Eagles Dominate Huskies in Mid-Penn Action

| January 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

Mifflin County came into its Mid-Penn Commonwealth match with Cumberland Valley wanting to know where it stood against the upper echelon of the conference.

The Huskies found out they have a long way to go before reaching that level.

The Eagles were bigger, stronger, faster and dominant on their feet. The result was a 42-18 victory for the host squad Thursday evening.

Cumberland Valley (2-2, 2-1 Mid-Penn) held a 27-8 takedown advantage and scored bonus points in seven of their nine victories. Mifflin County had bonus points in only one match.

Isaac Underhill (120), Noah Stewart (126), Brandon Wilson (145), Kyle Kahley (220), and Caleb Rhodes (285) came out on the winning side of the ledger for the Huskies (8-2, 2-1 Mid-Penn).

Mifflin County found itself in a 9-0 hole after Daulton Wilson dropped a 2-1 decision on a late reversal to Parker Hillard at 106, and a forfeit at 113.

Underhill (17-5) put the Huskies on the scoreboard with an 8-1 decision over Sam Horning at 120. Underhill picked up a takedown and two-point nearfall in the first, followed by a reversal and two more back points in the second.

Stewart (15-4) made it back-to-back wins with a grinding 4-0 win over Kevin Novick. The Husky freshman had a takedown in the first and a two-point nearfall in the third for the victory, setting the score at 9-6.

That was as close as Mifflin County would get.

The Eagles won seven of the next eight bouts to put the dual meet out of reach at 42-9.

Alex Wolfe, ranked 16th in the state, collected three takedowns and eight back points for the 16-0 technical fall over Lucas Besch at 132. Felix Belga had six takedowns to win by a 16-4 major at 138, spoiling the return of Kevin Bair to the lineup.

Brandon Wilson stopped the bleeding temporarily with a 6-5 win over Connor Long at 145. Wilson got the takedown with 14 seconds to go to break the 4-4 tie and move his record to 10-5 on the season.

At 152, Patrick Duggan, ranked second in the state at 138, bumped up two spots and defeated Joe Knarr by a 19-4 technical fall. Duggan (18-1) had five takedowns in the match.

TC Warner, state runner-up a year ago, made quick work of Darion Pierce at 160. Warner, ranked second in the state, took Pierce down and got the fall in just 36 seconds to move his record to 18-1 on the year.

Brandon Rudy kept things humming along for Cumberland Valley with an 8-3 win over McKennon Todaro at 170. Freshman Trent Cook followed that up by pinning Jake Lilley in 1:03 of their 182-pound bout. The Eagles made it 42-9 after Matt Hoare majored Tre Carter 18-5 at 195.

Mifflin County captured the final two bouts when Kyle Kahley (11-6) collected three of the Huskies eight takedowns for the 7-2 win over Brandon Rigney at 220, and Caleb Rhodes turned Shane DiPietro over to his back for the fall in 3:22 at heavyweight. Rhodes improved his record to 6-4.

Next up for the Huskies is District 6 rival Central Mountain at home on Wednesday.

The junior high squad won 54-34.
