Hesperia looks to avenge January loss to CCC...

#1 Hudson vs. #8 Clinton

119 #3 (112) Roberts 16-0 Johnston

189 HM (171) Grames 70-0 Deshano
215 #8 (189) Ely 73-0 Tschirhart
285 #4 (215) Morgan 79-0 Hurley

Dual Synopsis

Not a ton to be discussed here. Clinton’s regional provided them with a great window of opportunity, and they went ahead and seized that opportunity. However, with 5X reigning champs Hudson up next that window has officially slammed shut. Both teams were in the same individual regional, and Hudson qualified 14 to Clinton’s 0. Thus, any Clinton win over a Hudson starter will be at lease a mild upset, at least based on last weekend’s results.
 

#4 Carson City Crystal vs. #5 Hesperia

wt class CCC score Hesperia
103 Argesinger 0-6 #2 Agens
112 HM Barkley 0-9 #1 (103) Gowens

145 #3 Da. Decker 10-27 #4 Jacobs
152 #2 Di. Decker 16-27 Smith
160 Lattenda 16-33 #6 Workman
171 Bidwell 19-33 Olsen
189 Smith 19-36 Vanderstelt
215 Hopkins 19-39 Graham
285 Osterman 22-39 Ehrke

Dual Synopsis

What a difference a month or two can make. CCC made waves when they knocked off perennial power Hesperia in February, but since then the tables have turned considerably. Several key starters have returned to the lineup for Hesperia that were absent in their previous dual. Conversely, CCC appears to now be without the services of Garner Cusack and Lincoln Burnham, a pair of seniors and likely state placers. Their lineup is still very solid, but I don’t think they’re deep enough to make up for the presumed absence of Cusack and Burnham. 

 

#3 Lawton vs. #6 Springport

wt class Lawton score Springport
103 HM Chapman 6-0 Adams
112 Dekoning 6-4 O'Hearon
119 #5 (112) Torres 9-4 HM Betz
125 Porter 9-8 Teague
130 #2 Barkovich 14-8 Whitmore
135 #3 Menck 18-8 Cortright
140 #9 Smith 21-8 HM (135) Cooper
145 Gray 21-11 HM (140) Tanner
152 #6 O'Donnell 24-11 #8 (145) Caudill
160 Craig 24-14 HM (152) Brady
171 #6 Conner 29-14 Brown
189 VOID 29-20 #1 Cooper
215 VOID 29-26 Hunter
285 Mayfield 32-26 #10 (215) Lammers

Dual Synopsis

Of the D4 quarters, this is the one I expect to be most competitive. Both of these teams managed to stay under the radar a bit this season, but either would be worthy of a spot in the semis. The availability of a few key wresters on both sides remains in question, and their presence, or lack thereof, could very well make or break the dual. For Lawton, 2013 SQ’s Blake Parker and Beach have not competed in quite some time. Without them I think Lawton is a mild favorite, but if they can get both back it would make this a very tough dual for Springport to win. On the other side of things, Sean O’Hearon was a hammer freshman all year for Springport, but did not compete at districts. Of the 3 mentioned I think he is most likely to compete, and also probably the most critical to his team’s chances of advancing. 
 

#2 New Lothrop vs. #7 Norway

wt class New Lothrop wt class Norway
103 #3 Krupp 6-0 #10 Decremer
112 A. Birchmeier 6-6 Hoffart
119 #3 Hersch 12-6 Huddleston
125 #4 D. Birchmeier 16-6 Houle
130 #4 Bennett 22-6 Tomczak
135 #10 Copes 22-9 T. Gonzales
140 #3 Garza 25-9 #8 C. Gonzales
145 #2 Bauman 31-9 Spade
152 E. Birchmeier 31-12 Z. Gonzales
160 #1 Wendling 37-12 Comstock
171 #1 Krupp 43-12 HM Bonetti
189 #3 Symons 49-12 Moon
215 #8 Clark 55-12 Moon
295 #8 Robertson 58-12 Siegel

Dual Synopsis

Norway has really emerged as a U.P. power of the past couple seasons, and will be making their second consecutive appearance in BC. However, like last year they find themselves a bit overmatched in the quarters. There will be some good individual battles scattered throughout, but New Lothrop simply has too much firepower for this dual to be overly close.
