NJRTC/SERTC vs Spartan Combat RTC
57: Nahshon Garrett vs. Vito Arujau
1st Period: Another rematch dual from pool play in the semis. We'll see how day 2 Garrett does against day 2 Arujau. Arujau won yesterday. Single leg from Garrett and he's off to a great strat. A gut wrench gives Garrett a 4-0 lead before they're brought back up. Vito on the attack now, drives Garrett out of bounds for a step out point. A minute left in the period. Arujau in on a single leg, he's got Nahshon up in the air, has to settle for one though. Beautiful drag to set that sequence up for Arujau. Garrett double leg, drives Arujau out of bounds for a point. It's 5-2 at the end of the period in an action-packed first period.
2nd Period: Lots of fakes from space by both guys but no scores after a minute, Nahshon picks up a passivity. Garrett goes double, switches to a single, a wild scramble and somehow there were no points. The pace is absolutely scorching right now. One minute remaining. Nashshon in on a double, Arujau goes chest wrap out of bounds. It's four for someone. Ref says Vito, judge says Nahshon, chair says Vito. It's challenged, and Arujau keeps his four and picks up one more on the failed challenge. Huge swing and it's 7-5 in favor of Vito. 30 seconds to go. Heavy hands to match the furious pace. Garrett attacking like a mad man. Arujau holding on for dear life. And that's how it ends. 7-5, Arujau comes from behind to get his second victory over Garrett this weekend. Great start to the dual!
65: James Green vs. Yianni Diakomihalis
1st Period: Another dream matchup gets run back on day 2. Green throw by early, almost has the takedown but take Yianni over for an exposure. Yianni catches Green for an exposure of his own and it's 2-2 after a wild flurry, Yianni with criteria but lots of match to go. Things slow down a bit as they both wrestle a bit more cautiously. Short drag for Green and he gets a single leg but Yianni kicks free. Green tries another throw by but Yianni gets lower and counters with his own throw by and he covers for two more. 4-2 at the break.
2nd Period: Good action but no scores after 45 seconds. Green drops and hits a double but Yianni somehow gets hip to hip, throws in a whizzer and wrestles to a stalemate. Great defense. 90 seconds to go, Yianni still leads by two but a takedown or turn for Green will give him the lead on criteria. Green driving Yianni out of bounds, Yianni trying to stay grounded but can't and gives up the step out. Green still needs more than one more. Green drives Yianni out but that next one is ruled grounded. After a restart Green charges ahead and does pick up a caution and one, but with only 4 seconds to go, Yianni will take it 4-4, another criteria win between these two evenly matched hammers.
74: Mekhi Lewis vs. Jevon Balfour
1st Period: Lewis will try and get the SERTC/NJRTC a win to have a shot at advancing to the finals. Balfour gets a dump to pick up a quick four points and has Mekhi on his back. Lewis fights free but that's not the start he was looking for. 4-0 lead for Balfour who was beaten 12-2 by Lewis yesterday. Lewis can't get penetrate Balfour defenses and Jevon takes a 4-0 lead to the break.
2nd Period: Lewis picks up his pace but Balfour counters, jumps behind and scores two more. He extends his lead to 6. 2 minutes remaining. Lewis working hard but Balfour hanging tough. A step out with about 9 seconds to go gives Lewis his first points. A downblock go-behind gives Lewis 2 more and its a more manageable 3 point deficit. Another takedown and its 6-5. Now Lewis locks up a lace and it's trouble for Balfour. Mekhi gets going and he doesn't stop until he picks up 17 points. Down 6 late Mekhi digs deep and gets it down. Balfour is understandably displeased with the result.
86: Nate Jackson vs. Drew Foster
1st Period: Foster won this one 4-3 yesterday. A flurry to start and Jackson ships Foster over for an early 4 points, exceeding his offense from last match already. A step out makes it 5-0 before a minute has come off the clock. Double leg CRAMM for Jackson into a lace for two more turns and just like that, Nate Jackson runs through Foster for the revenge 11-0 tech!
97: Ty Walz vs. Jacob Cardenas
1st Period: Two techs have SE/NJ leading Spartan in technical points 10-7. Walz will be favored to extend that lead as he beat Cardenas 10-1 in pool play. An early takedown gives Walz a 2 point with lots of time left in the first. A couple flurries initiated by both wrestlers but no more scores as we enter short time. And the period ends 2-0.
2nd Period: We begin the second, both wrestlers take center with a grim countenance. A determined Walz shoots and reshoots Cardenas out of bounds to make it 3-0. Walz follows it up with a single leg for two more and a 5-0 lead. 1:27 left in the match. Spartan needs a point by Cardenas or else SE/NJ will have the dual locked up and the extra $17,500 guaranteed for making the finals. Cardenas throwing everything he's got at Walz but Ty counters and collects two at the boundary. Cardenas keeps coming but Walz does his job and fends off the young Cornellian. That clinches is for SE/NJ as the bench celebrates
125: Jordan Wood by forfeit
With the dual sinched up, Spartan Combat will save Dom Bradley's strength for the 3rd place bout, coming up in less than 30 minutes. SERTC/NJRTC gets revenge and will wrestle Cliff Keen in the finals.
Cliff Keen WC vs Wolfpack RTC
57: Seth Gross vs. Jakob Camacho
1st Period: Quick shot from Camacho off the whistle, parried away from Gross. Camacho in team again, gets underneath and drives Gross into the mat for 2. A scramble after that ends in zero points so a 2-0 lead for Camacho early, not an unfamiliar position for Gross to be in, who grows stronger and more dangerous the deeper he goes into a match. Gross works his way behind for a methodical 2 in the next scramble, then his par terre game takes over and just like that its 8-2. Camacho steps over the last turn attempt to get two back to make it 8-4. A takedown in short time for Gross and we got to the break with 14 points on the board, Gross leads 10-4.
