The dual will start at 174

UNI vs Iowa State
174 – Curt Maas vs #12 Tanner Weatherman
1st: Here we go, hand fighting to start, and Maas gets a hand to the eye. Restart, Weatherman with a head fake, nothing, now he gets in on a single leg and nearly gets NF points, but just the T2, and Maas gets out, 2-1 now. You can hear Schwab clear as day on the broadcast, that’s always fun. Maas gets in on a low single leg but Weatherman drapes over the back and snags Maas’ leg for a stalemate. That’ll be the end of the 1st, 2-1 Weatherman leads

2nd: Weatherman down to start, he’s up and out right away 3-1. Handfighting again, Weatherman with a shot from a mile away Maas fights it off. ISU coaching staff wants stalling on Maas. Weatherman now with a shot Maas drapes over the top, now the classic ankle pass but Maas has the leg still…scramble now still and Maas nearly gets the T2 himself but Weatherman stands up and gets out, OOB restart. Weatherman with another double leg attempt off the restart, nearly gets the fall on Maas but Maas had a leg, no T2 and no fall, still 3-1 to the third.

3rd: Caution Weatherman, Maas down to start, he’s up and out with a sit out, 3-2 now. Maas with his second or third shot attempt on the match no matter what the commentators/ISU coaches say. Weatherman in on a shot but Maas fights it off and gets an underhook but OOB. Weatherman with a shot but nothing, Maas with a half re-shot and Weatherman gets around for the T2, 5-2 now. Maas up and out, no never mind he was on the ankle but Maas. That’ll be your final.

2nd: Lux down to start the second, he tripods up, Weatherspoon just holding on, they go OOB. Lux sits, now back to base and now gets flattened out.

Gadson with a half shot, nothing doing. Another double leg attempt by Gadson, Minto fights out of it. Double underhook now by Gadson, shrugs him down and gets both ankles for the T2 as they go OOB. 2-0. Restart Minto rolls out, he’s out for sure and then Gadson gets a close body to body hold and inside trip and they both roll through but Minto ends up on his back for a NF3, that’s a four point swing, Gadson leads 6-1 to the 2nd.

2nd: Gadson down to start the 2nd. Minto with a caution. Gadson up on his feet but Minto has both feet in, but he gets shrugged off and Gadson gets the E1. 7-1 now.

285 – #11 Blaize Cabell vs Quean Smith
1st: First ranked wrestler for UNI so far today. Commentator says, “Cabell, rhymes with Scrabble” for this of you wondering how commentators figure out how to say his name. Smith in on a shot on the edge but Cabell too quick for him, they go OOB. Heavyweight stuff now, not a lot of action. Cabell with a shot but nothing, Smith nearly gets around him but nothing. That’s pretty much it for the first period.

2nd: Cabell down to start, Cabell goes straight up, Smith drops to the ankle, they go OOB. Restart, caution on Smith, he’s doing this goofy thing when he covers with his hand, that time he didn’t do it, no caution. Cabell up and out, 1-0 he leads. Tie-ups again, not a lot going on. Restart. Not much going on, Cabell with a single leg attempt on the outside and switches off to the double leg for the T2 with 5 seconds left. 2-0 and they call an E1 for Smith after the horn blows! That’s not a good call and they’re going to review. The call is reversed on the mat, no E1, 3-0 Cabell leads. As an aside, that’s the first time I’ve seen a call reversed all year.

3rd: Smith down to start, he’s up and out right away. 3-1. Smith is in on a single leg but Cabell fights out, big underhooks now in for Smith as Cabell goes for a shot, but Smith lets him out, Smith not really taking any shots, Cabell in on a single leg, Smith on his but now and gets the T2. 5-1, and Smith gets the E1, he wins it.

