Notes -- Boylan with the nice win over R1 runner-up Johnson. A penalty point for illegal head scissor was the difference. Great bout between Haines and the tough freshman Smolinsky. It was 5-3 late, when Smolinsky tried a desperation throw to give up a takedown. He's going to be a real good one. Haines was a R1 runner-up last year and second here.

Gaccione with the early takedown, but Higginson got two reversal and two backs in the final seconds -- 4-2 after one. Gaccione escapes early in the second -- trails 4-3. Higginson converts the takedown for a 6-3 lead with 43 seconds left. Gaccione with the reversal at the buzzer -- 6-5. Higginson down to start the third. Early escape for Higginson, he leads 7-5. Gaccione tosses for the takedown with 28 seconds left to tie, but Higginson awarded an escape with 22 seconds left. Referees changed it to a reversal -- Higginson wins it, 8-7. Wow. I did think he had the reversal, so the right call there.

152 pounds

, md. 8-So. Kenny Kane (8-6), Belvidere, 10-1.

2-So. Jimmy Schuitema (13-3), Phillipsburg, d. 7-Jr. Tom Hooker (9-7), High Point, 8-2.

Notes -- Schuitema leads, 3-2, after two periods. Hooker with a late reversal, doing a nice job of hanging -- he's a pain in the neck to wrestle, and I mean that in a complimentary sense. His long body gives opponents fits. Schuitema with a takedown to start the second period, he's up 5-2.

160 pounds

8-So. Joe LaBell (8-5), Lenape Valley
, d. 1-Sr. Ryan Ward (12-1), Vernon, 7-6.

2-Sr. Tyler Cote (13-1), Hunterdon Central, p. 10-Sr. Moses Yasin (7-11), High Point, 3:25.

Notes -- Our first No. 1 goes down as LaBell knocks off Ward. Saw Ward warming up with assistant coach Tyler Branham, the former Kittatinny standout. He's a great addition to the Vernon staff. Great win for Butka, the biggest of his career.
