CHICAGO, Ill. – Wrestling Is Back.
In a match where neither wrestler was able to get an offense untracked, Jason Nolf of the Nittany Lion WC edged Jordan Oliver of the Sunkist Kids, 4-1, in the main event of the Rumble On The Rooftop in Chicago on Sunday night.
Nolf led 1-0 after the first period when Oliver was put on a shot clock and could not score. Early in the second period, Nolf was put on the shot clock and did not score, making it 1-1. Later in the period, Oliver was again placed on a shot clock and did not score, giving Nolf a 2-1 advantage. Nolf scored a takedown in the closing seconds as Oliver tried to force a shot, and finished with the 4-1 victory.
Nolf won three NCAA titles for Penn State, while Oliver was a two-time NCAA champion for Oklahoma State. Both are top contenders for the 2021 Olympic Team, Nolf at 74 kg and Oliver at 65 kg.
“I think we can put on a better show than that. Three points, with no offensive points. It kind of stunk. I told him I want to wrestle him again sometime. Maybe we can set up a round two and get some points on the mat,” said Nolf. Continue reading at teamusa.org
