2019 State wrestling semifinal results: Runs continue for Ryder and Leonard

Minisink Valley seventh-grader Zack Ryder is a state finalist.

Ryder avenged a regular-season loss, defeating Massapequa’s Chase Liardi, the second seed, 5-2 in the 106-pound semifinals. He scored the match’s first takedown 33 seconds in and cradled Liardi in the final seconds of the second period for two more points.

“My strategy was to just go at him right away, get the first takedown and secure the match,” Ryder said. “When I locked up the cradle, I knew I had to finish it to get the two (points) so I went to my hip rolled over and got the two. It feels awesome. It’s what I worked for.”

Cornwall senior Will Leonard advanced to his first state final and the school’s first since Paul Paquin in 1997. Leonard edged Roosevelt’s Deaquan Stuart 2-1 in the Division I 220-pound semifinal. Stuart was banged for a stall penalty with 13 seconds left. Leonard takes a 41-0 record into the final. He will clash with second-seeded Lucas Scott of Chenango Forks.