2nd Period: Camacho takes the bait as Gross leads with his left leg. He scrambles for two and then does his thing on top and it's a 14-4 tech fall for Seth Gross.
65: Alec Pantaleo vs. Tariq Wilson
1st Period: Pantaleo has been looking sharp all weekend and starts things off with a low single leg that he converts for the first score on his initial shot. A shot from Tariq and Pantaleo pounces on a reattack go behind but there are no scores. The next time Tariq shoots in though Pantaleo picks a knee and collects two more. No turns so its 4-0 in favor of Pantaleo with about a minute to go in the first. Single leg for Pantaleo and he runs the pike and thunders Tariq to the mat for four big points. A gut wrench later and that'll do it. Pantaleo with the 10-0 tech and Cliff Keen is rolling after two bouts.
74: Logan Massa vs. Tommy Gantt
1st Period: Massa lunges right on the whistle and they're in a scramble. Massa has both arms behind Gantt's but needs to get a leg out to secure the two. It's stalemated before he can finish the sequence and the Cliff Keen bench disagrees. No scores after 90 seconds, Gantt goes on the clock. Massa thumb blocks Gantt to keep him off his legs and out of danger and picks up the first point from the activity clock. Massa gets a passivity warning but no other scores in the period and we go to the break, Massa leading by a point.
2nd Period: Lots of movement but no more scores and Massa goes on the clock with about 2:30 to go in the match. Massa concedes the point. Gantt and Massa trade attacks and both come close but no scores. It's 1-1 with a minute to go, Gantt leads on criteria. Massa circling, cutting off angles and gets a step out to take the lead. Gantt finds a single, switches to a double and regains the lead. A bent leg bow and arrow leads to two rather painful-looking turns and Gantt gets some insurance points. Its 7-2 with under 30 to go. Massa gets a caution and one as Gantt backs out of bounds but that's how the match ends, 7-3. Impressive work from Gantt and the Wolfpack get back in the dual.
86: Myles Amine vs. Trent Hidlay
1st Period: The pivotal bout gets underway. No surprise to see Trent throw in underhooks early. He gets through Amine's defenses to take an early 2-0 lead. Collar ties for the next 90 seconds or so. Handfighting but not much in the way of attacks. Passivity warnings but that's it for the period. Still 2-0 Hidlay in the lead.
2nd Period: A tactical bout continues. Reattack from Hidlay lands again and he's got a 4 point leads with over 2 minutes left in the match. Amine gets on his offense, reaching for a single, adjusting, and finishing for two to cut the lead in half. 90 seconds remaining. Hidlay jabs in a hook, Amine clutches a tricep and tries a firemans. Its stalemates. 30 seconds to go. Amine furiously attacking, he gets a step out for one. More attacks, Hidlay circles. And time runs out. Hidlay instructs the Wolfpack bench to get fired up as he raises the roof. Raucously fun bout and the Wolfpack are smelling blood in the water.
97: Dom Abounader vs. Mike Macciavello
1st Period: Cliff Keen sends out an undersized Abounader as TJ Dudley appears to be dinged up. Mach wastes no time, driving Abounader to the far side of the mat and then turning him for two, chucking Dom into the scorers table in the process. A brief interlude as we reconnect some cables and action resumes. Still 2-0 with 2 minutes in the first. Mach keeps the pressure on, drive Abounader towards the Cliff Keen bench and gets a step out. Dom gets in on a single but can't finish. In the scramble its Macchiavello who seizes the advantage and he extends his lead to 5-0, which is the score at the break.
2nd Period: Lots of wrestling in short offense but Dom more scores after two minutes. Abounader trying to score a single bound for classification purposes while also avoiding giving up a tech. A mad scramble as Abounader bounces from one side of Mach to the other and finally he collects a takedown. 25 seconds to go, the Wolfpack want a tech, Cliff Keen wants to keep it to a decision. Mach gets two more but that's how it ends, 7-2 in favor of Macchiavello.
125: Mason Parris vs. Nick Gwiazdowski
1st Period: It'll come down to heavyweight with a spot in the finals on the line. Second place is a guaranteed $17,500 extra for the winners of the dual. It's 11-10 in technical points in favor of Cliff Keen so it's winner take all no matter what. Last time these two wrestled it was a wild 18-8 tech for Gwiq. Parris scored the first 8, Gwiz the next 18.
We start with a scramble, Gwiz collects the two, then more scrambling but no scores in par terre. An active first minute for these athletic heavies. We'll pause to restart the clock, wires came loose again. The technical team recovered quickly and we're back in action. An attack by Gwiz but it's Parris who counters to collect the two and leads via criteria, 2-2. Gwiz was in on a single but the period expires before much of anything can happen. Both benches are fired up!
2nd Period: Final period, winner take all. Low shot by Parris and he converts cleanly. It's 4-2. Gwiz can take the lead with a two-point move. 2:30 remaining. Gwiz taking ground, Parris drops ona shot, he circles and finishes for two on the boundary. It's 6-2 Parris in the lead with 90 seconds left in the bout. Snatch single and Gwiz picks up a step out point. FInal 60 seconds, 3 point lead for Parris. Misdirection single and Gwiz converts. He transitions to a gut wrench and takes the lead, 7-6. Now Parris on a low double and he retakes the lead. A lace for two more and that could ice it. 5 seconds to go and that's it. Heroic effort by both heavies but it's Cliff Keen that takes the dual on classification points!
What a dual! The Cliff Keen bench goes wild!
