Wasn't it pretty much stated that he would be out for just this weekends meets and not for an extended period of time? I think flo got everyone riled up with the headline of him being suspended indefinitely and any other article I've seen, hasn't really mentioned it quite the same way.

Yes, leave it to Flo - because inquiring minds want to know... :roll:

Penn State Wrestlers Open Season with 34-8 win at Rider

 

BOUT-BY-BOUT:

 

125: Two-time NCAA finalist Nico Megaludis (Murrysville, Pa.), ranked No. 3 nationally at 125, took on Rider's Robert Deutsch, ranked No. 17, in one of the dual's marquee match-ups. The duo battled through a scoreless start as the first two minutes passed without a completed shot. Megaludis tried to connect on a low single with :35 left but Deutsch was able to fight off the move and the bout was scoreless after one period. Megaludis chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to a 1-0 lead. After letting Deutsch set the tempo early, Megaludis got in on a high single and turned it into a takedown and a 3-0 lead at the :30 mark of the second period. A short ride out allowed the Lion junior to carry a 3-0 lead into the final stanza. Deutsch chose down to start the third, but the Lion All-American was strong on top, maintaining control long enough to build up a minute-plus in riding time. Megaludis forced Deutsch into giving up a stall point and led 4-0 at the :45 mark. With the riding time point clinched, Megaludis finished off the ride and posted the strong 5-0 win.

 

133: Sophomore Jordan Conaway (Abbottstown, Pa.) took on Rider's Chuck Zeisloft at 133. Conaway a '13 National Qualifier, fought off an early Zeisloft shot to keep the bout scoreless halfway through the opening stanza. The Nittany Lion sophomore then began to set the tempo, forcing the Bronc wrestler to the outside circle. Conaway chose down after a scoreless first period and quickly escaped to a 1-0 lead. Conaway continued to be the aggressor with Zeisloft backing away throughout the second period. Conaway connected on a low single and worked his way to a takedown at the :20 mark and, after a ride out, led 3-0 after two periods. Zeisloft took down to start the third period and escaped to a 3-1 Conaway lead. Conaway's constant pressure led to a second takedown, this one at the 1:10 mark, giving the Lion a 5-2 lead after cutting the Bronc loose. Conaway tacked on a third takedown and cut and led 7-3 at the :40 mark. The Lion added two more takedowns, with the last coming at the :12 mark. The short ride out gave Conaway a 12-4 major with the 1:02 riding time point.

 

141: True freshman Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.), sporting a 5-0 mark at 141, met Rider's Paul Kirchner. The Nittany Lion rookie picked up his first dual meet takedown as a Penn Stater at the 1:28 mark of the first period and then cut Kirchner loose to lead 2-1 early. The Lion freshman gained control of Kirchner's shoulders and worked his way around to a second takedown and a 4-1 lead with :45 on the clock. Retherford then rode Kirchner out to lead 4-1 with 1:04 in time after one period. Retherford chose down to start the second period and worked his way to an escape with 1:21 on the clock to lead 5-1. Retherford set the tempo consistently and his constant pressure led to a stall warning on Kirchner. Retherford then used a low single to force Kirchner down to the mat, adding another takedown to lead 7-1 after two periods. Kirchner chose down to start the third period and Retherford made him pay for the decision. The Nittany Lion rookie was dominating on top, not giving the Bronc any space and building up a 1:58 time edge before cutting him loose. He quickly tacked on two more takedowns in less than :20 and, with 2:32 in riding time, rolled to the 12-3 major.

 

149: Senior James English (York, Pa.) took on Rider's Curt Delia at 149. Delia came out fast, gaining control of English's ankle to notch Rider's first takedown. English quickly escaped to a 2-1 deficit and action resumed in the center circle. English used a low single to gain control of Delia's left leg and steadily worked his way to a takedown and a 3-2 lead at the :32 mark of the opening period. Delia escaped to tie the bout at the :10 mark. English chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to a 4-3 lead. The remainder of the second period was scoreless thanks to English fighting off a late Delia shot. Delia, trailing 4-3, chose down to start the third period and escaped to a 4-4 tie. With the bout deadlocked, the duo traded late shots with no one connecting and the bout went to sudden victory. Delia got in on a single and English countered, forcing a scramble that nearly ate up the extra time. But Delia's work paid off with a takedown and a 6-4 win for the Bronc, cutting Penn State's lead to 11-3. Junior Andrew Alton (Mill Hall, Pa.), ranked No. 8, is still recovering from off-season surgery.

