There is no overtime, additional matches, coin flip or, even a game of “rock, paper, scissors” to break a tie in wrestling after all 14 matches have been contested. That meant that after North Central heavyweight Noe Herrera left the mat following his 7-3 victory over Bamberg-Ehrhardt’s Trayvon Jameson Wednesday night, the rule book --- in both hard copy and online form --- were broken out to determine which side would win a pairing knotted at 39. The National Federation of State High School Associations’ rule book goes down through 16 criteria --- listed alphabetically --- to determine a winner in a match which ends in a tie.
