While Yianni Diakomihalis and Vladimer Khinchegashvili will be the headliner Thursday night at the annual Beat The Streets Benefit, there are two women's matches on the card that could end up stealing the show.

Thursday, September 17, 2020

The first of those matches is Victoria Francis vs. Alexandria Glaude. A rematch from the semifinals of Senior Nationals back in December that included some scoreboard confusion in the final seconds, but one that Francis ultimately came out on top of.

Watch Glaude and Francis' controversial finish at the 2019 Senior Nationals.

Not only is it a rematch, but it will be a showdown between the third- and fourth-ranked wrestlers in the country at 68kg and wrestlers who have had success on the international level. Francis was the 2019 U.S. world team member at 72kg after winning Final X and would advance to the bronze-medal match at the World Championships, but ultimately finished fifth.

Glaude made Final X in 2019 as well but fell to eventual world champion Tamyra Mensah-Stock in straight matches. In 2018, Glaude brought home a bronze medal from the U23 World Championships in Bucharest, Romania. 

The other women's freestyle match on the card will be another showdown between top-seven-ranked Senior-level women when Emily Shilson and Felicity Taylor square off. 

Shilson is one of the most credentialed young wrestlers on the Senior-level scene right now. The Augsburg University wrestler won NCWWC and WCWA national titles last season, made a U23 world team in 2019, won silver and gold medals at the Cadet world championships in 2017, and 2018, and won six Fargo national titles. The Minnesota native is currently ranked seventh at 50kg.

Watch Shilson beat McKayla Campbell in the WCWA finals earlier this year.

Taylor is just as credentialed in her own right making the same U23 world team that Shilson was on, winning a Fargo title, taking second at the 2019 WCWA Championships, and second at the National Collegiate Women’s Wrestling Championships in 2020. Taylor is also already qualified for Olympic Trials when she placed sixth at Senior Nationals back in December. The Iowa native made her debut at seventh at 53kg in our domestic women's freestyle rankings

Watch Taylor pick up a tech fall at Senior Nationals last December.
