  12. Carton vs Harvey of ICCC

    First thoughts Carton is a lot shorter than his guy and Harvey gets in on Carton’s leg..

    Feel free to comment along love hearing your thoughts!

    Carton gets a high crotch, and scores the match’s first TD with under 2 to go. They go OOB

    Carton works a quick tilt and gets a 2 count, 4-0 lead, Carton in danger of being reversed

    There is the Reversal by Harvey 4-2 Carton 24 seconds left in the 1st

    Carton is out and then gets a TD with short time, good effort by the SO Carton

    1. Carton with a quick reversal to start the second, his lead up to 9-2 now, then he cuts 9-3 lead

      Carton gets in on the leg and there is a scramble, Carton comes out on top 11-3, then he gets reversed, 11-5

      Carton is out and is up 12-5, Give Carton credit, his single leg attack s so quick, in another TD, and gets it with 3 seconds left, he’s got 1:45 RT

      1. Harvey goes down to start 3rd, but doesn’t really hit a move off the whistle. Harvey eventually gets out

        Carton scores on a go behind, up 16-6

        Carton gets another tilt, 3 NF RT locked up, and here comes more NF.

        TF 23-6

        22-0 Iowa

  13. ICCC starts the second down and Dziewa is riding hard. ICCC warned for stalling and Dziewa gets a 3 NF on a tilt. They go nuteral and there is a Dziewa TD 12-2 lead

    More NF here, but he works his butcher for a pinfall 4:34

    17-0 Iowa

  14. Dziewa with a quick TD in under 30, looks like he is going for a ride, as most other matches, Iowa guy has been cutting them rather quick. Dziewa picks up 3 NF

    Now lets his guy up, and ICCC takes a shot and gets in on Josh’s leg, but Josh turns it into his score, looked a little dangerous for a moment he’s got a 7-1 lead into the second

  15. Cory Clark 133:

    Clark working the front headlock early and gets a go behind to go up with a TD in 30 seconds.

    a release and TD, release TD.

    Clark gets in on the leg to go up 6-2 and is now going to get some back points, trying to get a fall but no go 9-2 lead

    Turns him again and this time it’s tight enough

    pinfall 2:07
    11-0 IOwa

  16. So with a 11-4 lead and they go to the center for a restart. ICCC warned for stalling, but is it really stalling or is he also stunned by how quick Gilman can take him down?

    Start the second ICCC goes down, Gilman doesn’t even want to mess around, optional start and ICCC is out 11-5 Gilman lead.

    Gilman getting to the single pretty easy in this match another TD to go up 13-5

    1. Another release and TD by Gilman, lets his guy out to be 15-7

      Delacruz actually gets in on Gilman’s ankle but no score and they restart.

      Gilman gets a quick takedown ends the 2nd up 17-7

      1. Gilman out to start the third.

        Delacruz doubles GIlman almost to his back and not the score is 19-9 after a Gilman escape.

        Gilman fires back with a TD of his own, and lets his guy up. Gets in deep on another single and this time is getting some back points.

        That locks up his TF 27-10, crazy that Gilman had the guy in on his legs a couple times

        5-0 lead

  17. Gilman starting off here against Delacruz.

    The two are tying up and go out of bounds.

    On a restart Gilman gets a takedown and then lets his guy out right away. He’s on the attack

    Gilman quick in on a leg and gets a takedown and lets him out.

    Another takedown, can hardly keep up with Gilman’s pace.

    Another TD 8-3 this time to his back and he’s got 3 NF

    174 #5 Jake Meehan

    184 #6 Bryce Fisher

    197 #8 Pat Downey

    285 #2 Chris Ballard

    Downey is a FS stud, probably underranked and very much a threat

        1. Thanks! Looks like Downey was a nationally ranked recruit that first committed to Oregon State and given his very impressive national freestyle results, he’s a tough matchup for anyone.

  19. Bobby is working his ties and drops down to a leg to get his first takedown and 2-0 lead with 1:40 to go

    Bobby turns his guy over and gets a fall in 1:52

    Iowa wins 55-0

  20. Klapp was in some serious danger of getting takendown for a moment, but he turns it into his score and goes up 7-3, then gives up the escape so Klapp leads 7-4

    Give Klapp credit for continuing to work, he wins 9-4 by getting another takedown with under 5 seconds

    49-0 Iowa lead and we head to Telford vs. Bennett of Baker at 285

  21. A nice shot and takedown for Klapp, his guy gets out though and he’s up 4-2

    This Baker guy is doing a pretty good job of defending anything Klapp tries to do, but so far he hasn’t been able to threaten to do anything to Klapp here.

    We start the second here and Baker guy gets out so Klapp leads it 4-3. Not a ton of action going here.

    Going back and forth between being tied up and then separating.

    Klapp finally goes for a high crotch, but he wasn’t fully committed to it. 4-3 lead as Klapp takes down in the third.

  22. Sammy is trying to score here, but Baker has a whizzer and the ref calls for a restart.

    Sammy hits a shot right away, but it was well defended. Sammy does another shot and gets a TD

    Sammy picks up 3 NF and it’s 5-0 .

    Sammy turns him again for an 8-0 lead, and the bottom man is warned for stalling

  23. Evans has another takedown. Baker’s guy is who was listed at 165, Trevor Sutton.

    Evans picks up a 3 NF to go out 5-0, and starts working another cheap tilt for 3 more NF 8-0

    Evans turns his guy over again 1:45 is the time of the pinfall

    Iowa up 40-0

    184 is Sammy Brooks

  24. Moore starts the second down, he’s out in under 10 seconds. 14-4

    Another TD for Moore. This time he is working the arm of Middleton and he flips on to his back for the pin.

    4:24 pinfall time

    34-0 Iowa, four team pinfalls for those keeping track

    Stache-less Mike Evans up at 174

  25. Moore vs Middleton of Baker:

    Moore get’s in on a single and scores a takedown

    Lets his guy out, and then gets back on another takedown.

    Goes for a tilt and gets a one count, but Middleton gets back to his belly

    Escape Baker, and a takedown by Moore, think it was a duck under.

    Moore scores on a go behind. Lets him up and then takes him down again. Gets a 5 count so there is 3 NF

    GOing to the second he’s up 13-4 with 1:46 in RT

  26. Baker doesn’t look like he wants to be in Kelly’s tie, doing a lot of backing up. Kelly gets in a scoring position but they go out of bounds

    There is the takedown for Kelly, Iowa is really owning the offense today.

    Kelly with a cow catcher and gets a pinfall in 1:32

    Now it’s Nick Moore 28-0 lead

  27. Gives his guy another escape and gets back in on a single and scores. Another escape, Baker warned for stalling. and another Takedown Carton.

    Carton goes on a tear and wins 24-7

    Iowa leads 17-0 after 4 matches, Mike Kelly up at 157

  28. Carton is out quick to push his lead to 9-1.

    Both guys trying ot work the head, Brands is telling Carton to “Pick it up”

    A little shot by Baker, but Carton is fighting those off pretty easily today.

    Carton gets in on a single, but and after a scramble gets a TD to the back, get’s 3 NF so the score is 14-3 after the second. Blood time before the third on Baker

  29. Carton lets his guy up, Baker guy is trying to wear on Carton’s head, Carton is in there fighting back.

    He’s trying to get a go behind and gets a TD up 6-2 with :33 left

    Get’s another quick escape TD with short time, end of the first it’s 8-3 1:26 RT

  30. Carton is the man at 149 today with Grothus, Sorensen, and Cooper heading to an open this weekend.
