Powerade Day One Results: Hidlay, Hartsock in Semis; Stewart Still Alive in Consolations

| December 29, 2014 | 0 Comments

Three Mifflin County wrestlers are still alive after day one at the Powerade Tournament on Monday.

Hayden Hidlay (145) and Trey Hartsock (195) advanced to the semifinals, while Noah Stewart dropped his quarterfinal match at 160 but is still alive in the consolations.

Hidlay cruised to the quarters after pinning Westmont’s Nick Mical in 46 seconds and destroying Mike Risnear of Penn Trafford 17-2. The time of the tech fall coming in 5:52.

The semifinals featured a battle of two state and nationally ranked wrestlers – Hidlay (No. 2 PA, No. 5 USA) vs. Belle Vernon’s Jared Verkleeren (No. 3 PA, No. 7 USA). The match was worth the price of admission.

After a scoreless first period with plenty of action, Verkleeren chose bottom and Hidlay rode him out the entire second frame. Hidlay escaped to take a 1-0 lead, but got caught out of position and Verkleeren scored the takedown for the 2-1 advantage with just 12 seconds left. The Husky junior, cool as a cucumber, reversed the Belle Vernon sophomore with just four ticks on the clock for the 3-2 win.

Hidlay faces Saegertown’s Nick Monico in the semifinals beginning at 11:30 AM tomorrow.

Hartsock’s road to the semifinals featured a 15-0 tech fall over Jimmy Nestor of Franklin Regional and a 3-1 victory over Matt McGillick of Penn Trafford.

In the quarters, Hartsock used a takedown in the first, an escape in the second and two nearfall points in the third for the 5-1 victory over Bakhtiyar Zaynullaev of Mount Lebanon. Hartsock faces top seed Dylan Reynolds of Saegertown in the semifinals.

Stewart dropped a 7-0 decision to Thomas Bullard of Georgia in the quarterfinals. The Husky junior hooks up with Brett Bryant in the fourth round of consolations, kicking things off at 10 AM tomorrow.

Mifflin County is in 16th place out of 48 teams with 65 points. Buchanan, California is leading with 135.5 points.
