40-26 SP Final

It got a bit hectic in here. 1500 plus attendance: it
was a great atmosphere.
Sikel's pin up a weight at 170 was huge. As was Gerardi's win at 195
after BC decided to bump Jenco.
Casamenti and Hedden was good bout. Would have been alot more
interesting had the upper weight bouts fell a bit differently.
The Romanian came in with a ton of type. Hung tough on his
feet with Heilman most of 1st. Looked confused on bottom and Heilmann is TOUGH with that bar.
Delvecchio and Ashnault did what they do.