 

157: Senior James Vollrath (Richboro, Pa.) took to the mat against Bronc Wayne Stinson at 157. Vollrath wasted no time taking the lead, getting an early takedown to lead 2-1 after a Stinson escape. The Lion senior then fought off a solid Stinson shot and action returned to the center circle with the Nittany Lion still on top by one. Vollrath worked his way to a second takedown late to lead 4-1 after one period. Stinson chose down to start the second period and escaped to a 4-2 deficit, but Vollrath answered with another strong takedown and led 6-2 at the 1:10 mark. Vollrath put together a very strong ride and led 6-2 with 2:20 in riding time after a ride out. Vollrath chose down to start the third period and quickly escaped to a 7-2 lead. A solid high single led to another takedown and a 9-2 lead with :40 on the clock. With the riding time point assured, Vollrath simply rode Stinson out and rolled to the 10-2 major decision, giving Penn State a 15-3 lead at halftime. Junior Dylan Alton (Mill Hall, Pa.), ranked No. 6, is still recovering from off-season surgery.

 

165: No. 1 David Taylor (St. Paris, Ohio) met Riders' Ramon Santiago, ranked No. 13, in an anticipated match-up at 165. Taylor, a three-time All-American, got in on a shot off an early restart and steadily worked his way into a scramble. Taylor turned the scramble into a takedown and two back points for an early 4-0 lead. Taylor cut Santiago loose and quickly took the ranked Bronc down again, nearly pinning him in the process. But Santiago was able to roll through the move without giving up back points and the Lion senior led 6-1 with over 1:00 riding time after the opening period. Taylor chose top to start the second period and immediately began looking for the chance to turn Santiago. After a scramble out of bounds, Santiago asked for injury time. Taylor then cut Santiago loose after a reset and Taylor took the Bronc down quickly to lead 8-2 at the :53 mark. He cut Santiago loose and then quickly took him down a fifth time. This time the Lion senior turned the Bronc to his back to pick up the pin at the 4:27 mark. The fall was Taylor's fifth in six matches this year.

 

174: Junior All-American Matt Brown (West Valley City, Utah), ranked No. 3 at 174, met Rider's Conor Brennan. The duo battled evenly through the first minute of the opening period and then Brown exploded on the Bronc, using high control to force Brennan to the mat and quickly planting his shoulders for the fall at the 1:14 mark. The pin, Penn State's second straight, put Penn State up 27-3.

 

184: Sophomore James Frascella (Carmel, Ind.) made his Penn State dual meet debut against Rider's Clint Morrison at 184. The duo battled evenly for the opening period with neither wrestler finding an opening to score. With the bout scoreless, Frascella chose down to start the second period and escaped to a 1-0 lead. But Morrison answered with the bout's first takedown, taking a 2-1 lead and then turning Frascella for three back points and a 5-1 lead. Morrison was strong on top, maintaining control for the rest of the period and tacking on another three point near fall to lead 8-1 after two. Morrison chose down to start the final stanza and escaped to a 9-1 lead with 1:25 in riding time. The Bronc tacked on another takedown to up his lead to 11-1. He then rolled Frascella over for three more back points and then added a final takedown to post the 17-2 tech fall at the 7:00 mark (with 2:35 in riding time). No. 1 Ed Ruth (Harrisburg, Pa.) did wrestle in the match for violation of team rules.

 

197: Sophomore Morgan McIntosh (Santa Ana, Calif.), ranked No. 4 at 197, met Rider junior Donald McNeil. McIntosh, wrestling in his first Nittany Lion dual in over a year after last season's red-shirt, gained control of McNeil's ankle and pulled the Bronc back onto the mat for a takedown and a 2-0 lead at the 1:11 mark. McIntosh then dominated action from the top, controlling the Bronc for the final 1:12 to lead 2-0 after one. The Lion sophomore chose down to start the second period and quickly took McNeil down to lead 5-0 midway through the second period. McIntosh cut McNeil loose at the :45 mark and immediately got in on a single. McNeil was able to force a stalemate and the Lion sophomore led 5-0 with 2:03 in riding time heading into the final period. McNeil chose down to start the third period and McIntosh cut him loose, looking for bonus points. The Lion gained control of McNeil's left ankle but the Bronc was once again able to force a stalemate. McIntosh used a head outside single and picked up another late takedown to roll to the 8-2 win with 2:13 in time.

 

285: Penn State junior Jimmy Lawson (Tom's River, N.J.), ranked No. 11 at 285, battled Riders' Greg Velasco. Lawson wasted no time in taking the lead. The New Jersey native gained control of Velasco's shoulders and tripped him to the mat for an early takedown and a 2-0 lead. Lawson controlled the action from the top, looking for a chance to turn Velasco for back points. A strong ride led to over 2:00 in riding time as Lawson rode the Bronc out for a 2-0 lead with 2:47 in riding time after one period. Lawson chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to a 3-0 lead. He then scrambled his way to a second takedown and a 5-0 lead late in the period and, with a short ride out, led 5-0 heading into the final period. Velasco chose down to start the final period but Lawson was too much for the Bronc. The Lion junior clinched the riding time point and then cut Velasco loose at the :50 mark. Lawson took Velasco down and cut him with :20 left, needing one more takedown for a major. A quick Lawson counter at the end of the bout, to go along with 4:16 riding time, gave Lawson the strong 10-2 major.

Watched the match today on tv. My quick brief take.

-Nico wore his guy out and did okay. Nothing spectacular. I can not wait to see him wrestle Cruz tomorrow.

