OKLAHOMA CITY —
Brewer, who fell by an 8-6 decision, trailed 2-1 after the first period but grabbed a 4-3 advantage in the second period with a takedown and an escape. Brewer added two more escapes in the final two minutes, but it was not enough to catch Roth.
Against English, Maple tallied an escape with about 1:20 remaining in the second. He started the third period on top and controlled the position for most of the period before English escaped his grasp.
Regulation ended with a 1-1 tie, and in the first tiebreaker period, English added an escape to take the advantage. In the next 30-second period, Maple could not escape, dropping the bout.
“It’s nice to come away with three All-Americans,” Cody said. “I surely expected more out of them. But we’ve had some tough breaks. So to come in here, we can at least come out and hold our heads up and say we got in the top-10. We’ve done better each year the last three years. So we’re going in the direction we need to go.”
