Unfortunately, I will have limited access to follow along today(stupid real life responsibilities...). Hopefully, someone can step up again and give pbp.

Consolations start at 10am Central, semis at noon, conso-semis at 2pm.

Conso:

Henson/Gonyer
Kennedy/Fish

Semis:

Ayala/McKee
Schriever/Foley
Swafford/DeVos
Costello/Fernandes

On paper, looks like some stiff competition for the guys. Gonna be a great test for the young guys(and veterans). Looking forward to see how they perform.

Go Hawks!

Crazy scrambles going on in the match directly before Wyatts. Some really good mat wrestling. Scrambling has really impacted this sport.

Henson gets a double and a tough single leg. He’s up 4-1 heading into the second with 45 seconds of riding time. Which is quickly being erased. Henson chose bottom and hasn’t been able to work his way out. Henson hit with a stall warning. He’s flat and he’ll be ridden out The second period.

Wyatt has to do more on bottom. He based out from the start and didn't even make a move to get out. I know he was likely trying to stay compact off the whistle, but you have to put yourself in a position to escape.
He is horrible on bottom. If he can't make progress he needs to just avoid it if possible.

That’s what these tournaments are for. He’ll get better. Good news is, he appears to be a damn strong 141 for a freshman. When he gets to his double he finishes it pretty quickly. He also has pretty good success with his slide by, he’s got some craftiness on his feet. The bottom will get better.

Some guys never get proficient, just saying.
Dude, is your new year off to a bad start or something?? A pbp/results thread is a weird time to remind people that sometimes wrestlers don't improve, especially when both backup freshman wrestlers we're talking about picked up solid wins. Maybe just wait until they've got half a season of varsity action under their belts before you tell us how there's no improvement???
