Week in Review: 01.30.12

We had a rough weekend in Stillwater.  We have a good team but Oklahoma State exposed some of our weaknesses.  Oklahoma State is the #1 team in the country and we need to make up some ground on them.  We rebounded from that loss to beat Bucknell 36-6.  Steely had two tough losses but battled tough and wrestled pretty well overall.  He wrestled much smarter matches this week and lost by decision to two nationally ranked wrestlers.  Against Avaunt Miller, he gave up a takedown with twenty seconds left to lose by a point in a match that he dominated for six and a half minutes.  Hunter got pinned by a returning national champion but bounced back and dominated his opponent from Bucknell 11-5.  Hunter moved well on his feet and scores both offensively and defensively.  Bonaldi was a little timid this weekend. He started slow both matches but wrestled much better in his second match.  He looked good in the second and third period picking up a solid win over his Bucknell opponent.  Vinson wrestled well overall but missed his opportunity to score a winning takedown late in he match.  Parks scored on two reshots, including the winning takedown late in the third period.  He hammered his Bucknell opponent slamming him down twice and forcing his opponent to quit on his back.  Lister controlled his match with White and was winning 3-1 until about thirty seconds left, where he gave up a takedown and back points to lose a heartbreaker.  He dominated his second opponent,  Leung in every position.  Kaylor had two tough losses and was unable to score offensively. He did not do a good job of setting up his shots.  Watch for him to come back with vengeance in his match this week.  Wallace had a tough one against #4 Perry and was unable to get on his offense.  In his second match, he wrestled very well as he dominated McPeek. He looked very good creating his offensive attacks and turning his opponent.  Schiedel was the top performer of the weekend.  He won both of his matches.  He controlled nationally ranked McNeil for a 2-0 win.  Then, he scored a major decision against Bucknell, blowing the match open with multiple takedowns in the third period.  Reed lost to Rosholt by decision.  He got in deep on a few shots but was unable to finish. He let his opponent get to his legs too easily in the first match.  Against Bucknell, he dominated with a 13-4 win. He scores several takedowns, finishing each time he got on a leg attack.  Gwiazdowski got hammered in his first match.  He showed a little bit of freshman inexperience against probably the best heavyweight in the country.  He will improve and work to close the gap as much as possible by nationals.  He received a forfeit against Bucknell.
