The Mifflin County wrestling team went a perfect 5-0 on the day to capture its third straight Husky Duals championship, while Hayden Hidlay tied a county record with the fastest fall in team history.

The Huskies, now 16-3 on the season, defeated Wellsboro (78-0), Souderton (56-17), Pocono Mountain East (40-22), Conestoga Valley (40-14) and Penn Manor (45-27) to cruise to the crown. The victory over Wellsboro was the first shutout in the history of the three-year program.

Isaac Underhill (132), Hidlay (138), Noah Stewart (152), Trey Hartsock (182), Timmy Pearce (195) and Colton Craig (285) all went 5-0 on the day to lead the Husky contingent.

Hidlay, in particular, thrives at the Husky Duals and this year was no exception. The 26-2 sophomore was involved in the premier match of the event and broke the school record for fastest fall in the same day.

Hidlay, ranked fifth in the state at 138, hooked up in a hard-fought match with Lucas Ortiz, ranked 15th.

Ortiz opened the scoring with a takedown, but Hidlay quickly reversed to make it 2-2 after one. Hidlay chose down and escaped to make it 3-2. Ortiz took bottom in the third and escaped with 27 seconds left in regulation, forcing overtime.

The one-minute sudden death ended scoreless. Ortiz chose down in the first 30-second OT and Hidlay rode him out. Hidlay escaped in the second 30-second OT and won by a 4-3 score.

In his next match against Penn Manor, Hidlay set the school record with a seven-second demolition of Matt Loiseau of Penn Manor. The seven-second fall broke the record set earlier in the day by Keith Corson, who had a 12-second pin over Aaron Buckwalter of Wellsboro. The pin tied Lewistown’s Clint Chambers for the quickest fall in county history. Chambers had his back in 1999.

Craig had his coming out party with a solid day at heavyweight. After struggling in the early part of the season, the Husky senior looks more comfortable and seems to be finding his groove. His biggest win of the day came against Jeremy Candelario, ranked 17th in the state, from Pocono Mountain East.

Noah Myers (113) went 4-1 on the day, Daulton Wilson (120) and Kyle Kahley (220) were 3-1, Jonah Schultz (106) and Keith Corson (160) finished at 3-2. Kyle Smith (1-0 at 120), Tre Carter (1-0 at 220), Isaac Habbershon (1-2 at 145), Eli Habbershon (1-3 at 170) and Dalton Hildebrandt (0-3 at 145) also competed for Mifflin County.

The day wasn’t all peaches and cream for the Huskies. There were too many late points given up at the ends of periods or matches. It’s these situations the coaching staff continues to work on.

Pocono Mountain East finished second at 4-1, Conestoga Valley (3-2) took third, Penn Manor (2-3) was fourth, Souderton (1-4) placed fifth and Wellsboro (0-5) was last.

Mifflin Count hosts Central Dauphin on Thursday.
