  1. PENN STATE WRESTLERS DOMINATE

    Feb. 18, 2018 UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Penn State Nittany Lions (14-0, 9-0 B1G) closed out their third straight unbeaten dual meet season by pinning a 55-0 shutout on Buffalo in sold out Rec Hall. The Nittany Lions win over the Bulls allows head coach Cael Sanderson’s team to end the campaign with a 14-0 overall. Penn State already won the 2018 Big Ten Regular Season (Dual Meet) title with a 9-0 mark. Buffalo falls to 5-12. Three seniors got the call in their final dual collegiate dual meets, led by Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.) at 149. The Nittany Lions have now won 45 straight dual meets dating back to the end of the 2014-15 campaign. Penn State dropped a 21-18 dual at Oklahoma State on Feb. 15, 2015 and closed out the year with a win over Rider. The Nittany Lions went 16-0 in 2015-16, 14-0 in 2016-17 and 14-0 this year. While this was a non-conference win, Penn State will head into next year with a 25-dual win streak in Big Ten action as well. The sell-out crowd of 6,431 was the 41st straight sell-out in Rec Hall, giving the Nittany Lions 45 sellouts in its last 47 home duals (41 straight in Rec Hall and four of six in the near-16,000 seat Bryce Jordan Center). The dual began at 125 where senior graduate transfer Carson Kuhn (Sandy, Utah) was set to close out his collegiate dual career in front of a rowdy Rec Hall crowd. Kuhn, who transferred from Boise State in January, received a forfeit victory as Buffalo did not weigh in a competitor. Senior Corey Keener (Schuylkill Haven, Pa.) wrestled in the final dual of his collegiate career at 133. The transfer from Central Michigan dominated Justin Patrick, rolling to an 8-3 victory with 1:52 in riding time to put Penn State up 9-0 early. True freshman Nick Lee (Evansville, Ind.), ranked No. 8 at 141, dominated Nicholas Cassella before picking up the fall at the 4:37 mark. Lee’s pin set up Retherford’s career dual finale at 149. Retherford, ranked No. 1 nationally, said goodbye to Rec Hall with his 52nd career pin. The Lion said goodbye to the Rec Hall faithful with a pin over Nick Palumbo at the 4:10 mark. The win improves the Lion senior to 23-0 on the year. With No. 1 Jason Nolf (Yatesboro, Pa.) out one more time at 157, redshirt freshman Bo Pipher (Paonia, Colo.) stepped in and picked up his first dual win as a Nittany Lion by pinning Eric Fasnacht at the 1:53 mark. Penn State led 27-0 at intermission. Sophomore Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh, Pa.), ranked No. 3 at 165, posted a strong and workmanlike 16-8 major over Noah Grover to open up the second half, putting the Lions up 31-0. Sophomore Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.), ranked No. 2 at 174, then notched PSU’s fourth pin of the dual, picking up the fast fall of Derek Holcomb at the 0:56 mark. Junior Bo Nickal (Allen, Texas), ranked No. 1 at 184, notched his eighth fast fall in under 1:00, taking down and sticking Brett Parry in just 0:11. The fall is tied for second all-time at Penn State for fastest pin (David Taylor in 2014). Dylan Alton holds the record with a pin at the 0:08 mark in 2013. Junior Shakur Rasheed (Coram, N.Y.), ranked No. 5 at 197, kept Penn State’s pin parade going by getting the fall over Buffalo senior Joe Ariola at the 1:57 mark to put the Nittany Lions up 49-0. Junior Nick Nevills (Clovis, Calif.), ranked No. 4 at 285, took on Buffalo’s Nolan Terrance in the final bout of the dual. The Lion junior took Terrance down twice early and, on the second one, took the Bull down to his back, reset himself briefly and picked up Penn State’s seventh pin of the dual at the 2:48 mark. Nevills’ fall secured a 55-0 shutout win, clinched a new PSU record for points in a dual meet (55) and tied the all-time record for pins in a dual (7). The points and pins records were both set on Jan. 25, 1983, when the Lions used seven pins to beat Millersville 54-0. The shutout was Penn State’s first of the year and the Lions picked up 25 bonus points off seven pins (Lee, Retherford, Pipher, Hall, Nickal, Rasheed, Nevills), a forfeit (Kuhn) and a major (Joseph). The Nittany Lions posted a gaudy 24-1 takedown advantage in the dual. Retherford now has 118 career wins, 13th all-time at Penn State. He has 52 career pins (16 this year), third all-time and just one shy of the Penn State record of 53 held by David Taylor and Josh Moore. While Nolf stays at fifth all-time with 44 career pins, Nickal has 14 this year and 39 for his career, sixth all-time. Rasheed has 12 this season and 20 for his career and Hall has 10 this year and 22 for his career, both just out of the top 20 all-time in Penn State history. A total of nine individuals were honored as part of Senior Day. In addition to Kuhn, Keener and Retherford, Lions Jered Cortez, Matt McCutcheon, Devon Van Cura, Ethan Wissler, Kenny Yanovich as well as affiliate club member Shannon Dougherty were recognized. Penn State will now prep for the 2018 Big Ten Championships on March 3-4 in East Lansing, Mich. The NCAA qualifier for the conference, the two day event will take place in Michigan State’s Breslin Center and begins on Saturday, March 3 at 10 a.m. The 2017-18 Penn State wrestling season is sponsored by The Family Clothesline.

