1st: They’re playing “Party in the USA” right now, and my crack research team tells me that this is the first time a Miley Cyrus song has been played in Carver during a wrestling meet. #TheMoreYouKnow. Not a lot of action in the first, mostly just handfighting and neither guy takes a shot, and we go to the second.
2nd: Bennett is down to start, he’s up but back down, and they go OOB. Restart, caution on Bennett.

1st: Sorry I was updating the Twitter, Lyon gets a T2 off a poor shot by Pedro. E1 for Pedro and it’s 2-1 as we have bloodtime. Blood taken care of, we have some handfighting but no shots to speak of, and we go to the second.
2nd: Pedro has the double nose plug, something you don’t see every day. he also starts down, and he tries to sit but Lyon goes with him, they go flat again, but Pedro fights up and out to get the E1. He shoots low and wraps up the ankles as Lyon nearly kicks out but can’t, and it’s 4-2 after the T2. E1 for Lyon on a restart, 4-3 with 30 seconds left in the period.

Kaden Gfeller (Heritage Hall, Okla.) vs. Jamie Hernandez (Oak Park River Forest, Ill.)
1st: Both of these guys are ranked fourth in the country, They go through a feeling-out process before Hernandez hits a snap single leg and gets around for the T2 (I’m not doing that justice, that was a really slick move). Hernandez rides tough on a restart, but Gfeller gets the E1 in a weird sequence. Hernandez pushes forward but time runs out on the first. 2-1 he leads.
2nd: Gfeller is down but he’s up and out to make it 2-2. Handighting again, but now we get a break as Gfeller was poked in the eye I think. They restart, and Gfeller ties up and tries a real nice outside trip, but Hernandez rolls through and we stalemate. Restart but we run out of time, 2-2.
3rd: Gfeller is getting his head re-taped, after they ripped off the old tape from all his hair. Wow that must hurt. Hernandez is down to start, Gfeller tries for a cradle but that didn’t work as Hernandez faces him and drives him OOB, 3-2. Now a crazy sequences leave Gfeller on top but Hernandez has a leg and they roll through, Gfeller working for the T2 and backs, but no call and with 1:00 left they restart. No shots really now and 30 seconds left, stalling on Hernandez but Gfeller needs to turn it up if he’s going to score, but he can’t and Hernandez wins 3-2.
Match Score: Hernandez 3-2
Team Score: Team Red 34-15
Colton Schultz (Ponderosa, Colo.) vs. Jared Campbell (St. Edward, Ohio)
1st: Campbell gets snapped down and Schultz gets around him, no T2 yet because Campbell is on his feet but Schultz puts him down for the T2. And now Schultz is working the tilt, and gets a NF3 but Campbell gets a reversal as Schultz can’t hold on to the tilt, it’s 5-2 with 40 seconds left. Schultz gets up and out so it’s 6-2. They tie up again, and there’s a restart. Schultz with a little shove at the end there, but we move forward. Restart and that’s the first.
2nd: Campbell on bottom to start, he’s up and out, 7-3. Schultz scored a point on a late 1st period pushout, that’s why he has 7. Not a lot of action here, oh but Campbell with an outside single, but nothing doing. They tie up but that’s pretty much it for the period.
3rd: Schultz goes down to start, but the optional start by Campbell makes it 8-3. They’re just leaning on each other at this point, which seems kind of odd. There’s another outside single by Campbell and he gets the T2, and then cuts him, so it’s 9-5. 1 minute left. Stalling on Campbell, but he pushes Schultz out again, so it’s 10-5. 20 seconds left. They tie up but that’s it,
Match Score: Schutz 10-5
Team Score: Team Red takes it, 37-15 (it might have been 33-14, I might have messed it up somewhere along the line, sorry about that).
