H.S. roundup: Standouts get forfeits as Milton handles Mifflinburg


MILTON — Although the big boys didn’t get a chance to wrestle in Thursday’s Heartland-I showdown between Mifflinburg and Milton, a lot of points were left up for grabs for the lightweights.

Between 106 and 145 pounds the Wildcats accumulated 40 points to none for the Black Panthers, and they took a 54-21 victory.

Last year’s state titlewinners — Milton’s Ryan Solomon and Mifflinburg’s Nazar Mironenko — both claimed forfeit wins at 220 and 285 pounds, respectively.

Mifflinburg (1-1) got pins from Cooper Wagner (126), Cole Walter (132) and Dakota Haines (145). The Wildcats also got a tech fall from Patrick Wetzel (106) and a major decision win from Clark Wagner at 138.

Milton (2-1, 1-0 HAC-I) got pins from Taylor Porter (152) and Ryan Preisch (160).

Jersey Shore 34, Shikellamy 33

JERSEY SHORE — Despite entering the matchup with a trio of wrestlers absent, the Braves held a slim lead until the Bulldogs pulled out the HAC-I victory in the final bout of the day.

Shikellamy (3-5, 1-1 HAC-I) led 33-30 going into the 112-pound bout, but Jersey Shore’s Alan Saar major decisioned Dylan Kremer, 13-5, to give the Bulldogs the win.

“It was a good overall team effort. Three wrestlers were hurt but we still had the lead going into the last bout,” said Shikellamy coach John Supsic. “It was a good, competitive match.”

Supsic credited Dylan Houseknecht for getting a pin at 120 and Darryl Englehardt for getting a close decision win at 170. In addition, John Rohrbach got a pin at 170 to improve to 10-2 on the season for the Braves.

Benton 53, Warrior Run 21

BENTON — The Tigers got four pins, including one from former Line Mountain standout Zain Retherford, plus a technical fall in the first eight bouts to cruise to the HAC crossover win.

Midd-West 43, Selinsgrove 33

SELINSGROVE — Dalton Klingler’s pin over Colton Bleyer at 120 pounds ultimately gave the Mustangs the HAC-I win.

In addition, the Mustangs got pins from Dylan Hain (138), Alexander Tittle (160), Alex Lieberman (170) and Zach Longacre (285).
