3:23: Video of Marquez's third place victory:
3:15: Christian Marquez will be the highest placing finisher for the HRV boys as he takes third at 120 pounds with a 55 second pin of Colton Skeen of Pendleton. Skeen got two quick takedown points, but Marquez quickly countered and bulldozed Skeen onto his back. Andrew DeHart takes fourth at 138 after losing to Austin Kleint of Lebonon 8-2. DeHart was trailing 3-2 heading into final seconds and tried a desperation throw. However Kleint rolled him over for two takedown and three near fall at the buzzer.
Nick Morgan wraps up his folkstyle career with a 1:15 pin of Emile Wolpert at 182 pounds.
1:45: Nick Morgan will wrestle for 5th-6th at 182 pounds after seeing a 3 point lead vanish late in third round against Keegan Hammond of Cleveland. Hammond, who also beat Morgan in the district finals, went on to win 6-3 in 3 overtimes. Consolation finals are coming up here in just a few minutes.
1:00: Christian Marquez and and Andrew DeHart are both on to the consolation finals. Marquez beat Orlando De La Cruz of Eagle point in a bizarre 6-5 decision. Marquez gave up two takedown points just before the buzzer, but said buzzer kept him from surrendering near fall and losing the match. HRV coach Trent Kroll received an unsportsmanlike conduct call during the match protesting a "potentially dangerous" hold call, and the Eagle Point coach was also livid at the referee for what he claimed was a missed take down and near fall earlier in the round. Both coaches sought a more senior official after the match to state their case.
De Hart handled Adrian Lyons-Lopez of South Albany fairly easily exploding for seven points in third round to win 8-2.
