Souderton Wrestling Tournament

Great day today at the Souderton Wrestling tournament. Michael had his best day of wrestling yet. He took 3rd place and came home with a very nice trophy that he was super excited to show. His first match he pinned the kid pretty quickly. His second match was a bit tougher against a kid he had wrestled back at the Pottsgrove Takedown Tournament back in December and at the Pottsgrove Holiday Tournament in January - he's had a very close match with this boy every time and this was definitely his best- he was winning most of the match and the kid took him down with just a few seconds left in the third period forcing an overtime. In overtime he got taken down and had to move to the consolation bracket. In the consolation semi-finals he tech-falled his opponent (a tech fall means they stop the match because you are winning by 15 points). Then in the consolation finals he pinned his opponent in the first period for a 3rd place finish. The kid who beat him in overtime ended up taking first in the tournament. All in all a great day.
