Guthrie 215-pounder Landry Chappell was undefeated against all opponents not named Alex Christensen of Deer Creek.
And with Chappell getting the best of Christensen in the semifinals, all that was left was to finish the job.
Chappell was forced to go through the ultimate tie-breaker, but he did it in winning the Class 5A state championship Saturday night at State Fair Arena.
"It was about finishing what I started," Chappell said. "This is an incredible feeling, a really tough match."
Chappell and Chickasha's Jacoby Brown were tied at 1 at the end of regulation. Each scored a point in the tie-breaker periods before Chappell escaped less than five seconds into the ultimate tie-breaker period.
Chappell was joined on the top step of the podium by Bluejays' 140-pounder Bryan Dutton.
The sophomore scored a two-point reversal in the second period and held on for a 2-1 win in the championship. Dutton did not lose to an in-state opponent this season.
Guthrie also received a third-place finish from Austin O'Connor at 119 and placed fourth.
CLINE GOES UNBLEMISHED
Norman North heavyweight Caleb Cline needed sudden victory to beat Stillwater's Travis Morgan in the regional final.
He needed a second tie-breaker in the state championship. It doesn't matter how you get it done as both times it was Cline coming out on top.
Cline escaped in the first tie-breaker session and rode out Morgan to a 3-2 victory. The championship concludes an undefeated senior season. Cline closes the season at 33-0.
SIVERTSEN EARNS TITLE
Moore's Cody Sivertsen had never qualified for the state tournament before his senior season. He made it count.
Sivertsen jumped out to an early lead in hanging on for an 8-6 victory in the 189-pound championship against Sapulpa's Caleb Cotter.
The Lions senior was up 6-3 after the second period and never let Cotter get that takedown in the final 20 seconds to force sudden victory. Sivertsen embraced with coach Robert Washington following the decision. Washington was named the 6A Coach of the Year.
HARTFIELD PICKS UP CHAMPIONSHIP
He was fourth place at last year's championship, but Western Heights' Kenneth Hartfield is bringing home the gold this year.
Hartfield earned a 4-2 decision victory against Tulsa Kelley's Colton Craig to claim his first title.
The match was scoreless after the first period before Hartfield took control and led 3-0 after the second. Hartfield finishes the season at 18-0.
BROKEN ARROW PICKS UP TEAM TITLE
Tulsa Union's Kyle Crutchmer defeated Broken Arrow's Zach Skates in the 160-pound championship in the match of the tournament, but it was the Tigers who claimed the championship.
Broken Arrow overcame a day one deficit to claim its second straight team championship. Skates has signed with Oklahoma State.
EDMOND NORTH'S WHITE FALLS JUST SHORT
For a few seconds, Edmond North freshman Derek White thought he had earned that pivotal first takedown in the 6A championship at 119 pounds.
Originally ruled a takedown at the edge of the mat, officials conferred and said it wasn't a takedown. It proved to be critical as Muskogee's Lukas Etchison defeated White 1-0 for the title.
Etchison escaped from White in the third period and that was the only point.
Edmond North senior Austin Schafer placed third 189 as did freshman Lance Dixon at 160.
HEARTBREAK FOR HARRAH
For most of the 160-pound championship in 5A between Harrah's Richard Griffin and Coweta's Zack Dobbins, neither wrestler did anything to set themselves apart.
But you couldn't have asked for a better final 20 seconds. Griffin trailed 1-0 before scoring a two-point reversal.
However, Dobbins scored a two-point reversal of his own with three seconds left to snatch the championship away from Griffin.
