| January 12, 2014 | 0 Comments

The dual meet between Mid-Penn Commonwealth foes Mifflin County and Carlisle came down to the final bout to decide the winner.

Head coach Kirby Martin wasn’t nervous because his best wrestler was waiting to go on.

Husky stud Hayden Hidlay bumped up to 145 and pinned Grant Shugarts to secure the 35-30 victory for Mifflin County.

With the win, the Huskies improved to 10-2 overall and 4-1 in the conference. The Thundering Herd dropped to 7-3 on the year and 2-2 in the Mid-Penn.

Mifflin County found itself down 30-20 with three matches to go after the Thundering Herd took five of seven bouts between 195 and 126.

Isaac Underhill started the comeback with a 3:43 fall over Cody Gorsuch. Jeff Murphy cut the deficit to one point with a 3-0 decision over Tyler Vangi before Hidlay, now 19-2 on the season, disposed of Shugarts to clinch the win.

The biggest win of the night belonged to Noah Stewart. The Husky sophomore bumped up to 160 and majored Ian Shannon, who came into the bout 19-1 and ranked 13th in the state, by an 8-0 margin.

Other winners for Mifflin County were Keith Corson, back in the lineup at 170 after missing time with an ankle injury, Trey Hartsock at 182, Colton Craig at 285 and Noah Myers at 113.

The Huskies are back in action Wednesday when they hit the road to face District 6 rival Central Mountain.
