counsel http://esthetics-borna.com/35707-wellbutrin-uk.html WHERE TO BEGIN WITH THIS ONE. TO SAY THESE KIDS KNOW EACH OTHER IS LIKE TO SAY BROTHERS KNOW EACH OTHER. MEANING IT’S TOO OBVIOUS TO BE INTERESTING. THEY HAIL FROM THE SAME TURF, SAME SOIL. A SOIL THAT SUN•MAID HAS USED FOR DECADES TO TURN GRAPES INTO THEIR FAMOUS RAISINS. THESE TWO ARE ANYTHING BUT SUN-DRIED, OR SUNDRIES FOR THAT MATTER. THEY HAVE GROWN TO BE STARS BEFORE OUR VERY EYES, REPPING A STATE CALLED “GOLDEN” WITH THE SKILL, MOTIVATION, AND WORK ETHIC NEEDED TO EARN THOSE MEDALS MATCHING THAT STATE NICKNAME.

sort http://synctia1.com/40691-benzac-ac-gel-price.html FIGUEROA BEING A YEAR AHEAD OF CRUZ SCHOLASTICALLY, GOT HIS NAME OUT ON THE NATIONAL SCENE QUICKER. IN PARTICULAR AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. HE STEPPED INTO HIS FRESHMAN SEASON WITH ALL THE ACCOLADES BEFITTING A TOP NATIONAL WRESTLER, AND, IF POSSIBLE, EXCEEDED THEM. HE BLITZED THROUGH THE CA FIELD, SURRENDERING ONLY ONE TAKEDOWN ALL SEASON. THAT WAS TO THE RETURNING STATE CHAMPION – AND A SENIOR AT THAT. AROUND THE COUNTRY, THE SPORT PRODUCES A FEW STORY LINES EACH SEASON. BLAIR ACADEMY’S DOMINANCE IS ALWAYS ONE. AS IS THEIR RECRUITING “PROWESS.” WHICH STATE IS THE TOUGHEST IS ALWAYS A HOT TOPIC. THE POUND FOR POUND DEBATE RAGES ANNUALLY. IN CALIFORNIA, THE BIGGEST STORY HAS BEEN BUCHANAN’S STREAK OF STATE TITLES. A PROGRAM NOT TOO FAR FROM SELMA (WHERE FIGUEROA COMPETES), THE BEARS HAVE SET THEIR OWN GOLDEN STANDARD THAT IS UNDENIABLE. FIGUEROA’S SUCCESS SUPPLANTED THAT. HE WAS commence http://iespdjesusmaestro.com/52265-mestinon-cost.html THE STORY. HAS BEEN EVER SINCE REALLY.

prescription retinol cream lobby CRUZ CAME TO THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL NO STRANGER TO BIG TIME COMPETITION AND WINS IN HIS OWN RIGHT. HE, OF COURSE, WINNER OF 7 TULSA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS. YOU CAN DEBATE THE VALUE OF YOUTH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS IF YOU WANT, BUT TULSA STILL MAINTAINS A CERTAIN CACHE THAT OTHER COMPETITIONS HOPE TO CATCH UP TO. AS THEY BOTH WON THEIR WAY THROUGH THE 2018 FLONATIONALS TOURNAMENT, A SHOWDOWN IN THE FINALS SEEMED IMMINENT. AND THEN IT WAS.

best place to order clomid online ANY DISCUSSION OF THIS RIVALRY HAS TO INCLUDE THE WAY THEIR STYLES CONTRAST SO GREATLY. LIKE THE WAY I USE THE VARIOUS PHOTO EDITING OPTIONS. LIGHTS LIGHT AND DARKS DARK. THEY ARE WHAT THEY ARE. WHO WE THOUGHT. ODE TO DENNY GREEN. FIGUEROA IS A TALLER, LEANER ATHLETE AT HIS WEIGHT. CRUZ IS A STOCKIER, MORE MUSCULAR ATHLETE. THEY APPROACH MATCHES ACCORDINGLY, OWING TO THEIR STRENGTHS.

http://blackframe.io/?fbclid=IwAR2x53jRnn8WVSLXYxytHO8KdLLnVoWMvKbwlgjnv-70KYioxfuIwU362sg FIGUEROA IS QUICK, REFLEXIVE AND HAS TO BE MADE OUT OF RUBBER. HIS JOINTS END UP IN EIGHT DIRECTIONS, YET HE RARELY LOSES BALANCE OR STRENGTH IN THOSE MOMENTS. I FIND COMPARISONS TO ANIMALS EASY TO DIGEST, IN WHICH CASE FIGUEROA IS CLEARLY A FELINE.

CRUZ IS A BEAR. AT LEAST BY LIGHTWEIGHT STANDARDS. HE PUSHES FORWARD. HE ATTACKS. HE IS THE AGGRESSOR. HE’S THE IMMOVABLE OBJECT SO TO SPEAK.

