Wait......why did Morgan wrestle at SCC's?
Just to inform the readers Bolton is so small if you blink you will miss it. Located in northeast part of state bordered by Manchester and Vernon. Kaleb CARLSON is a sophomore team of 1 who has been wrestling since 6 yrs old. Placed third in states at middle school division 3 years ago in a very competitive weight class. Want to acknowledge coaches of nccc for rewarding a wrestler from a team of one and the challenges that entails with O.W.
106 - Rapuano - Dominant.
113 - Garcia Dominant, but so many good young wrestlers here. Loria, Barlage, and Zipperstein, Deep weight class.
120 - Divito over Davern 8-5, good match Davern hurt his knee end of 2nd.
126 - Manganiello, wow man this kid is explosive. Very impressive.
132 - Barber, Divito, Larose, and Bradley. Crazy deep. Bradley is amazing. All 4 are really good.
138 - Divito looked good after being out a few weeks. Moynihan was dominant.
145 - Lunt is really really good. Mascola looked really good as well. Edmondson is very good as well. Tough weight.
152 - McCourt was dominant.
160 - Tsiranides was dominant
170 - Good weight class. Sousa looked great, Top 4 all looked strong.
182 - won by Olser, did not seem like a very deep weight.
195 - Bannon is a monster. Very tough weight. Roa seemed hurt and did not place. McHenry looked good but Bannon is just so strong.
220 - Weiner looked good. He controls his matches very well.
285 - Salami win was very exciting. He seems like a really nice kid.
Three team race. Xavier obviously pretty dominant. Foran is such a great program, they seem like a really tight group with great coaches. East Haven is right on the door step. Always a good tourney.
I think Jonathan Davila might be overlooked, he broke two of his fingers in his semis match and didn’t look normal in his finals match. If he was healthy, I think we would have a different FCIAC Champ at 170. Also, I am very excited to watch the potential 160lb LL Finals between Lazar and Tsiranides.
132- Miller over Renfree 6-0 @ ECC’s. 2 points scored against him in the tourney And he gave those away. Impressive.
SWC was crazy from a team perspective came down to the last match and Newtown Heavy delivered. Barlow had some tough breaks losing their 120 Alvarez to injury and Klein Wassink losing in the semis on a last second take-down by Newtwon kid Maurouth. Great by effort by both teams. Coniglio-Chin final was exciting. First time I have seen Coniglio he should do some damage at Class L. Could have been a stall call in that one at the end but wasn't made. Speaking of stall calls, never seen anything like the call in Tolland Matos v. Accousti match, awful call. To his credit Tolland Matos didn't let it phase him and got the takedown for the deserved win in OT. Licastri dominated as expected, he will be hard to beat. Linder-Brault final at 106 also was a good one.
Who is soares at 120 ? And what happened to Ashton capichiano?
Yeah Liam lost to Pena in a wrestle off.
Don‘t know all the details on the Harrington match just know he was extremely happy and fired up trying to get the crowd going after it. I’m sure someone else can fill the details in .
Naji Powell- pinned morriseete in a minute of the first period.
Flo shows the score whem the person was pinned. I thought the same thing until I saw the time
Danny Charron was the 106lb. ECC Champion
Brothers Mike and David finished 2nd
What happened to Dan Charon At ECC?
Odell and Longo have been very close matches for the last two years. I believe they’ve been in overtime 3-4 times in the last year alone. Tough match up as they were practice partners for years. They should see eachother again next weekend and I bet it will be another very close match. Nobody knows Mikey better than Kai who both enjoy long walks on the beach together apparently lol.
Agoev over Sibbett was probably the most exciting match I’ve seen all year. There were some very impressive trips to say the least.
Travis Longo pinned and Teched his way through and looked very technical in the finals Over Dewinter 17-2. Others who looked good in that bracket were Pena of Danbury and Mannino of Wilton.
Jack Ryan and Tyler Johnson was a close match with one call that wasn‘t called that could have sent it into OT.
Tyler Johnson was pretty dominant over Sam White in the Semis
Ben Smart looked fantastic against Eibert and RJ but we all know how hard that match in the finals was for Ben. RJ is just ......well RJ haha.
Fields and Parrot was going well until Kyles decided he didn’t want to wrestle anymore I guess and turned on that Hulk like strength of his to end the match Lol.
Matt Ryan and Justin Mastroianni was a great match of strength and technique against smooth and technical abilities. Definetly a fun match to watch!
Leblanc was very dominant up to the finals winning a great match over Shagnessy, but had a very tough match up with Sung who needs no build up of how good he is Haha.
Zuckerman had some very close matches up until the finals . It seems he has Mazur’s number. Mazur is a talented and strong wrestler I just think those styles don’t mesh well.
Agoev put on a absolute show that was worth the price of admission alone!
Palmierri finally avenged his 4 losses to Nanai taking him down in a very exciting match.
Harrington looked tough
thats about it for FCIAC. It was a fun two days of good wrestling.
