Jake Parnell vs Gary Jay
Scenic City Invitational Tournament 2018 Semi-Finals
Soddy-Daisy High School, Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee, United States
(reviewed 08/22/2018) It’s something of SCI tradition to have a hard-hitting match like this somewhere in the tournament. This one has the same issues of any similar match within or outside of this tournament (struggle to escalate, aimless trading of strikes, little variety, etc.) but this is hardly the worst one I’ve ever seen, in no small part due to Jay being a pretty effective babyface. In fact a few of the double stomps from Parnell here are about the most gruesome thing I’ve seen in 2018 since Suzuki/Goto. No small accomplishment, that.
