    Looking forward to seeing how David Craig looks after a year layoff for Lehigh at 184.

    Hope Craig gets the bonus. Taylor is a pinner, and there's a good chance that if Craig wins, andit's only a regular decision, it's a tie match.

    Like the pin for Craig. Like his prospects to sneak in to the AA picture this year. That was a big Pin for Lehigh. They now take an 18-9 lead in to the last two bouts.

    Taylor gets the fall like I said. Rey-Gilmore for the dual.

    I just got back from Lehigh-Maryland. Awesome dual, tons of action in almost every match. Sold out crowd at Grace Hall was loud as can be. Intense match on both sides, obviously a lot of familiarity. Lehigh looked very improved, especially offensively.

    125-John McDonald is going to be a good one. The difference in the match was him riding the hell out of Byrne in the first period, then once Byrne got out, hitting a double at the end of the period. Byrne stormed back, outwrestled him the 2nd and 3rd, but it was too much of a lead to overcome. I thought Byrne had a takedown at the end that would have forced overtime, but the ref didn't give it to him. He probably would have been shot by the home crowd if he did. Final was 9-8, with the riding time point being the difference. Probably the match of the day.

    133-Steve Bell looked awesome. He's making a jump to the next level. Beat Matt Fisk, a good wrestler, 6-1 in a match that was never really in doubt.

    141-Battle of high school teammates, Alex Krom beat Seth Ciasulli 4-1. Story of the match was Krom just looked much more comfortable in scramble situations. He's so long that even when Ciasulli got good shots in, Alex was able to stretch him out and turn it either into a stalemate or a scoring opportunity for himself. He took Seth down right at the end of the 2nd, then countered a good shot to score as time expired.

    149-One of three big swing bouts Lehigh won. Trevor Chinn wrestled exceptionally well on the edge of the mat to beat Eric Medina. Withstood a late push by Medina and had a takedown of his own at the end to seal the deal.

    157-A big surprise here. Kyle John went down early in a match that looked like it was going to be ugly. But Sean Bilodeau ran out of gas very early, and John took advantage, scoring a huge 4 point reversal in the 2nd, and riding him out the entire 3rd to win 9-6.

    165-This, along with 25, was the match for Lehigh. Mike Galante hit a big 5 point cradle on Brian Letters in the 2nd, and that was enough of a lead to hold him the rest of the way.

    174-I thought Corey Peltier looked very good for a true freshman, but Alex Caruso was too experienced to lose at home. Peltier just couldn't take Caruso down.

    184-I thought the roof was going to come off after this one. Dave Craig stuck Ryan Gray with a double arm bar in the first. Somehow, Craig cut the hell out of his chin, so when he got his hand raised the entire bottom part of his face was covered in blood. Crowd went absolutely ballistic after this.

    197-Joe Kennedy looked good, hanging around against Hudson Taylor for the first period and a half, but Hudson sunk a deep half and pinned him midway through the 2nd.

    285-The match came down to heavyweight. Zach Rey is a massive kid, probably outweighed Gilmore by 40 pounds. He took Gilmore down in the first, and sealed it with a takedown in the 3rd. He looked exhausted at the end, but had enough in the tank to just muscle Gilmore around. He couldn't get past Rey's big paws to create a good scoring opportunity.

    All in all it was a well wrestled match. The Lehigh folks have to be happy. There will be videos up on Flo either tonight or tomorrow. We couldn't film because Lehigh puts all their matches online, but there at least will be a highlight package with some commentary.
