Dockter 4th, Ripplinger 7th in Cadet Freestyle

With All American status achieved, all that remained was one match to determine final placing for Bismarck’s Chase Dockter and Ryan Ripplinger.  Ripplinger won a fireworks-filled seventh place match with Minnesota’s Charlie Pickell 24-13. Ripplinger dug himself an early 6 point hole, but scored those points right back-plus some-with a takedown and multiple trap arm gut wrenches.  The exchange made the score 10-6 after a minute.  From there, the two exchanged takedowns back and forth until Ripplinger took control in the second period with another takedown gut sequence that ended with the technical fall.  Chase Dockter was never able to get anything going in his third place match against Indiana’s Eli Pokorney.  Pokorney scored a quick single leg and for consecutive gut wrenches in a :42 technical fall.
