Cornel vs hofstra a lot closer than the score

Recommended Posts

Wenting with my dad to this match hoping for the best but fearing the worst. Hofstra was up 15-3 heading into dake just a great match ended 30-15. First comment the ref was strange, thought the hofstra coaches pick the ref he was very inconsistent, calling stalemates much quicker on hofstra wrestler when they had the advantage, never calling cautions when many cornel lighter weight wrestlers were backing up and calling takedowns much earlier for cornel wrestlers. Basically same breakdown position sort of like the stieber vs oliver position as soon as hofstra wrestler got there he called two but when a cornel guy got there he waited. Bonnano was beaten by garret just a bit stronger, not sure if bonnano is pulling to much weight but just does not have the explosiveness from last year. Franco looked great wearing down an opponent who was backing up and should of been called for stalling. Vaith wrestled great beat nevinger wrestled a pretty perfect match from the feet and rode great countering those tricky nevinger hip we got an AA contender if he wants to shoot and attack, been very impressed with him. He would of beat ballweg as well just as to keep attacking. 149 lbs ruggirello wrestled a back up who was still a credentialed wrestled and won easy. Tyler banks looked great, slowed a bit in the late second and pulled out the win. Than it got not so good. Dake is unbelievable, one of the best of all time i may not love him but god can he wrestle. Jermaine John was in the match and this was really the decider, but just did not attack enough, he got caught standing around a few times not moving his feet and paid for it. But his next level if he get there could be close to AA. Than we were just outmatched bosak is tremendous, national champ, and probably AAA. 197 was the same thing. Left when synder was up but saw he injury defaulted so ended 30-15 probably would of been 24-18 if snyder won. Does anybody know the status of snyder hope it was not too bad need him for binghamton.

 

It was a small crowd because hall high school wrestlers and coaches were at divisionals so you got close up and could really see the action. Also average age of the fan was older than usual. Coach shifflet was on hand as well. Great day of wrestling from a fan perspective.

agreed. Hofstra looked very good. CU was ripe for the beating. Not sure what happened at heavy or why Villalonga makes weight for the second match but not Hofstra. Good to see Hofstra getting back on its feet again. They have a good recruiting base on the island if they can tap it.
