The Gruesome Twosome, better known as Hayden and Trent Hidlay, along with Noah Stewart all went 3-0 on the day and advanced to the semifinals of the Powerade Tournament on Tuesday.

Hayden cruised to the semis with a 3:06 fall over Jordan Laero (Kiski Area), a 14-2 major over Damon Greenwald (Burrell) and a 5:43 pin over Derek Verkleeren (Belle Vernon). The Husky senior faces Tervell Timmons of Illinois in the semifinals on Wednesday.

In a repeat of King of the Mountian, Trent Hidlay is defying his seventh seed. The Husky sophomore defeated Tom Starr of Kiski Area by a 12-2 major decision and followed that up with a 5-1 victory over Ethan Stas (Greater Latrobe). In the quarters, Hidlay took care of second seed Jacob Plunkett of Virginia by fall in 4:46. The younger Hidlay takes on Jose Taylor of Texas in the semis.

Stewart started the day with a 1:48 fall of Travis Hays (New Jersey) and a 15-0 technical fall over Joel Leise of Reynolds. The Husky senior had a tougher time in the quarterfinals, pulling out a 3-2 win. A takedown with 31 seconds left in the second and an escape in the third was all Stewart would need. Next up is a clash with Nino Bonaccorsi (Bethel Park) in the semis.

At 195, Trey Hartsock dropped his quarterfinal match to a familiar rival – Francis Duggan. The North Allegheny sophomore scored a takedown with five seconds left in the match to break a 1-1 tie and drop Hartsock to the consolations. Hartsock is now 0-4 against Duggan. The Husky senior meets Jayden Demmy of Cedar Cliff in the consolations. A win and Hartsock is guaranteed to place.

Mifflin County went 15-21 on the day.
