Never in doubt for the Arrows as a lot of new faces popped into the lineup making for a pretty solid dual to watch. Cedar started and ended with their biggest hammers, Ringler and Serbenta, but in between Lowell won ten of twelve bouts.
Pretty good quarter here with Gaylord jumping out to a big lead thanks to five straight wins to open the dual. Tecumseh responded by winning four of five after that. One of those included a win by unbeaten Vince Perez, ranked #1 at 119, over unbeaten Chayse LaJoie, ranked #1 at 125. Perez won 5-4 in a great match, flipping the result from their state championship match.
What was supposed to be the best quarterfinal dual will unfortunately be marred by a controversial match at 215. 30 seconds into the match, Shier was called for an illegal slam (100% was, after re-watching the video). Trutzl did not continue after that. Realistically, the dual was over at that point. It's pure speculation right now, but definitely something that a lot of people will be talking about tomorrow. In any event, DeWitt won the final three matches, including an OT win by Quenten Hall to lock up the dual and set up a 2 vs 3 semifinal match.
Another dual that lived up the expectation was between these two teams that traded wins back-and-forth before Goodrich's Juwan Vines and James Penfold put it away with back-to-back falls in the final two matches. Heavyweight Blake Coffell did indeed make his season debut and picked up a crucial 5-1 win over #5 Soto.
