A rematch of a Week 1 dual won by DCC, 48-24. The Shamrocks have added some pieces since then; for Glenn, it's more or less the same lineup as December 8.
Opportunities to take matches for the Rockets will be slim, but best bets are from 103-125. It'll be a regional final rematch at 103 with #3 Walker and #5 Mars, and then a rubber match with state qualifiers White and Cowen at 112, who split bouts last Saturday.
Not surprisingly, CC should roll to their third straight finals appearance, but John Glenn never goes down without a fight.

This is going to be not only one of the best duals of the weekend, but one of the best duals you can match-up in the state period. Brighton enters the dual ranked 21st in the country, Davison sits at 38th. Between the two rosters, there are 30 current or former state qualifiers.
The two wrestled December 7 in a dual Brighton won by 11. Since then, Davison has added Aden Williams, Jaron Wilson, and Jimmy Colley. Brighton adds Rhett Newton to their lineup. Both teams made moves at weigh-ins as well - the Bulldogs dropped Grabowski to 145, Davison double-entered Chambal/Wilson at 25 and Facundo/Nivison at 60. The Cardinals' moves potentially set up two matches between #1s in Homrock-Chambal and Facundo-Shettler.
Every weight is important and will feature two quality wrestlers. Whoever can muster bonus points is going to walk away with this one though, as you're looking at probably a 7-7 split and both teams scoring in the 20s.

Awesome matchup here featuring a rematch of last year's semifinal won by the Hornets. New Lothrop will be looking to advance to their 13th state final and sixth-straight. Clinton on the other hand is attempting to advance to their first in school history.
Lots of swing matches in this one as well - 112, 119, 125/130, 145, 171, 189/215, and 285. The flip will be important, with both teams looking to make the other team send first at 125/145/160/189.
Clinton has the lineup to win this one, and as hard as it is to pick against New Lothrop, they are the favorite to advance. Expect an entertaining dual that could go either way and lots of action throughout.

Hudson's quest for a three-peat will go through a very good Carson City squad. Both teams are at full strength, so look for a fantastic dual.
The Tigers dropped Hamdan to 130 to try and force a matchup with Ward. Similarly, they double-entered Price and Betz at 160, with the assumption that they're looking to get Price on Seida there. Carson City doesn't have as much flexibility, but they do have ten state qualifiers which makes for a strong lineup up and down.
For CC-C to make a run at winning this one, they'll need to control 135-152 and 171-285. Conversely, if Hudson gets on a roll they could put this one away early.
