Timberland Escapes With GAC Title

Produced by Scott Hanify

After an eventful Friday Evening, the top 3 teams were separated by 12 points. Francis Howell held a 5 point advantage over Timberland going into the Semi-Finals Saturday morning. Francis Howell had 8 semi-finalists, 6 of which advanced to the finals.
Timberland only had 5 semi-finalists and 3 advanced to the finals. However, the back side of the bracket is where the Timberland succeeded. Between the 2 teams, there was only 1 match-up in the finals at 120 lbs. Timberland was able to pick up bonus points in their wrestlebacks, and placement matches.

In the match that decided the Champion, Francis Howell did not have a heavy weight in a medal match. Timerland had Cody Brave wrestling Cody Imbierwicz from St. Charles. The two had met the night before in the quarter finals with Brace getting a 17-2 Tech Fall. Unfortunately, I was unable to watch the full match, but the glimpses i watched, the matched looked pretty even. Brave managed to get a reversal and put Ibierwicz to his back and pin him. The Timberland wrestlers were ecstatic. You could feel the emotion of joy in the air from Timberland, and disappointment from the Francis Howell crowd.

Finals:

106 lbs. Carter Smith (Holt) earned an early takedowd on Liberty's Cameron Steinhoff and gave up the escape a few seconds later. Late in the first Smith locked up a cradle to get another takedown but was unable to pick up any nearfall. To start the 2nd Smith took down and then got a reversal and put Steinhoff onto his back to earn 2 nearfall points. Steinhoff scrambled off of his back and got an escape. At the end of the 2nd period, Steinhoff took a poor shot and Smith was able to go around and get another takedown. With the score of 10-2 Steinhoff chose to go nuetral. With 40 seconds Steinhoff was able to earn a takedown, worked for nearfall but no points were given. Smith wins 10-4.

113 lbs. Anthony Piscotta (Timberland) earned an early takedown against Nathan Undertajlo (Holt). 15 seconds later Undertajlo earned an escape. Shortly after, the wrestlers were tied up and Piscotta hit a textbook ankle pick to end the 1st period up 4-1. Piscotta chose bottom to start the 2nd. Undertajlo was riding legs and got out of position and Piscotta was able to earn the reversal. Undertajlo was almost able to get a reversal until a stalemate was called. Piscotta was warned for stalling. Undertajlo earned an escape and was almost able to lock up a cradle but time had expired before points were awarded. To start the 3rd, Piscotta was able to pick up another takedown before giving an escape. Piscotta was able to lock up a cradle for a takedown and get 2 nearfall. Piscotta won a 12-4 Major Decision.