Match final: 5-2

Team Score: 10-3

125 – #6 Dylan Peters vs Kyle Larson
1st: Both guys on their knees, Peters with a couple half shots but nothing, now Larson with a shot and he powers through but Peters with a cow catcher but can’t hit it before they go OOB. Tie ups now again, commentators really hammering home now that ISU has finished ahead of UNI at the NCAA’s more times than UNI has beat ISU. Larson with a good shot on the edge but can’t get the T2 before they go OOB. Peters looking again for the cow catcher and there he gets it working now and the ref missed the fall at least twice but there’s enough time left for Peters to get the fall with 5 seconds left.

Match final: Peters wins by pinfall, 2:57

Team Score: 10-9 to intermission

Gaul down on one leg, hall going right to that leg, gets it up and gets around, but Gaul hits a standing switch but can’t finish, Hall gets in on a double leg and gets the T2. 2-0 he leads. Optional start and it’s 2-1. Gaul with a half shot, nothing. Tie up, Gaul again with a shot but nothing again. Hall with a duck under try but nothing.

Restart, Gaul to his base tripods, and hits a reversal, really nice move there by Hall. 4-1 he leads. Restart, Gaul sits out and stands up but Hall returns him.

Gaul has hand control but can’t get up, tripods up now but can’t get it, Gaul with a sit out now but Hall brings him back down and again nearly gets NF points but nothing scored. 4-1 to the third.

3rd: Gaul down to start, he’s up and out. Commentators/fans want stalling on Gaul for being down on one knee, the commentator not Jim Gibbons is MAD about it. Hall not doing anything to get Gaul off his knee though. Sorry commentary is more interesting than the match right now. Theres a tie-up, and Hall hits a go by for a T2. 6-2, but theres the E1, 6-3 and there’s a body to body for Hall at the end. 9-3 the final

Match final: 9-3 Hall

141 – Jake Hodges vs Dante Rodriguez
1st: Hodges in deep on a single leg off the start but can’t quite turn around, there he gets it…and as Rodriguez gets his own single leg PD is called. Rodriguez with a double overhook and inside trip and has Hodges on his back on the edge. A full two minutes left for Rodriguez to get the fall here, but Hodges fights out and squares up as they go OOB. 5-0 lead for Rodriguez. Restart, Rodriguez is riding hard, working for another turn. Jackson is having a conversation with the official about something, he is warned. Restart, Hodges is up but back down, Rodriguez with an arm and is looking for a tilt but nothing doing, and then hits a tilt the other way and gets the NF2. 7-0 to the third.

2nd: Hodges down to start, hey I heard the ref count for the shot clock, he’s back down and Rodriguez is really high as they call a stalemate.

Two on one for Hodges gets nothing, but now a single leg for Hodges, but time runs out, 7-1.

3rd: Rodriguez down to start, he looks tired now but that might just be me. Hodges riding tough now, Rodriguez has his head down on the mat, Hodges can’t really get anything going on the ride, and there he hits a switch for the R2 and now has Hodges on his back, ref counts the NF3, but Hodges fights out again, but that’s the match.

Match final: 14-1 with RT

Wolfensperger has the leg still and now fights up but they’re belly-to-back and Wolfensperger gets the high single leg and gets the R2. 2-2 as they go OOB.

Restart, Moreno can’t get out, Wolfensperger working hard to keep Moreno down and he nearly gets out but no call on the E1, it’s 3-2 Moreno to the 2nd. Wait now there’s a review on the E1.

Wolfensperger up to his hands and a knee now, kind of a cross body in but Moreno not really doing anything. Wow Wolfensperger nearly had a defensive fall there but Moreno rolls out, 6-2 to the third.

3rd: Wolfensperger down to start, he sits out but Moreno has an ankle and brings him back down to the mat, flattens him out now.

Stalemate with 8 seconds left on the edge, if I were Ironside I wouldn’t be happy with that call, they weren’t OOB and Jensen was still working.

Goettl with a shot, nothing, Jensen with a reshot and hits a double leg for the T2. 4-0 Jensen, OOB restart. Jensen with a claw ride rolls with Goettl as he does but Goettl gets the E1. 4-1 but Goettl has RT still, and he has an inside leg lace but can’t finish.