-JC started slow and broke his guy eventually. He started to look meaner n tougher as the match went on. To me he looked a bit thicker than last year.

-Zain is going to be a stud, maybe not this year, but he will be. I like the way he attacks. I also can not wait for him and Gardner tomorrow. I got Laike in a close one.

-English was very disappointing. He looked lost out there. Great effort on the Rider wrestler, he deserved that win. I can NOT wait until Alton is back, my all time favorite HS wrestler! I hope he is healthy and wins the title this year.

-Vollrath looked decent in a solid win.

-Taylor looked good. He is so much fun to watch.

-Matt Brown was NASTY. Hahaha. I like the way Brown is physical.

-I am not trying to be mean, but Frascella looked horrible. Maybe that's why Ruth was drinking? To give his training partner James a chance to actually be competitive while they drill at practice. Just a bad joke. I hope this weight does not come back to haunt them at Lehigh tomorrow in the team score.

-McIntosh looked solid. What I did not like about him though was the Rider wrestler was really snapping him out of position many times. I saw Morgan off balance a few times but he could not capitalize on them.

-Lawson looked pretty good. He controlled the whole match. The Rider heavyweight made many foolish mistakes that gave Lawson the major.

-Nico vs. Deutch. The Rider wrestler basically stalled half this match away, and the other half wrestled to not get taken down.

 

-Conoway scored 9 points in the third period to get the major.

 

-Zain dominated his guy at 141. I don't see Gardner beating him, but should be a good match. Did I mention that I think he beats Gardner? Ha.

 

- Delia beat English to the punch in OT. He took the shot and while they called the TD sorta early, Delia was the aggressor and better wrestler today.

 

-Vollrath controlled his man.

 

-Taylor had a big lead after a quick takedown and turn for back points, then some added ankle picks and releases. The pin came in the 2nd period.

 

-Matt Brown with first period pin. About a minute and a half.

 

Frascella was overmatched.

 

-McIntosh - that is a good wrestler that Rider had at 197. Morgan controlled that match all the way.

 

-Lawson needed to score a couple of take downs late, which he did

I have watched Delia and he wrestles tough. Brennan, i thought, was a 157lbr. Would've liked to see Resnick in at 174 but no doubt, PSU wins that bout also. If Ruth had been in lineup, would've been a matchup of Harrisburg area wrestlers. Wouldn't have been good for Morrison but seems like he wrestled well in this match.

The Nittany Lion rookie was dominating on top, not giving the Bronc any space and building up a 1:58 time edge before cutting him loose.

 

------------------

 

If you are Dominating on top - you turn and pin the guy. At the very least you get a bunch of back points. Just riding is not dominating, it is stalling.

Why is that "Good News" Picker???

 

Good news for PSU fans was I saw Ed Ruth sitting with the team.

 

The good news is Ruth can do what he wants and Cael will suspend him from duals that they will win without him

Penn State needs Ruth or they have no chance of beating teams like Iowa, OSU or Minnesota. Heck, Lehigh could cause some problems today if they win some toss-up matches early. The disappointing thing about Frascella isn't that he lost; it's that he lacked intensity and eventually gassed giving up bonus to a guy not ranked in the top 20. Ed is probably looking at a 30 day suspension so I guess we're fortunate this happened early in the season.

Was at the match and saw the ride. You could not be more off base. A dominating and painful ride working for a turn constantly against a very game opponent (has a win over Small). Nowhere near close to stalling at ANY time on top. Was close to a turn multiple times and probably gets it eventually, but released to secure the major.

 

I was holding back a bit on Retherford as he is just a true freshman, but after seeing him in person yesterday I'm not holding back any more. Very, very impressive - not just results, but how he wrestles, carries himself, etc. Looks right at home as one of the studs in that lineup which is saying something.

 

I thought that today Gardner would be a tough match for him as Gardner has been wrestling very well to start the season. I saw another poster pick Gardner in a close match. I've changed my tune - Retherford wins this comfortably. Retherford is the real deal. Would like to see him on bottom against an elite rider - probably will dictate how far he can go in March.

My sentiments exactly. Recall all the hype when Andrew Alton went won 22-2, two one-point losses to Russell, through the VA Duals with 15 falls (11 in the 1st period). The scouting report then got out that he couldn't get out off bottom, which eventually cost him the remainder of the season, with his going 8-8 down the stretch.

 

Being an old East-Central Section (District IV) guy myself, I'm high on Retherford. I'm sure he'll be okay coming off the bottom.

Lol. i see more people are struggling with the term 'indefinitely'.

 

it's not sensationalism, it's 100% accurate, by definition

oh, pahleeeeze

maybe sensationalism is too strong a word though...how about kings of the misleading headline?

it's what you guys do...it's OK, just own it.

What is there a dispute about? No time line was given for Ruth's return, so for now he is suspended indefinitely. He could wrestle at 3pm, but for now his return has no defined timeline.

Are fans becoming like Fox News looking for any excuse to bitch and complain?