BOUT-BY-BOUT: 125: Senior Carson Kuhn (Sandy, Utah), wrestling in his final collegiate dual meet at 125, received a forfeit victory when Buffalo did not weigh in a competitor. 133: Senior Corey Keener (Schuylkill Haven, Pa.), wrestling in his final collegiate dual meet at 133, met Justin Patrick. The duo battled evenly for the first minute before Keener worked his way around behind Patrick for a takedown. The Buffalo bench immediately challenged the takedown, looking for an official review. The call stood and Keener led 2-1 early. Keener kept up the offensive pressure, forcing Patrick back on his heels for the rest of the opening period and led by one after one. The Lion senior chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to a 3-1 lead. He then scrambled through a high double for another takedown and a 5-1 lead just seconds into the second period. Patrick escaped to a 5-2 score with 1:30 on the clock and Keener continued to pressure the Bull for the rest of the period. Patrick’s defense kept Keener from scoring but the Nittany Lion led 5-2 after two. Patrick chose down to start the third period and escaped to a 5-3 Keener lead at the 1:30 mark. The Lion ducked under Patrick for a nifty takedown on the edge of the mat and led 7-3 with over 1:00 riding time with :52 left in the bout. Keener nearly rolled Patrick for two back points but he didn’t get the call at the :30 mark. Keener finished on top and, with 1:52 in riding time, posted the strong 8-3 win. 141: True freshman Nick Lee (Evansville, Ind.), ranked No. 8 at 141, took on Nick Cassella. Lee used a high single to work his way to an early takedown just :20 into the bout. Lee cut Cassella loose and then quickly scored again to lead 4-1 at the 2:10 mark. The Lion freshman cut the Bull loose once again and ducked under Cassella for a third takedown and a 6-2 lead with 1:32 on the clock. Lee built up over 1:30 in riding time before cutting him loose again and then notched a fourth takedown just a second later to lead 8-3. Lee forced Cassella into a stall warning and then rolled the Bull over for four back points as the period ended to lead 12-3 after one. Cassella chose down to start the second period and escaped to a 12-4 score. Lee rolled through a low double for a takedown and a 14-4 lead with 1:40 on the clock. He worked Cassella’s shoulders over to the mat, readjusted himself once, then a second time, a third time and got the pin at the 4:37 mark. 149: Senior Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 149, competed for one final time in front of a Rec Hall dual meet crowd against Buffalo’s Nick Palumbo. Retherford used a high double for a quick takedown at the 2:46 mark to open up a 2-1 lead. The Lion senior pulled Palumbo down by his arm for a second takedown with 1:50 on the clock, cut him loose to a 4-2 score, and then notched a third takedown off a high double with 1:30 left in the opening period. Retherford then turned Palumbo to his back, steadied himself on top, and picked up four near fall points to lead 10-3 at the 1:00 mark. Retherford notched a fourth takedown at the :30 mark and led 12-3 after the opening period. Palumbo chose neutral to start the second period and Retherford quickly took him down for a 14-3 lead. He then rolled Palumbo for two back points, readjusted and turned him one more time. The Lion senior, in his final dual in Rec Hall, picked up the pin at the 4:10 mark. 157: With No. 1 Jason Nolf (Yatesboro, Pa.) held out one more time at 157, red-shirt freshman Bo Pipher(Paonia, Colo.) took on Bull Eric Fasnacht. Pipher picked up the bout’s first takedown, using a high single to open up a 2-0 lead at the 1:55 mark. The Lion freshman then locked up a quick cradle, turned Fasnacht to his back and picked up his first dual win as a Lion with the pin at the 1:53 mark. 165: Sophomore Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh, Pa.), ranked No. 3 at 165, met Noah Grover. Joseph scored just three seconds into the bout, taking a 2-1 lead after cutting Grover loose. He countered a slight Grover shot, reset action on the Nittany Lion log and then rolled through a double leg for a 4-1 lead with 2:10 on the clock. Joseph then built up nearly 1:00 in riding time, turned Grover for four back points and cut the Bull loose to an 8-2 lead. Another high double gave Joseph a 10-3 lead at the 1:00 mark. Joseph tried to toss Grover, but the Bull countered for a takedown and two back points to cut Joseph’s lead to 10-7 after one period. The Lion chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to an 11-7 lead. Joseph battled in the middle of the mat, fighting off a takedown attempt at the :30 mark, then taking the Bull down with :15 left to lead 13-7 after two periods. Grover chose down to start the third period and Joseph cut him loose to a 13-8 score. With 1:00 in riding time in his pocket, the Lion sophomore turned a low single into a takedown and a 15-8 lead at the 1:10 mark. Joseph clinched the riding time point and then broke Grover down to finish off the rideout and post a strong 16-8 major with 2:14 in riding time. 174: Sophomore Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.), ranked No. 2 at 174, battled Derek Holcomb. Hall looked to score early, fought off a Holcomb counter, and then locked up Holcomb’s shoulders and head, tossed him to the mat and, after a bit of work, picked up Penn State’s fourth pin of the dual at the :56 mark. 184: Junior Bo Nickal (Allen, Texas), ranked No. 1 at 184, met Buffalo junior Brett Perry. Nickal wasted no time posting Penn State’s fastest pin of the year. He took Perry down off the opening whistle, turned the Bull to his back and picked up the pin just 0:11 into the bout. 197: Junior Shakur Rasheed (Coram, N.Y.), ranked No. 5 at 197, faced off against senior Joe Ariola. Rasheed quickly took Ariola down, worked his way into control of a cradle and picked up two near fall points to lead 4-0 in the opening :40. After a reset at the 1:54 mark, Rasheed worked top control into another near turn attempt but the Buffalo senior was able to fight off the back points. Rasheed then adjusted, quickly locked up another cradle and this time got the fall at the 1:57 mark. 285: Junior Nick Nevills (Clovis, Calif.), ranked No. 4 at 285, met Nolan Terrance. Nevills used a high single to open up an early 2-0 lead over Terrance. The Lion junior used a strong ride to build up some riding time and then turned the Bull for a four-count to lead 6-0 at the 1:45 mark. Nevills forced Terrance into a stall warning at the 1:10 mark and then cut the Bull loose to a 6-1 score. Nevills used another high single to take Terrance down and to his back. He then settled in for the pin, getting the fall at the 2:48 mark.

