Southern Scuffle Session III Results – Semifinals and Round of 12 set

The Cyclones had a rough quarterfinal round as the lost Gabe Moreno (149) and Tanner Weatherman (174). Moreno was able to score a reversal in his match to knot the score at 2-2, but after that it was all Bright in that match. Weatherman fell down early to Eblen, and mounted a late comeback by picking up a takedown-release, and was back in on another shot, but didn’t finish and lost 7-3.

Earl Hall (133) continues to be a bright spot in the Iowa State lineup as he was able to get some revenge on George DiCamillo, who knocked Hall out of the Cliff-Keen Las Vegas quarterfinals last month. Hall hit a cement mixer to pin DiCamillo to advance to the semifinals where he will face Penn State’s Jimmy Gulibon.

Kyle Larson (125) opened Cyclone action this morning with a 3-2 win to continue his quest to finish on the stand. In his next match he won 7-2 over his opponent from Drexel to advance to the Round of 12.

Marcus Harrington (197) advanced past teammate Kyven Gadson on medical forfeit in the consolation matches. Unfortunately he wrestled a tough Owen Scott of Cornell who knocked him out just short of the Round of 12.

Quean Smith (285) lost his early morning consolation match 5-2 to be eliminated from the tournament.

Willie Miklus (184) powered his way to the semifinals with a high scoring affair, picking up a 18-10 major decision over his Oklahoma State opponent. Miklus will face tournament top seed Gabe Dean of Cornell next.

Mikey England (165) picked up a tough 4-0 win over Jesse Shanaman, but then lost to Marshall Peppelman to finish a win shy of the Round of 12.

Dakota Friesth (165) of Wyoming (and Adel, IA) lost his quarterfinal match to NCAA champion Alex Dieringer by technical fall. Friesth fell behind 5-0 in the first and was never able to get going against the Oklahoma State wrestler.
