This week we have some Tuesday night action. Edmond North hosts their first home dual of the year after traveling to Ponca City last week. In the auxiliary gym for the night which is a much smaller and intimate setting, packing wrestlers and fans in. Should be some good match-ups tonight and many of these kids are likely familiar opponents as lots of these kids grew up wrestling together. Deer Creek has a busy week as they host Choctaw for their first home dual of the year before heading up to the Perry tournament November 7/8th. Big weekend ahead for Edmond North as they travel up to Ohio for the Ironman tournament. Should be a good test for the huskies as there are going to be many nationally ranked opponents.
Action gets started at 106 as Mackey (Deer Creek) vs Kinder (Edmond North). Kinder is a freshman, new to the lineup this year as both wrestlers are looking to make a name for himself on the high school scene. Not much action in the first period, Kinder able to get a takedown score 2-0. Kinder with a tough ride in the 2nd and gets a wing/bar in the 3rd period to get a pin and get things started strong for the Huskies.
Edmond North 6 Deer Creek 0
113 Goodin (Edmond North) vs Horn (Deer Creek). Goodin a returning state finalist at 106 last year, moves up in weight to start the season. Goodin follows suit and also locks up a wing with a bar-arm, runs it over and gets the first period fall.
Edmond North 12 Deer Creek 0
120 Miller (Edmond North) vs Neeley (Deer Creek). This one has potential to be a good matchup. Miller is a new face to the lineup this year and is a state champion last year for Westmoore. Can’t forget the Fargo national title that Miller got this summer! Neeley is a returning state qualifier for Deer Creek and looks to make a podium run this year. Miller starts the match looking tough on his feet with four takedowns in the first period. Miller able to put Neeley on his back in the 2nd, but Neeley toughs is out and fights off his back. Neeley tries to battle back but Miller with a couple tilts in the 3rd period and able to get the tech fall late in the match….
