D1 #1 DCC def. D1 #7 Hartland, 54-22

Starting at 171, the Shamrocks jumped out to a huge early lead thanks to four falls and a major decision.  Hartland battled back, narrowing the gap to 32-22 after winning four of five from 112-135.  DCC closed the door by winning the final four matches by either tech or pin.

D3 #1 Dundee def. D2 #9 New Boston Huron, 55-16

Neither team was at full strength but Huron suffered a little bit more without some of their big guns.  Dundee took 11 of the dual matches, including the final six, to win 55-16.  Perhaps most impressively was freshman Casey Swiderski weighing in at 114 to bump to 125 to take on returning all-stater David Jividen; Swiderski won the match by major.

Notable Match Results
125 - #1 Casey Swiderski (D) maj. #2 David Jividen (NBH) 16-8

160 - #1 Stoney Buell (D) dec. #6 Adam Brenner (NBH) 4-1

D2 #4 Eaton Rapids def. D2 #8 St. Johns, 42-33

A back-and-forth affair, this dual lived up to the expectation.  Highlighted by a rematch of last year's state finals between James Whitaker and Caleb Fish, Fish reversed the outcome and picked up a fall in double overtime to lift the Greyhounds.  Though the teams split matches 7-7, Eaton Rapids won all their bouts by fall of forfeit which made the difference.

Notable Match Results
103 - #2 Jacob Brya (SJ) fall #10 Jay Shaull (ER) 0:19
119 - Cody Wood (SJ) dec. #8 Robert Davids (ER) 7-2

D1 #6 Oxford def. D1 #9 Westland John Glenn, 32-31

Glenn closed the gap on MIG's prediction and nearly pulled off a big upset in this one.  To illustrate just how close this dual was, the largest lead by either side at any point was 8.  Austin Schlicht's fall at heavyweight sealed the deal as it put the Cats up by 7 heading into the final bout.
