I think I have this correct:
Andrew Morgan (FV, 170) and Leangelo White (Western, 182) are in the third/fourth match
Russell Rohlfing (Sonora, 126), Mike Marshall (San Clemente, 170) and Abe Ochoa (Yorba Linda, heavy) are in the 5th/6th match
Jed Smith (Mater Dei, 170), Michael Vasquez (Servite, 182) and Steven Ahumada (Loara, 220) are in the 7th/8th place match.
Ochoa down 1-0 into third. and there's a bigger dude currently riding him out. That's it. I think that was Jarrod Snyder of Frontier that beat Ochoa. 1-0. Ochoa now goes for fifth/sixth.
Morgan-Marshall at 170. up now. Leangelo White (Western, 182) also on the mat. not the Morgan-Marshall mat. White pins. he stays in the chase for third.
Morgan-Marshall scoreless after 2.
big third for Morgan. takedown; 3-pt near fall and then he gets the pin. He stays in the race for third. Marshall goes for fifth.
Jed Smith (Mater Dei, 170) and Michael Vasquez (Servite, 182) are both in the 7th/8th match at their weights.
Rohlfing vs. Figueroa (Bakersfield) winner goes for third; loser goes for fifth. Rohlfing loses 5-2. He will go for fifth place.
finally, the 170-pound semifinals are out. Andrew Morgan faces Josh Hokit of Clovis.
takedown Hokit. 2-0 lead
Anthony Valencia (SJB) is already in the finals. He doesn't waste time.
escape Morgan. 2-1. Takedown Morgan. 3-2 lead. Escape Hokit. 3-3.
Meanwhile, Mike Marshall (SC) just beat Jed Smith (MD) 3-2.
Back to Morgan-Hokit. Takedown Hokit he now leads 5-3. 26 seconds left.
escape Morgan 5-4. 5 seconds left!!
Hokit holds on for 5-4 victory.
Leangelo White (Western) defeated Michael Vasquez (Servite).
Still sitting here waiting for the 170-pound semifinals.
They need to speed up these championship semifinals. Just saying.
Abe Ochoa (Yorba Linda) wins his first match. He's a state medalist.
Steven Ahumada (Loara, 220) win by fall at 220 pounds. VJ Leuta (Servite, heavyweight) just lost by fall.
Sonora's Russell Rohlfing just dropped a 10-7 decision to Nathan Cervantez of De La Salle in the semifinals. Rohlfing fought back to tie at 7-7. released Cervantez in the third and then Cervantez sealed it with a TD.
Leangelo White (Western, 182) and Michael Vasquez (Servite, 182) both won to get in. Now they're facing off in the next round.
San Clemente's Mike Marshall win 4-3 at 170 consols. Also, at 170, Mater Dei's Jed Smith beats Penyascek of Gilroy. Both Marshall and Smith are both in top 8 and for good measure they've set up an an All-OC medal match showoff in the next round.
Sonora's Russell Rohlfing on the mat in his semifinal
UFC's Mark Munoz is in the building.
Liam Cronin (Servite) is headed to the finals. Cronin avenged an earlier loss to Quartz Hill's Randon Miranda and defeated him 9-7 in the semifinals.
Cronin will face Cade Olivas (St. John Bosco) in the finals. I think they've met each other a couple of times this year.
Tough start in the consolation round for OC: Dexter Viengvilay (Laguna Hills, 106); Ryan Gutierrez (Brea Olinda, 113), Noah Blakley (Servite, 126) and Trevor Perez (Mater Dei, 138) all lost and are eliminated.
When you take too long to clear the mat, you get called out over the PA: Selma we're waiting on you and we're not happy about it.

Welcome back to the Rabobank Arena for day 2 of the CIF State Wrestling Championships. The fun begins at 9 a.m. with the consolation round.
I need breakfast. I need sleep.
Also, say a prayer for the OCVarsity crew. They're about to embark on a 40-assignment day back in the OC. I'll just be over here relaxing.
