Did anyone see the match between Amanda Simoneau (senior at Westbrooke High School) that weighed in at 116lbs verses Greg Mattingly that weighed in at 125.3lbs in the mens open division? Amanda wrestled both in the high school and the open divisions. She ended up falling behind 4-0 at the end of the 1st period, but in the 2nd period, caught Mattingly in a cradle and pinned him.

Wonder if he got overconfident and presented her with a mistake to exploit, or if she simply was the better wrestler? She sure was giving up a lot of weight.

It looks as if Deanna Rix is not the only highly capable female wrestler the state of Maine has produced.

A few years ago this victory - high school girl pins a fellow's shoulders to the mat in a tournament - would hav got widespread attention. Now it happens often enough that it isn't paticularly big news. People are learning there are female wrestlers capable of defeating guys.

Hope people are able to resist the temptation to suggest (as they often do) that the defeated male was not a well trained wrestler or wasn't focusing or or wasn't trying.

I saw the match between Greg Mattingly and Amanda Simoneau. I've seen Greg wrestle at other open tourneys in Maine and he usually does pretty good. I saw him pin a girl at the Scarborough tourney last year in the 125 lb weight class. Well to clue you all in on the match: Greg basically took control early and was throwing her around like a rag doll. She was a lot shorter and lighter. He almost turned her for the pin in the first period, but she was so flexible, she was able to belly down. In the start of the 2nd period, he chose up position and he was leading 4-0. When the whistle blew Amanda tried sitting out then kind of spun around and hooked Greg's left leg at the knee joint. She pulled hard on that knee and Greg fell on his left side while he was trying to cradle her...but she kept leaning into him and pulling up on his knee, well, before ya knew it, she kind of took her leg and kicked it back and made Greg lose grip of the attempted cradle..and suddenly he found himself on his butt with his legs outstretched and she was sprawled across him. She v-legged and put pressure down on him so he couldn't turn. He basically panicked and she never let go of his knee. She simply hooked his head and ran the cradle to perfection. Once she trapped him in that he was pretty much caught. She had the cradle in tight because she's so little. But Greg was a respectable wrestler who had much more muscle than Amanda. It was a good win for her against a more experienced, elder wrestler. Way to go Amanda! I cheered for you that day! I think it's great you wrestled both high school and open divisions and I salute Maine wrestling for supporting high school kids to wrestle in both divisions as well.
I have a feeling Greg will back at Scarborough's tourney next year, looking for a rematch against Simoneau...lol. If any anyone near 125-140 wanna challenge/exhibition him, I have his e-mail address from the bout sheet that day.

Krista!

That Mattingly dude obviously had a raging hard on in the last couple photos. Y'all ladies might want to be leary of the "exhibition" mathces this dude is so willing to take with you.
