Roach stated he knew by the end of the match he could have employed some different offense to possibly swipe some back points.
“I was getting that arm bar which I like," Roach said. "He was just putting up good defense there so I just need to work, should have worked different moves from there.”
George Colbert won by injury default to turn a 22-21 deficit into a 27-22 lead, and the Barbs strung together wins by fall from Ben Aranda (106), Tommy Curran (113) and Danny Curran (120).
“Those two, they work hard,” Hiatt said. “Really live and die wrestling. Getting the results they deserve.”
Danny Curran was in his second match back from a back injury that had sidelined him for about three weeks.
“I feel 100 percent,” Danny Curran said. “I’m ready to go for the next and the next and the next guy.”
For Tommy Curran, who won by fall in the first period, he came in with the mindset of finishing off the dual.
“It’s great knowing you can put the dual away,” Tommy Curran said. “I like to get our team hyped, and I think our team needed all of those pins.”
Both Currans spoke afterward about the dream of state that hasd driven them forward. Danny said he'd been thinking about it a "long time." Tommy added "since we were little."
