Justin Patrick (BU) Dec. Barlow McGhee 11-10 SV
Thoughts: McGhee’s offense in this bout was great. He scored five takedowns and gave up just one, yet he lost this match. McGhee stopped wrestling after the first period. He had no gas left and he stalled so much that his opponent was allotted three stall points including one in overtime to lose the bout. His shots were so incredibly crisp, that it was astonishing to see him fall apart the way he did. This one was tough to watch. Hopefully McGhee can get back on track, because his effort late just was not where it needed to be.
#11 John Erneste received a forfeit.
Thoughts: I really wanted to see the Erneste vs. Lantry bout. I guess we will have to wait till MAC’s.
#5 Jaydin Eierman Fall over Nick Casella
Thoughts: Eierman looked a bit sloppier than usual in this bout, but he is such an incredible talent it did not matter here. He gave up a reversal, which could hurt against better competition.
