Sorry I havenít been posting lately I have just been really busy, have had 1 duel and 1 tournament. Also I think I have some torn ligaments in my shoulder which had been no fun.
My match in the tournament was going really well, I entered the third round 7-3. But my conditioning was apparently horrible, I was standing straight up and that let the guy take me down pretty easily making the match 5-7. Then he got me in a half and got some near fall points, which I think then it was 8-7. I donít really remember much after that except knowing I was behind and trying to rush the takedown and the other kid got my back. I was really pissed with myself cause I was dominating him and I know I would have won if I had better conditioning.
Yesterday I went to a JV team tournament and are first match was against some school who I had never heard of. The match started off with me snapping his head down catching a front headlock. I flattened him out then ran the underhooked arm getting him on his back and a first round pin. Are team went on to beat there team.
Are next team was a higher ranked team who we beat them earlier, and my opponent was a huge guy who was extremely tall and buff. I siked out because I had wrestled guys tall guys before. The match started we tied up I worked his head a bit then he shot and took me down with a low single. I tried standing up next thing I know I was thrown and ended up in a cradle. I was somewhat shocked because I had never been dominated like that before. Are team went on to loose though the word was they had sent there varsity team.
So are next matches were for third place and I ended up wrestling a short compact kid. The first round compromised of use feeling each other out and a lot of clinching, at the end of the round I got a single but I didnít beat the timer. Next round was a lot of tying up I knew the kid was to slow to take me down so I played a little bit defensive. I waited for him to take me down but he never did so I took him down.
The last round started with me shooting and taking him down, getting some near fall points from a leg ride and a power half. I donít remember how but somehow we got back to neutral and I shot a double he sprawled got and took my back. I got a stand up and then after that the round was over. I won the match by decision.
Lately Iíve been thinking of dropping to 160 but the only kid behind me for 171 on JV is kind of sucks and wouldnít win much for us. And recon6991 I checked out the spadle and it looks like a hilariously painful and effective move. I will be sure to try it tomorrow. My goals are still the same to work on my shots and get my conditioning up I might even go bust out a few miles today.