  4. PENN STATE WRESTLERS DOMINATE

    Feb. 10, 2018 PSU Photo Gallery UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Penn State Nittany Lions (13-0, 9-0 B1G), wrestling without top-ranked Jason Nolf at 157, rolled over visiting Iowa (11-3, 6-3 B1G) in front of nearly 16,000 fans in the sold out Bryce Jordan Center. Head coach Cael Sanderson’s squad closed out its Big Ten dual slate with a strong 28-13 win over the Hawkeyes, ending the year as the conference’s lone unbeaten squad and winning the 2018 Big Ten Regular Season (Dual Meet) title outright. Penn State used two quick pins in the second half to run away from No. 7 Iowa, getting fast falls from Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.) at 174 and Bo Nickal (Allen, Texas) at 184. The duo posted two of Penn State’s seven wins in the dual meet. The dual began at 125 where senior Carson Kuhn (Sandy, Utah) took on his second straight highly ranked opponent. Kuhn took on No. 3 Spencer Lee of Iowa in the dual’s opening match-up, and the ranked Hawkeye got a fall at the 2:06 mark. Senior Corey Keener (Schuylkill Haven, Pa.) put the Nittany Lions on the scoreboard with a solid 5-2 win over Paul Glynn, cutting the Hawkeye lead to 6-3. True freshman Nick Lee (Evansville, Ind.), ranked No. 8 at 141, posted a strong 11-8 win over Hawkeye Vince Turk, tying the dual at 6-6. Senior Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 149, dominated No. 2 Brandon Sorensen in one of the bout’s most anticipated match-ups. Retherford rolled to a 6-2 win including 3:07 in riding time thanks in large part to a full second period rideout. With No. 1 Jason Nolf (Yatesboro, Pa.) out at 157, Lion freshman Bo Pipher (Paonia, Colo.) stepped took on No. 2 Michael Kemerer. Kemerer posted a 14-4 major to give Iowa a 10-9 lead at intermission. Sophomore Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 165, led No. 7 Alex Marinelli throughout the bout but, on a throw attempt of his own, was tripped to his back and lost a tough 9-6 upset loss. Sophomore Hall ranked No. 2 at 174, brought nearly 16,000 Nittany Lion fans to their feet by pinning Joey Gunther, locking up a cradle at the 1:00 mark to give Penn State a 15-13 lead. Junior Nickal, ranked No. 1 at 184, followed suit with a cradle of his own and pinned Mitch Bowman in just :50. Nickal’s pin gave Penn State a 21-13 lead. Junior Shakur Rasheed (Coram, N.Y.) stepped up at 197 and took on No. 7 Cash Wilcke of Iowa and continued to showcase Penn State’s wealth of riches at 197. Rasheed dominated the ranked Hawkeye, rolling up four takedowns, including one with just :04 left. The late takedown, and 3:52 in riding time, gave Rasheed a rousing 11-2 major and clinched the dual for the Nittany Lions. Junior Nick Nevills (Clovis, Calif.), ranked No. 6 at 285, sent the record crowd home in great spirits, using a third period takedown and strong offense on his feet to post a 3-2 win over No. 3 Sam Stoll. Nevills’ victory gave Penn State the 28-13 dual meet victory. Penn State nearly doubled up Iowa in takedowns, posting a 17-10 advantage. The Nittany Lions won seven of ten bouts and picked up seven bonus points off two pins (Hall, Nickal) and a major (Rasheed). The victory moves Penn State’s dual meet win streak to 44, dating back to the 2014-15 season. It is also Penn State’s 25th straight Big Ten dual meet victory. Retherford now has 117 career wins, 14th all-time at Penn State. Nickal now has 13 pins this year, 38 for his career, good enough for sixth all-time at Penn State. Hall now has nine this year, 21 for his career. The sell-out crowd of 15,998 is the largest ever to witness an NCAA dual meet held at an indoor venue (breaking the indoor mark that Penn State held, set in the BJC on Dec. 8, 2013, against Pitt). The Nittany Lions own the top four all-time indoor attendance marks (Iowa’s 42,287 for an outdoor meet against Oklahoma State prior to a football game on 11/14/15 is the all-time record). Penn State has wrestled in 44 sellouts in its last 46 dual meets (four of six in the BJC and 40 straight in Rec Hall). Penn State is now 13-0, 9-0 in the Big Ten and the outright, solo owners of the 2018 Big Ten Regular Season (dual meet) title. Iowa falls to 11-3, 6-3 B1G. The Nittany Lions will close out their dual meet schedule next Sunday, Feb. 18, at 2 p.m. when they host Buffalo in Rec Hall. A limited number of Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets may be available for the dual. Call 1-800-NITTANY for information or to purchase tickets.

