Southern Scuffle Results – Medal matches set

Earl Hall (133) continues his rampage through the Scuffle tournament as he makes the 133 finals for the Cyclones. After a scoreless first period, Hall picked up two takedowns over Penn State’s Jimmy Gulibon to really build his lead and he finished with a score of 5-2. Tonight, Hall will face Michigan’s Rossi Bruno, who is coming off a big upset of his own over Mason Beckman of Lehigh. Bruno will hold the edge over Hall in the rankings, but Hall is riding a two match upset streak and will look to push it to three.

Tanner Weatherman (174) put up a strong performance in his Round of 12 match as he pinned Army’s Jack Wedholm in 4:44. With that win Weatherman secured his spot on the stand and it was up to him to determine what spot that would be. In the consolation quarterfinals, Crutchmer of Oklahoma State added a takedown with under :05 left in the match to win 3-1. Weatherman will wrestle for 7th.

Kyle Larson (125) fell 6-2 to Sean Boyle (Chattanooga) to end his tournament. Coming in unseeded, finishing in the final 12 is what you like to see from Larson.

Gabe Moreno (149) also fell in his Round of 12 match to Colin Heffernan (Central Michigan) whom Moreno beat earlier in the team’s dual matchup 7-6.

Willie Miklus (184) championship side dominance came sadly to an end when he ran into Gabe Dean in the semifinals. Dean was able to take an early 2-0 lead in the match and never relinquished it. On the backside Miklus had a 8-7 lead late in his consolation semifinal (with just over a minute of riding time), but his opponent Matt McCutheon hit a late match takedown to not only take the lead 9-8, but also accumulated enough riding time to drop Miklus’s total riding time under a minute and therefore clinching the match. Miklus will wrestle for 5th last night.

Dakota Friesth (165) of Wyoming (and Adel, IA) picked up a major in the Round of 12 over Duke’s Brian Dorsey to secure a spot on the medal stand. His next match was against Marshall Peppelman (who took out former Iowa prep Mikey England last round) who pinned Friesth in :13. Friesth will wrestle for 7th tonight.

The finals air at 6:00 PM tonight on FloPro.
