Wildcats get bounced in first round by Mifflin County in upset, 36-35
TYRONE — Over the weekend, the Central Mountain High School wrestling team traveled to Tyrone for the District 6 AAA Teams Duals, where they were expected to meet up with No. 1 seed Bald Eagle Area in the championship round.
The Wildcats entered the tournament as a No. 2 seed, and faced off against Mifflin County in the first round — an opponent CM dominated the two previous meetings.
Unfortunately this go-around, the Wildcats suffered a shocking defeat, 36-35, for a first round exit in the tournament.
Instead of a blowout, this time the two teams went at it until the very end. When every single one of the 14 weight classes were completed and the score stood even at 35-35, the district committee then looked into the tie-breaker scenarios and Mifflin County was rewarded a 36-35 victory as a result.
Mifflin County then went on to also upset Bald Eagle Area High School for the District 6 AAA Team Duals championship, defeating both No. 1 and No. 2 seeds.
Central Mountain heads on the road to take on Hollidaysburg on Thursday, February 15. The first match kicks-off at 7:00 PM.