Lee worked his way into an early takedown that Kuhn nearly countered, but the Hawkeye finished off the offense for an early 2-0 lead. Lee controlled the action for the next two minutes and then worked Kuhn’s shoulder to his back for the pin at the 2:06 mark. 133: Senior Corey Keener (Schuylkill Haven, Pa.) met Iowa’s Paul Glynn at 133. Keener worked his way in on a solid single that Glynn was able to fight off, forcing an early stalemate at the 2:10 mark. Keener exploded through a high single at the 1:35 mark and took a 2-1 lead after a quick Glynn escape. Keener continued to press on offense, working the middle of the mat and blowing through a high double at the :25 mark to up his lead to 4-1. Keener then broke the Hawkeye down and, with a rideout, carried that lead into the second period. Glynn chose down to start the second period and escaped to a 4-2 score but Keener had 1:01 in riding time. Keener continued to work his offense and, with :50 on the clock, worked his way into a single leg but Glynn was once again able to defend his way to a stalemate. Leading 4-2, Keener chose down to start the third period. The Lion worked his way into a scramble off a reset at the 1:10 mark and nearly notched a reversal before a stalemate stopped his progress. Keener escaped to a 5-2 lead at the :45 mark and then shot repeatedly. Glynn’s defense was tough and Keener notched a solid 5-2 win. 141: True freshman Nick Lee (Evansville, Ind.), ranked No. 8 at 141, took on Vince Turk. Turk came out quickly, getting in on a low single and taking Lee down for an early 2-1 lead. Lee then opened up his offense, nearly scoring right after his escape and then taking a 3-2 lead with a quick low single off a reset. Turk escaped to a 3-3 score and Lee continued to work his offense, turning a fast low shot into a takedown and a 5-3 lead with 1:32 on the clock. Lee cut Turk loose to a 5-4 score and continued to press on offense. Turk was able to defend each Lee shot and trailed by one after one. Trailing 5-4, Turk chose down to start the second period and Lee dominated the action from the top, forcing a stall warning at the 1:30 mark and building up 1:44 in riding time before cutting the Hawkeye loose to a 5-5 tie. Lee notched another takedown as the period ended and led 7-5 with over 2:00 in riding time after two. Lee chose down to start the third period and picked up another point on a second Turk stall. Lee scrambled to an escape and a 9-5 lead with 1:07 in riding time at the 1:10 mark. He notched a quick double leg takedown to up his lead to 11-5, cut Turk loose and began looking for bonus points with another takedown. The Lion slipped on a slight throw attempt, giving up the takedown, and posted an 11-8 win. 149: Senior Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 149, met No. 2 Brandon Sorensen. The duo battled evenly for the first half of the opening period. Retherford connected on a single leg at the 1:13 mark and took an early 2-0 lead. The Lion then went to work on top, breaking the Hawkeye down and looking for a chance to turn him for back points. Sorensen was able to keep from giving up any near fall points and escaped to a 2-1 score as the period ended. Trailing 2-1, Sorensen chose down to start the second period and Retherford went to work on top. Retherford built up 2:05 in riding time, working the clock down to under 1:00. Retherford maintained control for the remainder of the period and carried the 2-1 lead with a clinched riding time point (3:06) into the third period. Retherford chose down to start the third period and quickly escaped to a 3-1 lead. The Lion senior muscled his way through a low single, took Sorensen down and cut him loose to a 5-2 score with a clinched riding time point. Retherford was unable to break