In the third place match the Mustangs would battle the number 3 seeded Osage team. Osage jumped out to a big lead, but Indee would rally late to pull it to within 30-22 with the Mustangs two #1 ranked boys coming up in

But this would not be easy for O’Brien as he would face the #2 ranked wrestler, Averee Abben. O’Brien jumped out to a 4-1 lead, but Abben tied it up at 4. O’Brien would get a takedown with about 30 seconds left and Abben would get to his feet for an escape with five seconds left as they both road out of bounds. Five seconds left and all O’Brien had to do was stay away from Abben, which was his plan and as the whistle blew, O’Brien ran from Abben and tried to stay away from him. Abben cornered O’Brien and shot in for the takedown, grabbing both legs and wrestling him to the ground. According to the referee, all this happened within 5 seconds and Abben would win 8-7.

I am trying so hard to keep my opinion out of my articles now-a-days, but there is no way that all this happened in 5 seconds. I’d have to see the replay. These two exceptional wrestlers will hopefully meet up again on Saturday night. Independence would fall to Osage by the score of 39-28.
