Finishes

Recommended Posts

After just watching some past videos, what's some of the best finishes you've seen in a match. My vote right now would either have to be Nasko' "chin whip" or one even nastier has to be Lance Ellis lat drop.

Adam Doherty hip toss. I believe it was in semi's at state. Not sure of the year

Was actually the 1999 State Finals match against Scott Maddox. He had a overhook and trapped the other arm and just hipped into him with about 7 seconds to go. Was just all strength and willpower. Just had in his head he was not gonna lose.

I believe you're correct. I'm old and forgetful now. Thank you

Jared McKinleys (Perry) headlock in the 2012 state finals against Josh Kieffer (roncalli) I'm not a headlock guy but that was one of the meanest headlocks I've ever seen. 

That was brutal...Billy Naegle pinned #1 ranked Dosher of EMD at state and was known for his headlock..Jayson Madden of New Castle in the 90s was known for hitting headlocks frm anywhere..He placed 4th and he pinned the Great Dan Pleak with it... hit him with a right handed headlock only to have Dan escape to be hit with the left handed headlock in which he didn't escape.

How about MD's Alex Johnson with a late headlock to beat Jake Sinkovics on Friday night in the 2014 Finals?  If I recall correctly, Johnson was down before catching Jake in a headlock and getting the fall with about :10 left in the match for a #4 over #1 upset.

Would you put that match on “To many Takedowns Topic” and not to do that ? 

Pretty sure Jake was putting on a Takedown clinic before that Headlock came out of no where .

In my head his lead was pretty wide.  You may be right.  I don't recall the specific details.

My favorite finish, but I'm bios........

The Warsaw wrestler rallied in the final seconds to earn a thrilling victory in the IHSAA State Finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Hatch, a WCHS freshman, posted an incredible come from behind 13-12 win by decision over Lakeland senior Lukas Long in first-round action in the 106-pound weight class.

Hatch, who rallied from being down 7-1, avenged a loss to Lukas earlier this season to move into quarterfinal action Saturday morning.

“It was just fantastic,” said Warsaw coach Justin Smith about the win in a phone interview Friday night. “It seemed like the whole arena was watching this match. I know this one will stick in my mind forever.”

Hatch trailed 9-3 entering the third and final period. He got three takedowns to pull within 12-10 late in the match before getting the final three points in the final few seconds on a stalling call on Long and a final takedown just before the match concluded for the 13-12 victory.

“Everyone, including us knew the score and that Kyle had won 13-12,” recounted Smith. “But, Kyle thought at first it was 12-12 and he went back to the center ready for overtime. He then found out he had won and was jumping up and down and screaming like the rest of us.”

He shot 4 sweeps back and forth, back and forth till he chopped the tree down. The crowd went wild. One of the few matches I don't have on tape, because ISHAA was supposed to tape it and they didn't. The company that did it for them no longer exist and I haven't been able to find a copy.

How about the heavyweight 3rd place match last year? Less then 15 seconds (give or take) left, Samuels cuts Clark, now trailing by 1, then takes him down at the buzzer.

That was the best. Crowd went nuts. The wrestlers appreciated the competition. A rare State finals moment for sure.

I would probably never talk to that coach that didn't record that match.

Absolutely, amazing match by the 2 big fellas. Not sure how anyone could've watched this match sitting down.

I believe he had to MFF at semi-State the following year in the semis.

Yep, MFF in the semis against Elliot Molloy and for 3rd/4th against David Lewis of TH South.  Landing in 4th earned him a Friday night match against Chad Red after the infamous "oops, those weren't the right brackets" snafu
