SCORING POSITIONS
    * Neutral Position - Neither wrestler has control of the other.  Usually standing.  Wrestler scores by getting a takedown.
    * Top Position - Wrestler has control of his opponent and has "taken his back" or has gotten behind bottom wrestler.  Wrestler gains top position by either takedown or reversal.  Once in Top position, Wrestler looks to earn back points or pin opponent.
    * Bottom Position - Wrestler has been taken down and is under or in front of the top wrestler.  Bottom Wrestler looks to score by escape or reversal. 

SCORING

    * Takedown (2 points): A wrestler is awarded two points for a takedown when, from the neutral position, he gains control by taking the other wrestler down to the mat and getting his back.

    * Escape (1 point): Bottom wrestler is awarded one point for an escape when he gets complete separation from Top wrestler.

    * Reversal (2 points): Bottom wrestler is awarded two points for a reversal when he comes from the bottom and takes opponents back without first getting an escape. 

    * Near fall: Near fall or "back points" are awarded when the bottom wrestler's shoulders or scapulae, or the head, is touching the mat, and the other shoulder or scapula is held at an angle of 45 degrees or less to the mat.
        (2 points): Two points are given when near fall criteria are met for two to four seconds.
        (3 points): Three points are given when near fall criteria are met for five seconds or more. After five seconds, the referee awards three points and stops counting.
