COLUMBIA --- Location, location, location.

In this case, it was a location that led to an angle ... and it was that angle that led to an agonizing loss for Jefferson City's Peter Kuster.

Northwest's Tyler Stegall used a takedown with 30 seconds left, then maneuvered his way to a pair of near-fall points with 4 seconds left to rally past Kuster 4-2 in the 138-pound championship match of the Class 4 State Wrestling Championships at Mizzou Arena.

"They got into a scramble situation and the kid just got the right angle on him, and he was able to push through it," Jays coach Phil Cagle said. "We talk about body position and correct angles all the time, and he just got the right angle."

Great one to win, a really tough one to lose. But it's all about perspective.
