TOURNAMENT SCORING PLACEMENT POINTS 1st place: 16 points 2nd place: 12 points 3rd place: 10 points 4th place: 9 points 5th place: 7 points 6th place: 6 points 7th place: 4 points 8th place: 3 points This is pretty self-explanatory -- you get points based on where you finish. Tournament scores tend to include the minimum number of points that have already been obtained at the time the score is listed. For instance, if a wrestler has advanced to the finals, his team has already been awarded 12 points in their team score because even if he loses the championship match, he would still finish second and get the 12 points. The winning wrestler is simply given the additional points after winning (in this case, 4 more points to the overall team score). ADVANCEMENT POINTS Each advancement in championship bracket: 1 point Each advancement in consolation bracket: 0.5 point Bye followed by win in championship bracket: 1 point Bye followed by win in consolation bracket: 0.5 point BONUS POINTS Each fall, forfeit, default, disqualification: 2 points Each tech fall: 1.5 points — A technical fall occurs when one wrestler has accumulated at least a 15-Point lead without riding time during a match; if a wrestler has a 14-Point lead at the end of a match and has a one-minute advantage in riding time, a point is added to his score giving the wrestler a tech fall. Each major decision: 1 point for a bout won by 8-14 points including a riding-time point if it was earned.
