cialis kaufen paypal Prior to the season’s start, Bartlett and Van Ness both competed at Super 32. Van Ness was the champion at 126, and sort of announced his arrival to the nation. He was thought to be in a battle, and maybe even the odd one out, for a spot on Blair’s starting roster this season. His performance in North Carolina changed all that. Barlett took 3rd place there, but at 132, so they didn’t face each other or any of the same kids. Bartlett also took 2nd at Flonationals while Van Ness didn’t compete there.

atarax uk formulate For Bartlett, the season got off to a bit of a slow start by his standards. He came into Walsh Ironman ranked 3rd nationally, while Van Ness was just around the top 10. Ultimately, it would be Van Ness with a win over #1 Jordan Decatur and ultimately capturing that title. Bartlett would find himself in the consolations earlier than expected and battling for 5th. They didn’t meet there. The next big competition where both schools participated was Beast Of The East. And this is where the two would have their first of three matches. This particular weekend was right at the height of Van Ness’s momentum, and he got the better of the Wyo Sem junior 5-1. Van Ness would go on to win this one as well, while Bartlett took 5th.

This was billed as one of the top individual matches to watch, not just in the dual but also nationally with Van Ness carrying a #1 ranking and Bartlett at #5. Only the much anticipated bout didn’t quite live up to the expectations. Bartlett pinned Van Ness in like 20 seconds. While that makes for excitement in its own right, fans were essentially robbed of what they thought would be a hotly contested 3 period slug fest.

himalaya lukol price measure Well, thanks to both teams competing at Prep Nationals, a 3rd – the rubber match – battle between them would be set up. In the finals. How would this go? Like the first, in favor of Van Ness? Like the rematch, a blur of a domination by Bartlett? Something else? Something else indeed.

INSIDE THE MATCH

PERIOD BY PERIOD ANALYSIS

xenical orlistat buy online From the start of this one, it was obvious that Bartlett came to party. He pushed the action against Van Ness, who has been noted for his pace and pressure from his feet. The first score came on a re-shot by Bartlett where he got the right leg of Van Ness and drove him forward with control. The scoring sequence was a bit of foreshadowing as it showed the way Bartlett would attack throughout the six minutes.

It seems that Bartlett and his coaches must have seen something on film that showed a weakness in Van Ness’s neutral defense, especially his right leg. Bartlett’s best score came on a textbook single leg where he set it up with a head tap and he was gone.

The period ended with the score 8-4 Beau, as he had no interest in spending time on the mat and let Van Ness up after every take down. With about 20 seconds left, Van Ness got off his lone shot attempt in on a leg, but nothing doing as Bartlett fended it off.

great post to read The 2nd period started with Van Ness underneath and, again owing to Bartlett’s lack of interest in wrestling on the mat, he was out in about 3 seconds. That brought the score to within three. At that point, Van Ness took, what appeared to be, a half-hearted double-leg shot that Bartlett turned into a cradle that he used to secure two for the take down and was dangerously close to another win by fall over his Blair foe.

However, to the credit of Van Ness, he kept himself off his back and only gave up a 1 count, for zero near fall points. A lot of excitement for what amounted to 2 points. In fact, Van Ness managed a reversal and 2 points of his own. Bringing the score to 10-7.

Van Ness cut Bartlett, giving up the easy escape. The period would end with that being the final score, 11-7.

With the choice, Bartlett started the 3rd period down and Van Ness let him go with the optional start. A bit of hand fighting from their feet, and Van Ness had his best shot of the evening. A low single in on Bartlett’s right ankle that was really indefensible. Another cut, giving Bartlett the escape point and they were back on their feet. From here, Bartlett got himself another take down off his own shot defense and he let Van Ness up about as quickly as he took him down.

With the score 15-10 and 1 minute left, a shot attempt by Van Ness was blocked by a whizzer from Bartlett. However, it looked like Van Ness had a little more energy for this exchange and managed to get behind Beau while his hands were on the mat, 2 points.

Van Ness, feeling the urgency down by 4, got off another great shot. Almost identical to the single legs Bartlett was hitting in the 1st period. It looked for all the world like he would be able to score and pull within 2. Bartlett managed to get his leg free and actually turn it into 2 for himself. After letting Van Ness up again, the score now 18-13, 10 seconds remained on the clock.

The referee blew the whistle to restart the action and Van Ness charged forward. Needing a huge 5 point move to send it into OT, he locked up a right overhook and dropped his right foot behind and attempted the lat drop to end all lat drops. Only Bartlett felt it and prepared his momentum for it and as they both sort of stopped on their heads, it was Bartlett that ultimately came down with control and 2 final points.

I’m sure there are plenty of matches that folks could nominate as the best of the season. The reason I chose this one myself is that it had the build up of two national top 5 wrestlers, from the top 2 programs, in a 3rd and final match where they split the first 2. The stakes – a national title – couldn’t have been higher nor the moment bigger. Often in these settings you see wrestlers tight. They don’t want to give up the score and it goes without much action. This was the opposite. They pushed each other, attacked each other and went out there looking to put on a show. In fact, Seminary head coach, Scott Green, called it, “one of best performances I’ve been in the corner for Beau.”

If you have a FLO account I suggest you watch it. If you don’t, ask someone who does. This is sort of rivalry fans of the sport [ought to] live for. While it’s disappointing that I missed it live, being at Bakersfield for the CA state finals, I’m glad I went back and caught the tournament, this match in particular.
