for Pickett, escape Pickett... RT makes it 7-5 final for Storley, but a shaky match for the big favorite.
184: #1 Gabe Dean DEC #13 Brett Pfarr, 10-4
This dual meet looking quite interesting... if Dean wins here as expected, Cornell will be in the drivers seat to upset Minnesota. Dean gets the job done for his team.