AND WHEN THEY MET IN THE FLONATIONALS FINALS A YEAR AGO, THOSE CONTRASTING STYLES, THOSE ANIMAL-LIKE TENDENCIES WERE APPARENT. CRUZ WAS DIRECT. FORCING A STALL WARNING AGAINST FIGUEROA WITHIN THE FIRST 15 SECONDS. I LOST COUNT HOW MANY TIMES HE SHOT AND GOT IN ON RICHARD’S RIGHT LEG. BUT NOTHING HAPPENED. FOR TWO PERIODS. CRUZ WOULD SHOOT. FIGUEROA WOULD COUNTER. THE ONLY POINT THROUGH TWO PERIODS WAS AN ESCAPE BY FIGUEROA TO START THE 2ND.

CRUZ DID FINALLY CRACK THROUGH ON A SHOT, WHERE HE CHANGED FINISHING STRATEGY. INSTEAD OF TRYING STEP BEHIND OR POWER THROUGH FIGUEROA’S SHIN WHIZZER, HE LOCKED UP A CRADLE AND DROVE HIM TOWARD HIS BACK. WITH NO CHOICE BUT TO BAIL OUT OF THE POSITION, FIGUEROA GAVE UP THE SCORE. IT WOULD EVENTUALLY GET TO OVERTIME AT 2-2. FIGUEROA’S STRENGTH ON TOP ALLOWED HIM TO RIDE OUT ONE 30 SECOND PERIOD. CRUZ, NOT QUITE THE RIDER ON TOP OF HIS OPPONENT, CHOSE TO GO NEUTRAL GIVING FIGUEROA THE 3-2 LEAD. HE HAD 30 SECONDS TO SCORE ANOTHER TAKEDOWN. IT NEVER CAME.

TWO YOUNG GUNS FROM THE WEST COAST, FROM THE SAME CENTRAL VALLEY, BATTLED IT OUT AND CERTAINLY EARNED SOME MORE ATTENTION, FOR NOT JUST THEM, BUT THE STATE AT LARGE.

THE TABLE WAS SET FOR THE 2019 HIGH SCHOOL SEASON. WOULD THEY WRESTLE THE SAME WEIGHT? THE ANSWER TURNED OUT TO BE NO. CRUZ BUMPED UP TWO WEIGHT CLASSES (THEY MET EACH OTHER AT 106) AND TOOK 3RD AT 120. FIGUEROA ULTIMATELY STAYED AT 106 AND CAME THROUGH WITH HIS 2ND STATE TITLE. THAT END OF SEASON RESULT GAVE FIGUEROA A CONTINUED ADVANTAGE IN NATIONAL RANKINGS AND DISCUSSION. THOUGH, THE GAP BETWEEN THEM – IF THERE EVEN IS ONE – WAS NEVER VERY GREAT.

FOR THE 2019 FLONATIONALS, BOTH FIGUEROA AND CRUZ REGISTERED AT 51KG, THE REMATCH WE ALL WANTED WAS POSSIBLE. HOWEVER, FLO CHANGED THE FORMAT FROM FOLKSTYLE (COLLEGIATE RULES) TO FREESTYLE. WHAT WOULD THAT MEAN? WHERE FIGUEROA’S BIGGEST ADVANTAGE WAS HIS TOP GAME (IN FACT YOU WOULD HAVE TO SAY IT’S WHAT ULTIMATELY WON HIM THE 1ST MATCH) THAT WOULD BE NON-EXISTENT THIS YEAR. WHERE CRUZ IS ALWAYS AGGRESSIVE, THAT ALMOST ALWAYS SERVES A WRESTLER WELL IN FREESTYLE.

ANYWAY, THE BACKDROP WAS SET. THE TIME WAS NOW. AND THE MATCH WAS UNDERWAY.

 

INSIDE THE MATCH

PERIOD BY PERIOD ANALYSIS

THE WHISTLE BLEW. BAM. FIGUEROA IN ON AN ANKLE. A LITTLE FIGHT FROM CRUZ DELAYED WHAT WAS ULTIMATELY INEVITABLE. TWO POINTS FOR FIGUEROA. UNABLE TO GET ANY TURNS, THE REF BROUGHT THEM BACK TO THEIR FEET. CRUZ IN ON A LOW SINGLE AROUND FIGUEROA’S RIGHT LEG BUT THE REF STOPPED THE ACTION. BACK IN THE CENTER, CIRCLING AROUND, CRUZ IN ON ANOTHER RIGHT LEG SINGLE. HE LIFTS IT AND WITH FIGUEROA HOPPING AROUND, MANAGED A 1 POINT PUSH OUT.

WITH ABOUT 10 SECONDS LEFT, CRUZ GOT IN ON ANOTHER SHOT – THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THE STORIES OF THE WHOLE MATCH – AND COULDN’T FINISH BEFORE TIME RAN OUT.

