Jeff Voss/West Delaware Head Coach, "We talked about last year for about 2 seconds and said the only expectation we have is to get better every day in practice and see how good our team can get at the end of the year. They did that every single day and did a great job."

at 195 - Fischer Oohrt capped off a run of 21 straight team points with the stick of Jaimien Moore in the second period --
but Lisbon rallied -- at 132 -- top ranked Robert Avila got a last second pin on Easton Larson -- the match went to the final bout tied at 30 apiece --
