Ram Tough: Depleted Huskies No Match for Central Dauphin

| January 24, 2013 | 0 Comments

Trying to defeat Central Dauphin at full strength is an almost impossible task. Try doing it undermanned. You have a better chance of winning the lottery.

Mifflin County came into its Mid-Penn Commonwealth match without four starters in the lineup. The result was inevitable.

Central Dauphin won 10 bouts, scoring bonus points in nine of those, to steamroll Mifflin County 50-16.

The Rams remained perfect on the season at 17-0, 7-0 in the Mid-Penn, while the Huskies fell to 14-5 overall and 3-3 in conference action.

Central Dauphin continued its amazing run of success by winning 114 of its last 115 dual meets.

Mifflin County was without the services of Noah Stewart at 126, Brandon Wilson at 145, McKenon Todaro at 160, and Tre Carter at 195.

A depleted Husky squad were in for a long night.

Mifflin County picked up victories from Lucas Besch at 132, Caleb Rhodes at 285, Hayden Hidlay at 113, and Isaac Underhill at 120.

Besch (18-8) used a headlock for a five-point move in the first, a reversal and two more nearfall points in the second, and a takedown and reversal in the third for the 13-4 major over Zach Bentz.

Besch’s win cut the deficit to 6-4. That was as close as it would get.

Central Dauphin reeled off eight straight wins to take a 45-4 lead. The Rams were dominant on the mat with an amazing 52 nearfall points scored. They also held a 15-5 edge in takedowns.

Rhodes stopped the bleeding with a 3-0 decision over Aaron Wolfgang. Rhodes (11-8) scored a point on a locked hands call and a reversal in the third period for the win.

Hidlay improved to 19-2 on the season with a hard-fought 6-4 victory over Austin Camacci. Hidlay broke a 2-2 tie in the first with a takedown in the second and a reversal in the third.

Underhill (25-6) continued his impressive wrestling by pinning Nick Ward in 5:06 to close out the match.

The junior high improved to 18-1 on the season with a 50-33 victory.

Mifflin County hosts Altoona in the opening round of the District 6 Duals on Wednesday.
