H.S. WRESTLING: Panthers bring ‘A’ game again

March 2, 2013 7:00 a.m. SHARON — For the second week in a row, the Saegertown wrestling team brought their  A game to Sharon High School. This time the Panthers shined by sending five wrestlers into  today’s semifinals at the Class AA PIAA Northwest Regional, and one win away from punching their ticket to Hershey next week.

“We have five in the semis,” Saegertown head coach Jim Mulligan said. “It couldn’t of gone any better.”

The three District 10 champions — Devin Brown, Tyler Vath and Dylan Reynolds — all advanced to the semifinals. Joining them were Nick Monico and Matt Humes.

Brown was the first to receive a spot in the semifinals at 106 pounds. After receiving a bye into the quaterfinals, Brown took care of business by pinning Ryan Carslon of Brockway at 5:46. The victory was the 42nd on the season for Brown, surpassing the single-season school record set last year by Vath.

Vath kept up with his teammate, advancing to the semis at 120 via pin. Vath made quick work of Dave Huselton of Slippery Rock, pinning him at 1:35.

Monico was the next Panther to advance with a 5-2 decision at 126 over Mitch Blose of Redbank Valley.

“That’s what they do,” Mulligan said of finishing their matches quickly. “When they are on their game they can do that every time. Devin just tied the single-season school record with 42 wins. That record was held last year by Tyler. They all like each other and it makes for a friendly competition.”

Humes advanced with a 7-3 decision against Kane’s Darren Brown.

Reynolds was the final Panther to advance to the semis, doing so in impressive fashion. Reynolds defeated Forest Tuttle of Coudersport by an 11-3 major decision.

Bingbong Elizon lived to see another day for Saegertown, after posting 2-1 record  on Friday. Elizon won his opening round match over Cochranton’s Nate Kline, a 10-2 major decision. Elizon would lose his quarterfinal round match but stayed alive after defeating Nick Baughman of Keystone 6-3 in the first round consolation.

Andrew Boylan was the lone Panther to b eliminated in the regional.

“We have a lot of some big money matches in the morning,” Mulligan said. “We have some pretty good opponents tomorrow. But they are one match away from punching their ticket to Hershey.”

Saegertown enters today in third place with 39 points.
