In a rematch of Friday morning's quarterfinal, unseeded John Van Doren
of Lehigh met with number one seed Mark Smith of Oklahoma in the match for third
place. Van Doren showed that the first win was no fluke by upsetting Smith for
a second time with a 3-2 decision.
The match started off slow, with no points scored in the first period.
Smith scored first with an escape in the second, but Van Doren answered back
with a takedown. Smith escaped late in the period to tie it up.
Van Doren scored an escape in the third and held off a deep shot by
Smith in the final seconds of the match for the win.
