Watch as Illinois commit and #1 ranked Danny Pucino of Libertyville faces off against Northwestern commit and #2 ranked Joel Vandervere of Warren in a dual on January 8th at Libertyville.
You can also watch the full dual on the NFHS Network.
- Great match. Impressive victory for Danny Pucino. He just kept pushing the action and it paid off in the 3rd period. Reminds me of Joel Vandervere's win at the Cheesehead. It certainly put Pucino's name into the national rankings. 138 at the Barrington Sectional has the top 3 138s in the state.The gym was filled with not only Libertyville and Warren fans, but wrestling fans and wrestlers from all over the area. The place was electric. My son belongs to the same club these two great wrestlers and even better kids do so we have seen them scrimmage often before.
They went after each other hard and fast, it was a roller coaster ride of great moves and fast action. One of the most entertaining wrestling matches I've ever seen.
The best part is that they should meet again at the Lake County tournament, Regionals, Sectionals and possibly even state.