THE PERIOD ENDED 2-1 FIGUEROA. AFTER THE FIRST SHOT OFF THE WHISTLE BY FIGUEROA, CRUZ WAS THE AGGRESSOR FOR 90 SECONDS. IT IS A TESTAMENT TO RICHARD’S ALIEN LIKE SHOT DEFENSE THAT JOEY WASN’T ABLE TO GET AT LEAST ONE TAKEDOWN, IF NOT TWO, IN THE OPENING SALVO.

THERE WOULD BE NO SHOT IMMEDIATELY OFF THIS WHISTLE. INSTEAD, THEY WOULD BE LOCKED UP PUSHING EACH OTHER BACK AND FORTH AROUND THE MAT. CRUZ WAS ABLE TO GET BEHIND FIGUEROA, WHO HAD BOTH HANDS PLANTED ON THE MAT IN A QUAD-POD POSITION. NO TAKEDOWN, BUT JOEY WALKED HIM TO THE BOUNDARY AND EARNED THE 1 POINT PUSH OUT.

THE SCORE STOOD 2-2 IN FAVOR OF FIGUEROA (HE HAD THE HIGHEST SCORING MOVE) AND CRUZ GOT IN ANOTHER SHOT. HAD ANOTHER LEG – WELL ACTUALLY IT WAS ALWAYS THE SAME LEG. RICHARD SEEMED TO ALMOST BE BAITING HIM TO TAKE HIS RIGHT LEG. AND AGAIN, HIS SHOT DEFENSE WAS INSANE. ON THE ONE HAND YOU WANT TO SEE A KID OF HIS ABILITY BE MORE OFFENSIVE. ON THE OTHER, YOU JUST HAVE TO MARVEL AT THE SHEER DIFFICULTY HE MAKES SCORING FOR HIS OPPONENT.

THE ACTION STOPPED FOR BLOOD TIME AND WITH A TAMPON HANGING OUT OF HIS NOSE, CRUZ STEPPED BACK TO THE MIDDLE. AND YOU KNEW WHAT WAS COMING. ANOTHER SHOT. ANOTHER SINGLE. THE RIGHT LEG. I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS A COACHING ADJUSTMENT, OR MAYBE A CRUZ ADJUSTMENT, BUT RATHER THAN HANG ONTO THE SINGLE AND WAIT FOR THE WIZZER, HE WENT STRAIGHT FOR THE DOUBLE LEG. UNABLE TO QUITE GET THE SECOND LEG IN HIS GRASP – FIGUEROA IN THAT FAMILIAR POSITION OF HOPPING AROUND – HE HAD THE SINGLE LEG, HANGING. FOR. DEAR. LIFE. THE CLOCK TICKED DOWN. STANDING AT THE MAT’S EDGE.

RICHARD HAD CRUZ’S LEFT ANKLE, PREVENTING HIM FROM SECURING THE CONTROL NEEDED FOR TWO POINTS. 5. 4. HANG ON AND YOU WIN. 3. GET THE TAKEDOWN YOU WIN. 2. JOEY KICKS HIS LEG FREE AND LANDS ON TOP OF RICHARD. 1. 0.

MONSTER GARAGE COACH, RUBEN VALENCIA, THREW THE CHALLENGE BRICK. EVERYONE ON THEIR SIDE BELIEVED TIME HAD EXPIRED. THEY REVIEWED THE CALL. TIME HAD NOT EXPIRED.

JOEY CRUZ IS YOUR 2019 FLONATIONALS CHAMPION!

THERE WERE HIGHER SCORING MATCHES OVER THE COURSE OF THE WEEKEND. SOME AWESOME MOVES AND POINT SCORING SEQUENCES. THOSE ARE ALWAYS ENTERTAINING AND AN ARGUMENT COULD BE MADE FOR A NUMBER OF OTHER MATCHES BEING WORTHY OF A MORE IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS. I JUST THINK THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE SAID FOR STORY LINE, HISTORY, AND EXPECTATIONS.

THE TWO FROM THE SAME SECTION OF CALIFORNIA, WHOSE FRIENDS, FAMILIES AND FANS ALL SORT OF OVERLAP TO MAKE FOR AN INTENSE RIVALRY MADE FOR THE OBVIOUS CHOICE. THE FACT THAT IT LIVED UP TO THOSE EXPECTATIONS IS JUST ICING ON THE CAKE.

NEXT UP FOR EACH WILL BE AKRON AND A SHOT AT THE WORLD TEAM. SHOULD THEY MEET FOR ROUND THREE, I’LL READY TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN!

ALSO, BE SURE TO CATCH OUR EXCLUSIVE STORY ON JOEY CRUZ. WHAT – REALLY – DRIVES HIM. HOW FAR DOES HE PLAN TO GO? COMING THIS WEEK!