through Sorensen’s defense to roll up a major and walked away with a strong 6-2 win with 3:07 in riding time. 157: With No. 1 Jason Nolf (Yatesboro, Pa.) still sidelined at 157, Nittany Lion Bo Pipher (Paonia, Colo.) took on No. 2 Michael Kemerer. Pipher took a quick early shot but Kemerer countered his way to a takedown and a 2-0 lead at the 2:40 mark. Pipher worked his way to his feet and escaped to a 2-1 score but Kemerer quickly notched a second takedown to lead 4-1 with 1:45 on the clock. Pipher escaped to a 4-2 score but Kemerer notched a third takedown with :35 on the clock and rode Pipher out for the rest of the period. Leading 6-2, Kemerer chose down to start the second period and escaped to a 7-2 score at the 1:41 mark. Kemerer connected on a low shot to up his lead to 9-2 at the 1:00 mark. Pipher escaped to a 9-3 score with :43 on the clock but Kemerer notched on more takedown to lead 11-3 with 2:04 in riding time after two periods. Pipher chose down to start the third period and escaped to an 11-4 score with 1:38 on the clock. Kemerer scored on a low shot at the :50 mark and upped his lead to 13-4 with a clinched riding time point. The Hawkeye finished on top and, with 3:22 in riding time, posted a 14-4 major decision. 165: Sophomore Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh, Pa.0, ranked No. 1 at 165, met No. 7 Alex Marinelli. Joseph countered a quick Marinelli shot and nearly locked the Hawkeye up for a throw right off the opening whistle. But Marinelli was able to stay on his feet and action resumed neutral at the 2:20 mark. The Lion sophomore worked the middle of the mat for the next minute plus and then blew through a fast double leg for the opening takedown and a 2-0 lead at the :47 mark. Marinelli escaped to a 2-1 score with :20 left and that score held into the second period. Leading by one, Joseph chose down to start the second period. The Lion steadily worked his way to an escape and a 3-1 lead at the 1:25 mark. He fought off two solid shots and then worked a fast double into a takedown and a 5-1 lead, nearly picking up back points in the process. He tried to lock up a cradle but Marinelli fought through the move and escaped, forcing a reset at the :20 mark. Trailing 5-2, Marinelli chose down to start the third period and escaped to a 5-3 score. Joseph tried to throw the Hawkeye but got tripped to his back, giving up the takedown and four back points to trail 9-5 at the 1:10 mark. Joseph escaped to a 9-6 score with :40 left and began chasing the Hawkeye, looking to tie the bout. Marinelli was able to fight off the Lions’ charge and posted the 9-6 upset win. 174: Sophomore Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.), ranked No. 2 at 174, battled Joey Gunther. Hall caught Gunther’s shoulders at the 2:20 mark and worked the Hawkeye to his back for a takedown. He then locked up a cradle and picked up the fall at the 1:00 mark. 184: Junior Bo Nickal (Allen, Texas), ranked No. 1 at 184, took on Iowa’s Mitch Bowman. Nickal wasted no time taking Bowman down. The Lion used a fast low single to take the Hawkeye down and then deftly locked up a cradle to post the pin at the :50 mark, Penn State’s second straight fast fall. 197: Junior Shakur Rasheed (Coram, N.Y.) got the nod at 197 and battled No. 7 Cash Wilcke. Rasheed wasted no time in opening up a lead, taking the Hawkeye down off the opening whistle for an early 2-0 lead. The Lion worked the top position, nearly locking up a cradle but action moved out of bounds and a reset was called with 1:56 on the clock. Wilcke escaped off the reset and Rasheed led 2-1 with :58 in riding time at the 1:45 mark. Rasheed’s offense was unstoppable early, connecting on a low single for another takedown and a 4-1 lead with 1:20 on the clock.

