Huskies Fall to Tigers, Eliminated From PIAA Duals

| February 8, 2013 | 0 Comments

Mifflin County can chalk up its first-ever venture to the PIAA State Duals as a learning experience. They now know the quality of wrestling featured in Chocolatetown, USA and will have to work even harder to get back next year and make some noise.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, the 2013 experience was not what they envisioned.

After falling 49-9 to Parkland last night, Mifflin County needed to beat North Allegheny to avoid elimination. The results were eerily similar to last night

The Huskies opened with a 3-0 lead only to see it disappear fast as the Tigers won 11 straight bouts en route to the 46-12 win.

Mifflin County ends the dual meet portion of its season with a 16-7 record and a District 6 Class AAA championship in the trophy case.

Lucas Besch (21-9) got things going on the right track with a 9-5 victory over Blynn Shideler at 132, making the score 3-0 in favor the Huskies.

It was all downhill from there.

North Allegheny (18-4) scored bonus points in five of its 11 straight wins to take a commanding 46-3 lead.

In the morning’s feature bout, Dom Forys, ranked third in the state at 120, dropped to 113 to take on ninth-ranked Hayden Hidlay.

Forys proved to have a little too much horse by beating the freshman 5-1. Forys improves to 31-2 on the season while Hilday fell to 21-4.

Isaac Underhill stopped the bleeding with a fall in 3:21 over Connor D’Amato at 120. Underhill is now 28-7 on the season. At 126, Noah Stewart (26-5) made it two in a row for the Huskies with a 3-0 victory over Salvatore Peluso, setting the final score.

The Huskies must now put the losses behind them and get ready for postseason tournament trail, which begins on Friday, February 22, with the District 6 championships in Altoona.
