norstrem backing up a lot. no stalling called yet. But Giraldo not committing to a strategy.

Two costly freshmen mistakes.

Getting reversed twice instead of just giving up the one.

What a sh**y way to lose.

12 seconds of riding time determined the winner.

I would have liked to see Giraldo commit to at least one shot during regulation.

I don't think he knew the match was going to end there. I think he thought it would go to another minute of neutral.

i think geraldo had takedown in 2 OT.
refs suck. no review?
But Giraldo had no takedowns

Clock keeper is worst i have seen in a long time. no clue on rules nor how to keep a clock.

Wonder if Tyson is sick. He was not himself at all in any aspect of the match.
