VT vs NC State 2021

Recommended Posts

Starts at 133 --- will leave Latona vs Camacho as the last match!

Myers up 7-2 with 2 min of RT vs Trombley.  Has been superior on feet.  Beautiful freaking anckle pick right there. Announcer "that was so quick and so nasty ... ughhhh"  nice.  10-4 on escape.  Going for major.  Gets  TD  13-4 ..... might have gotten stalling point?  Not sure.  Gets the major  14-5 with an esc and RT.  

VT up 4-0.

About as expected. 4-0 VT so far. 
  
excited to see Hillegas. Tariq is a wildcard. He should win, but it should be fun. 
  
lots of good matches. Big Ed Scott fan. He is going to be very good, but needs some more time I think 

  
nc state is maybe the most fun team to watch

Long freaking commercial break for a wrestling match .....

141 - Hillegas vs Wilson ... Hillegas has been getting the nod consistently vs Girardi.  Hillegas likes to do a shrug to putting a leg in while standing.  Trying to get a merkel.  Wasn't working last week, didn't work vs Wilson.  Shifts to scramble.  Wilson TD.  2-0 Wilson.  On restart, HIllegas to feet and out.   2-1.

Wilson shot and in deep.  Hilegas drapped.  Time runs out.  2-1 Wilson end of first.

2nd pd - Hillegas down.  To feet.  Back down.  Up and OOB.  Strong tight waist, riding.  Hillegas works to base, Wilson chops and puts him flat.  Riding parallel.  No attempt at turn.  and ... Stalling on on Wilson.  Pat Pop asking what's up.  Ref says all he had was tight waist and not coming off hips.  Warning against Pop --- for 'Questioning.'  Cool that they let us hear the ref and coach talk.

Restart and H is up and OOB.  30 sec to go.  So close to a Peterson by Hillegas.  Wow.  Nearly had it.  So close.  Wilson manages not to fall back.  No H rotates back down ... and no lose of control by Wilson.  Rides out 2nd period.

3rd period Wilson picks Neutral!!  Wow, that's surprising respect for the true freshman.  Hillegas goes in and they slide across mat to OOB. ... well, H is keeping foot in.  Using a TON of energy trying to bring Wilson back.  It doesn't work.  I think that was a mistake.Also killed a lot of clock.

1 min - H goes in and Wilson gets behind.  4-1 Wilson.  Will have RT point.  Wilson wins 5-1.

Any reason why Korbin Myers doesn’t get the tanner hall/ Cassar/ ashnault treatment? Pretty sure he’s a 24 yr old 7th year senior...I think that type of age difference and maturity shows and matters a lot more at a lower weight compared to the heavier guys.

glad to see he’s healthy and looking sharp this year but curious as to why no one points out he’s grant Leeths age

Another super long commercial break.  Wow.  ACC Network really milking this.  Or is this normal?  

141 Andonian (VT) vs Scott (NC State) -- Andonia does a spin move off a tie up and tries to get a leg but Scott not phased.  No go.  Andonia reaches over for a lock around body ... but nothing happens with it.  Tires fore double over and inside trip , nope, then to an outside trip then takes Scott right to back!! Scott bellies down and Andonian on top ... But Scott keeps going ... scrambles really well and gets the reversal!   2-2.  Wow.  Kudos to both.  Scott with leg in and they are rolling around and OOB.  On restart Andonian out.  3-2.

2nd, Scott down .. quick gets a leg and gets a reversal.  Wow!!  A up and Scott lifts, attempt at standing granby .. nope.  Scott rides ... OOB.  Impressive.  A up on restart.  Down, then up.  And gets the escape.  4-4.  Stalemate.  I think Andonian is a bit shocked.  He was on the hunt early in the first.  Now more respect being shown.  40 sec to go.  Scott goes in, backs out.  Andonian throw and scramble!  Gets behind for 2 right near end of period.  Wow.  Fun match.  6-4 going into third.

3rd - A down.  SCott does have RT now.  Andonian nearly gets reversal but escape instead.  7-4.  Andonian in gets a body lock/bear hug to an inside trip and puts Scott to back!  Scott Bellies down.  No count.  9-4 Andonian.  RT is now down.  Love watching Andonian with his upper body stuff.  Scott escape.  

Andonian wins 9-5.

Hokies up 7-3.

Hayden Hidlay vs Brady (VT) - Hidlay hunting, Brady generally on defense.  Hayden with some soft shots with arm stretched forward but not really committing.   It works.  Stalling on Brady.  Fair.  A bit surprised Hidlay couldn't impose more of his will in 1st period.  0-0.

