Mizzou vs. Virginia Dual Match-by-Match Breakdown

Lewis was the well deserved hero here and Eierman deserves equal props. It was a solid dual win and I am glad the team battled through the adversity and took some lumps, but still managed to come out with a win here. For this team to start four freshman and be absent two regular starters and still manage a win was pretty incredible.

Dylan Wisman Maj. #15 Will Schany 10-2 (MIZZ 4-0)

Thoughts: Wisman came out and looked great. His Hi-C was a dangerous weapon early and he wrestled through positions really well throughout the bout. Wisman scored right at the end of the first and second periods. It was really tactical smart wrestling. Wisman’s bottom work was really efficient and I cannot emphasize enough how well he scrambled in this one. Schany had no answer for Wisman’s effort and in the third period for his conditioning. This was a big win for Wisman and we could see him in the rankings soon.

#8 Jay Aiello Dec. Wyatt Koelling 11-9 SV1 (MIZZ 4-3)

Thoughts: Koelling wrestled really hard throughout and responded to adversity well. Koelling’s counter game was great as he scored two takedowns off bad Aiello shots and one reversal on the edge when Aiello stopped wrestling. I thought Koelling wrestled really well from the bottom position, but could have done more work on top. Great effort from Koelling. Hopefully it shows him that he is right there with some of the best wrestlers in this weight class.

Quinn Miller Dec #11 Zach Elam 6-3 (UVA 6-4)

Thoughts: Elam came out and wrestled well here early. His takedown in the first period was a really nice counter TD to a spin behind.
