Brandvold beaten in quarterfinals

No. 5 seed Trevor Brandvold was unable to hold on to a first period lead, falling to No. 4 seed Cam Simaz of Cornell, 8-5, in the quarterfinals at 197 lbs.

Thanks to a takedown, Brandvold held a 2-0 lead after one period. He then kept the two-point cushion after two periods thanks to a pair of escapes sandwiched around a takedown by Simaz.

The third period proved troublesome though as Simaz escaped six seconds in after starting in the down position. Simaz then scored a takedown with 1:48 left to move ahead 5-4. Brandvold was able to knot the match at 5-5 after an escape with 1:26 to go, but Simaz came back with a takedown 15 seconds later to pull ahead 7-5. Riding time was a factor, giving Simaz an additional point.