2nd period.  Brady riding but Hidlay working on hand control.  Sitting out .. gets the hand .. and up and out.  20 sec in.  Potentially dangerous -  1 pt for Hidlay -- announcer says shot to face.  Brady goes but reshot Hidlay.  Stall call thrown in and TD ... with all that 4-0 Hidlay.   Brady gets escape.  Another illegal hold for hands to face.  I missed it.  5-1 Hidlay.

3rd period.  Brady down.  Gets out.  5-2.  Brady in on leg!  Hidlay limp legs but Brady holds it.  Hidlay pressure on head ... then whips around other way and gets to Brady's leg and gets around for the 2.  Nice job Hidlay.  But nice shot Brady.  Was close.  Escape Brady, then TD Hidlay.  9-3 .. let's him up for esc.  9-4.  Can't get TD.  Hidlay wins.

7-6 team score.

I expected more from Hidlay to be honest.

M. Lewis (VT) vs T. Bullard.  Would love to see Mekhi feel the need to go for bonus.

Well, not so far.  0-0 end of first.

2nd period Lewis up and out.  1-0.  Stall point for Lewis and gets in and works for a nice TD.  4-0.  Restart.  Bullard flat.  4-0 going to 3rd.

3rd period.  Lewis riding.  Has 1 min+ of RT now.  Restart, Bullard tries but Lewis has him flat.  No interest in bonus though.  40 sec to go.  Restart, Lewis reaches for cradle.  No go.  20 sec.  Bullard flat.  Mekhi wins 5-0.

VT up 10-6.

Bullard (NCSt) vs Howard (VT).  Bullard in.  Gets it.  2-0.  Bullard with tough ride.  Leg figure foured now.  Trying a turn.  has a foot hooked, trying a bow, no.  Howard fights ... OOB.  Missed some ...

3-1 Bullard in 2nd.  Howard in on leg but not in good spot as Bullard gets around.  5-1 Bullard.  Figure four on leg again.  Now released.  Howard flat.  Bullard staying parallel waiting for a base.  Base built.  Up a bit now down flat.  Staying flat.  Stalling soon?  Yup.  RT is locked now for Bullard.  

3rd pd.  Blood on Bullard?  Hah, he was hitting hard cross faces ... expected Howard would be the one bleeding.

3rd on feet.  Bullard in, big sprawl.  No.  Bullard low single, should get this.  Does. 7-1.  Let's him go.  7-2, has RT.  Howard takes shot but never locks hands.  BAcks out.  Bullard goes but backs out.  Howard has leg up.  Bullard rolls ..gets leg ... gets the TD.  Then hangs on leg for 5, stall.  10-2 with RT.  Can Howard get out?  16 sec on restart.  Nope!  Major decision!

10-10 team score!!

184!!! Big match!!!

T. Hidlay vs Bolen (VT) - After seeing Trent at the freestyle RTC competition I'm a fan.  He was on fire. Had an appendectomy though .. hmmm.

Bolen has front headlock.  Hidlay backs out.  Ref yelling center. OOB. No stall called?  BS.  Not very dynamic on restart.  OK, some movement.  Bolen fakes.  Locked up .. nada.

2nd period.  Bolen out in 5 seconds.  1-0.  Bolen kinda goes but Hidlay circles away.  Bolen moving forward.  Locked up.  Bolen holding center now.  Hidlay bbacking up.  OOB.  That is bull****. that is stalling.  Refs need to grow a pair on this OOB stuff.  Now Hidlay holding center.  Bolen back to edge.  Circles around.  H backing.  Bolen nearly gets a TD as they go OOB.  I think he had it.  But not awarded.  Hidlay saved by OOB.  

H down.  H up, Bolen grabs leg high, lifts, back down.  OOB.  only 15 sec passed.  They are looking at a locked hands review.  NC State threw brick.  OK, Bolen had hands locked while on feet and as they came down hands still locked for a just a moment before he releases.  Ruling is no locked hands.  

To feet and a lift, and a lift ... and down.  32 sec in.  OOB.  H up, Hidlay lifts leg.  Bolen staying in control.  OOB.  RT up to 46 sec.  T up and trying to get hands.  big lift.  has RT.  now away.  1:04 of RT.  45 sec to go.  

25 sec.  Wow, on edge.  Hidlay nearly a TD but OOB as toe comes out and Bolen off mat.  So close.  No challenge as brick is lost.  

Bolen wins 2-1 with RT!!!
