Day 1 saw Cowboy Olympic hopefuls AJ Ferrari and Daton Fix get beat and pushed to the losers bracket (no hope for Olympic Glory-this year at least) but Jordan Oliver make the finals!

Jordan Oliver will go best 2 out of 3 with Joey McKenna, who he dominated 6 months ago and has had an advantage against.

Ferrari and Fix will be looking to finish strong and wins the consolation bracket. Fix is in the consolations semis against Zane Richards from Illinois RTC. Zane got a bye past Seth Gross via forfeit this morning to make it to the semis.

Ferrari will be wrestling Ben Honis in the consolation quarters. If he wins, he has Ty Walz waiting for him in the semis.

Fun day of wrestling for the Cowboys. Lets see if we can finish out well!

If you want to watch consolations are starting now (12:00) on Peacock app (free trial) and Finals are at 6:30 (CST) on NBCSN (which also has an app if you have them on cable/satellite).

Albert (AJ) is up now.

Down 4-0 after a shot clock violation and giving up a TD. Then executes a NICE throw at the end of 1 to tie it up 4-4!

Gave up a point someone and is now down 4-5

Step out tied it up. 5-5. Big td and turn from honis. 5-9.

Wow! Td and crotch throw! 9-9! Winning on criteria if it sticks. Honis throws a challenge with 9 seconds left.

Wow. Honis picks up 2 on the review. Up 11-9. AJ gets a step out point, but can’t get anything else and loses 11-10.

This is why I don’t love freestyle rules. That series did not look like Honis should have gotten those 2 but

For those that care, JO won his second match, but still isn't assured a spot at the Olympics. We have not "qualified" the weight, meaning we have not placed high enough at any tournaments at that weight to give us a spot in the Olympic field. He gets a chance to punch his ticket in the last chance qualifier in Balarus in a couple of weeks. He has to finish in the top 2 to make the Olympic team. It's definitely doable, but there are some very experienced wrestlers there, and all it takes is one loss before the finals.
