How to Score Wrestling Points

Matches consist of three one-minute periods with no rest between periods. The wrestler with the most points at the end of the third period is declared the winner. If a wrestler pins their opponent at any time before the end of the third period, the match is over and the winning wrestler earns a win by fall (pin). If the match ends in a tie, overtime periods are added until a winner is determined.