Iowa challenged for a takedown on the scramble but the call stood and action resumed with Rasheed leading 5-1 at the :42 mark. Wilcke shot low and Rasheed scrambled his way to a stalemate as the period ended. Wilcke chose neutral to start the third period and Rasheed made him pay, working his way through a fast double leg to open up a 7-1 lead with another takedown. The Lion clinched the riding time point and continued to work for a chance to turn the Hawkeye. Rasheed picked up a point on another Wilcke stall and led 8-1. Wilcke escaped with :20 left and with just :08 left, Rasheed roared through a final double leg to clinch a major decision. With 3:52 in riding time, Rasheed rolled to the 11-2 major decision. 285: Junior Nick Nevills (Clovis, Calif.), ranked No. 6 at 285, met No. 3 Sam Stoll. The duo battled evenly for the first two minutes of the opening period, with both men looking for control in the middle of the mat. Nevills took a slight low single at the :45 mark but Stoll stepped away from the shot and action moved to the second stanza tied 0-0. Stoll chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to a 1-0 lead. The duo worked the middle of the mat for the remainder of the period and Nevills trailed by one after one. The Lion senior chose down to start the third period and quickly escaped to a 1-1 tie. He then continued to work his offense on the edge of the mat and scrambled his way to a takedown and a 3-1 lead at the 1:40 mark. The Lion senior maintained control until a Stoll escape at the :50 mark, with Nevills lead 3-2 with :45 in time. Nevills stepped away from a final Stoll shot and posted the strong 3-2 win.
  5. Ponderosa closing

    I am at a loss as to what type of enterprise the Gingerbread Man is. Anyone know?
  6. Lost in all the paranoia is the fact that this was what would appear to be a "game warden", not a policeman.
  7. Ponderosa closing

    Actually, if this is the last shop on the left, when facing Martins, (where Papa John's was), there was a sub shop there originally when that strip mall opened and they didn't last very long, not even a year if memory serves me correctly.
  8. Kohlhepp’s True Value will downsize

    I'm curious here, worked retail grocery my entire life. Let's say that ALL retail operations were only open from 9-5, Monday through Friday, and Saturday from 9 to 1PM how many people here would not be able to shop?

