It really wasn't intimidating, but I was a little nervous before the first match. It helped relieve some jitters.

He got two points for the near fall with three seconds left in the period. I was frustrated and the reversal in the third ended it.

I was just really excited the hard work paid off. I wasn't able to get the New England title, but this is even better. My goal was to place from the beginning. A couple of my friends who competed in it before told me the key was to be in top shape.
