CM, BEA and Bellefonte fall short in bids for district crowns

(TIM WEIGHT/FOR THE EXPRESS) Central Mountain's Alonzo Henry wrestles in a high school wrestling match against Mifflin County. CM lost to MC, 28-27.

FROM STAFF REPORTS

TYRONE– Overall, it wasn’t a good weekend in Blair County for the Central Mountain Wildcat, Bald Eagle Area and Bellefonte Red Raider wrestling squads as the trio went 2-3.

In AA competition, BEA trounced Richland by the final of 61-14 before the Eagles ran into a roadblock by the name of Huntingdon, the Bearcats defeating the Eagles 41-18.

In AAA, the top-seeded Red Raiders handled Altoona to the tune of 46-22 before falling to Mifflin County 35-27 in the championship bout and the right to go to Chocolatetown and the state meet.

In a real old-fashioned barnburner, Mifflin County slipped past Central Mountain, 28-27, in the semifinals for the right to meet Bellefonte in the finals.

In the Mifflin County-CM dual, the Wildcats won eight weight classes to a half dozen for Mifflin County. Each team received a forfeit win in the meet, but bonus points, seven for Mifflin County and none for Central Mountain, made the difference in the final score.

Now with the post-season individual tournaments at the district, regional and state levels looming in the near future, the Wildcats will close out their regular season by hosting Hollidaysburg Wednesday, February 13, in the regular season finale.
