SCWOA—Situations—Week 3—Rules 3 and 5
Answer the following questions and bring the answers to the next meeting noting the rule, section and article.
- The referee can only rule on situations covered by the rules.
- List and explain the four criteria for awarding a near fall.
- In a dual meet, Wrestler A is ahead by a score of 11-0 with both wrestlers on their feet. Wrestler A is able to initiate a takedown on Wrestler B directly into a pinning situation. The referee completes a two second near-fall count. Before B can be pinned, he reverses and pins A.
- From a neutral position, Wrestler A brings Wrestler B to the mat and has both arms under Wrestler B’s armpits. The referee does not award a takedown because wrestler B has his leg over Wrestler A’s leg.
- It is not stalling when a wrestler repeatedly causes a stalemate position.