  11. PENN STATE WRESTLERS DOMINATE

    Feb. 3, 2018 PSU Photo Gallery UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.– The Penn State Nittany Lions (12-0, 8-0 B1G), wrestling without top-ranked Jason Nolfat 157, took care of business in a key Big Ten dual meet by beating visiting Ohio State (12-1, 7-1) in sold out Rec Hall. The Nittany Lions roared back from a ten point halftime deficit to post a thrilling 19-18 win, clinching at least a share of the 2018 Big Ten Dual Meet Championship. The Lions won four of five bouts in the second half, highlighted by sophomore Anthony Cassar (Rocky Hill, N.J.) taking care of No. 1 Kollin Moore at 197. Penn State’s victory keeps it dual meet win streak alive at 43 and clinches a share of its fifth Big Ten dual crown under head coach Cael Sanderson. A win over Iowa in the sold out Bryce Jordan Center next Saturday would give Penn State the crown outright. The dual began at 125 where senior Carson Kuhn (Sandy, Utah) made his Penn State debut against No. 4 Nathan Tomasello of Ohio State. The Boise State transfer thrilled the crowd with early takedowns and led into the second period but Tomasello rallied to post a 21-12 major. . Senior Corey Keener (Schuylkill Valley, Pa.) nearly upset No. 2 Luke Pletcher but the Buckeye was able to defend his way to a close 5-4 decision, giving Ohio State an early 7-0 lead. True freshman Nick Lee (Evansville, Ind.), ranked No. 6 at 141, suffered a 7-6 upset loss to no. 11 Joey McKenna, dropping the bout on 1:32 riding time for the Buckeye. Senior Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 149, got Penn State on the board by dominating No. 7 Ke-Shawn Hayes. Retherford posted a 20-4 technical fall with 3:19 in riding time. With No. 1 Jason Nolf (Yatesboro, Pa.) out at 157, redshirt freshman Bo Pipher (Paonia, Colo.) stepped up and took on No. 5 Micah Jordan. Jordan posted a 24-9 technical fall at the 6:06 mark to send Penn State into the halftime break trailing 15-5. Trailing by ten at the half, the Nittany Lions embarked on an epic comeback to keep their win streak alive. Sophomore Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh, Pa.), ranked No. 1 at 165, dominated No. 14 Te-Shan Campbell, controlling the bout from start to finish on his way to a 12-3 major with 1:59 in riding time. Joseph’s win cut the Buckeye lead to 15-9. Sophomore Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.), ranked No. 2 at 174, took care of No 3 Bo Jordan with a 6-4 victory. Hall used a third period takedown and a rideout to roll to the victory with 1:40 in riding time. His win pulled Penn State to within three, 15-12. Junior Bo Nickal (Allen, Texas), ranked No. 1 at 184, dominated No. 2 Myles Martin, controlling the bout from start to finish as he rolled to a 10-2 major decision with 2:07 in riding time. Nickal’s bonus point win gave Penn State its first lead of the dual, 16-15. Cassar got the nod at 197 and took on No. 1 Kollin Moore. The New Jersey native lifted the roof of yet another Rec Hall sellout by controlling the top-ranked Buckeye over the final two periods and rolling to a 6-3 victory. Cassar’s triumph gave Penn State a 19-15 lead heading into the final bout of the evening. Junior Nick Nevills (Clovis, Calif.), ranked No. 6 at 285, took on defending NCAA Champion and No. 1-ranked Kyle Snyder in the final match-up. The Nittany Lion battled Snyder tough but lost a close 15-10 decision. The final Buckeye win was not enough and Penn State posted the thrilling, come from behind 19-18 victory. The victory moves Penn State’s dual meet win streak to 43, dating back to the 2014-15 season. It is also Penn State’s 24th straight Big Ten dual meet victory. Retherford now has 116 career wins, 14th all-time at Penn State. The crowd of 6,699 was the highest this season and is the 40th straight sellout in Rec Hall. Penn State is now 12-0, 8-0 in the Big Ten. Ohio State is 12-1, 7-1 B1G.

  13. PENN STATE WRESTLERS DOMINATE

    In the first period, after the slam. Keener looked like he didn't know where he was. Then he got way behind, third period was his but it wasn't quite long enough. The conference matched might tell a different tale if they wrestle each other.
