Sakaguchi with a quick TD in the first, then racks up 1:45 plus in RT.
Sak starts the 2nd on the bottom.
Both wrestlers trade escapes and the match ends 4-2 (with a RT point for Sak)
Ivanov has choice in the 2nd and chooses Neutral.
Ivanov in on a single with :30 left in the 2nd to tie it. Pena able to square up but not escape, Ivanov clutches the leg and stops trying to improve, gets dinged for stalling, Pena with a quick 1 after the restart.
Pena takes down for the third.
Pena out immediately and is in on Ivanov's leg quickly. Pena with a single isolated it gets stalemated, Ivanov gets a TD to tie it but Pena has RT. Ivanov cuts him and then hits a firemans to Pena's back.
Ivanov wins 8-5 I think. Not sure as they showed the FREAKING FANS at the end of the match INSTEAD OF SHOWING THE MATCH , so I have no idea if Ivanov got the fall or not. Why would you show the fans celebrating DURING A FREAKING MATCH!!!!
Current team scores
OSU 11 BSU 6 heading into 165. Pena needs to calm down and secure the win instead of constantly looking for the fall. He seemed to be playing cat and mouse with Ivanov trying to pick his time for a big move to Ivanov on his back in the end of that match. If he would have kept pressing him I think he pulls it out instead of getting taken to his back and nearly pinned.
Beavers need to not get bonused here as Latham is a big gaping hole in the lineup.
Latham gives up two at the very end of the first and then is on top to start the second. He gives up a quick 1 there too.
second period ends and the feed goes black. . . no idea what the score was
feed is finally back up but they're filming the scoreboard (just the riding time not the scores) and not the wrestling). Hopefully we get good video or at least audio back soon so we can have an idea of who's wrestling and what the score is.
Thanks for the updates, I hope you don't lose your mind with the terrible coverage...
