Michigan 2017 Intrasquad Dual Notes







125 pounds:


Drew Mattin (Maize) dec. Austin Assad (Blue): 4-0


This was the second match between these two, as Assad won the first match yesterday in practice.


Mattin score first with a low single and rides Assad pretty hard for the remainder of the first period, and for the entire second as well after Assad choses down at the beginning of the period, racking up over 4:30 of riding time.


Mattin gets out early in the third, and there is no further scoring as true freshman Mattin pulls off the upset.  Assad’s leg is completely wrapped, and looks like he’s still having issues.





133 pounds


Stevan Micic (Maize) maj.dec. Mike Volyanyuk (Blue): 18-5


Micic is businesslike, scoring pretty much at will against Volyanyuk.





141 pounds


Sal Profac (Blue)i dec. Ben Freeman (Maize): 4-3


Feeman gets a slick TD in the first minute, but can only hold on for a few seconds.  The two trade escapes at the beginning of the second and third, before Profaci nails a TD in the last seconds to win the match and the series.





149 pounds:


Malik Amine (Blue) dec.Tyler Meisinger (Maize):: 8-1


Redshirt freshman Meisinger starts out aggressively against Amine, who claws his way out of danger, and eventually establishing himself in control of the match.





157 pounds:


Alec Pantaleo (Maize) dec. Layne Van Anrooy (Maize): 4-1


Pantaleo is his usual bulldoggish self against the lanky Van Anrooy, who makes him work for everything.  TD midway through the first, but fights to stay on top for the rest of the period.  They trade escapes and Pantaleo adds RT for the win.





165 pounds


Logan Massa (Maize) tech. fall. Ameen Hamdan (Blue) 20-5 5:35


Logan is his usual dominating self against true frosh Hamdan, the son of former Wolverine All-American Jehad Hamdan.





174 pounds:


Myles Amine (Blue) dec. Garrett Sutton (Maize): 5-4 OT TB2


The first match of the evening between veterans.  Sutton won the first match the day before.  Both wrestle aggressively, but in a more controlled manner, and are tied 3-3 in the third, and through the first OT.  A few TBs later, Amine squeeks out the win to tie their series 1-1.






184 pounds:


Domenic Abounader (Maize) maj. dec.Andrew Davison (Blue): 14-4


Abounader is poked early in the match against the aggressive Davison, who then chooses top, and establishes himself in firm control.  Davison remains games, but the senior is still too much for the freshman, and cruises to the win.





197 pounds:


Jackson Striggow (Maize) pin Kevin Beazley (Blue): 2:27


Beazley picks up the first TD, and after a Striggow escape, almost appears to be countering a Striggow attempt into a cradle, when he loses control and ends up on his back.


Series 1-1 at this point.







Adam Coon (Maize) pin. Zac Nemec (Blue): 4:27


Coon has no mercy on young Nemec, putting him away after several painful predicaments.









Rubber matches:




125 pounds:


Drew Mattin (Maize) inj. Default Austin Assad (Blue):  2:30


Assad tweeks his knee after giving up a first period TD. 




174 pounds:


Myles Amine (Blue) dec. Garrett Sutton (Maize): 4-2 OT2


More war of attrition between two guys who probably know each others’ moves like the backs of their hands.  Amine finally nails a double leg near the end of the second OT.




197 pounds:


Jackson Striggow (Maize) dec. Kevin Beazley 7-6


Things start similar to the first match, as Beazley picks up the first TD, and Striggow escapes.  Beazley gets another TD, but Striggow manages a reverse at the edge of the mat, with Beazley almost cradled.  He manages to squirm out of this one.


They trade TDs in the second, and the score is even by the beginning of the third.  Striggow claws out a reversal, Beazley escapes, but cannot score any more.




With so many upperclassmen and returning AAs, you’d think that things would fall in place, but the theme for the evening was that all of our younger guys made them work for everything they got!  We’ve had strong teams before, but I haven’t seen quite this much parity among the athletes before.  Hopefully it’s a sign that the program will stay strong for a while to come.


The lineup for now:


125:    Mattin

133:    Micic

141:    Profaci

149:    Ma. Amine

157:    Pantaleo

165:    Massa

174:    Mi. Amine

184:    Abounader

197:    Striggow

HWT:  Coon


Upsets at 125 and 197 nonwithstanding, I don’t think those weights are completely settled yet.  We’ll see as the tournament season kicks off how those guys will turn out.
