Young Raiders beat LD, 40-30

Posted

The Middletown youth wrestling team posted a 40-30 win over Lower Dauphin on Thursday, Jan. 9 in Hummelstown.

The win boosted the young Blue Raiders’ record to 7-1 overall and 3-0 in the Mid-Penn Conference’s Keystone Division.

It was a heated battle for the Raiders, who took the lead early, winning seven of the first 11 weigh classes and grabbed a 25-15 advantage.

The Falcons came charging back, winning 4 of the next 5 weights to take a 30-28 lead. But with two bouts left, the Raiders weren’t ready to turn over and die.

Quincy Reinnagel recorded a pin at 2:30 to put Middletown back on top, 34-30, with one match to go. Mason Seeyle then completed the scoring for the Raiders with a pin.

Posting decisions for the Raiders were Geno Corradi, Tillman Artell, Caden Paul, Maxx Trexler, Camdyn Allen, Mason Trexler and Nick Bonner.

Kiley Stoltzfus won by forfeit for Middletown.

Reinnagel and Seeyle won by fall.

“Many matches could have went either way, and this was a very close battle between two well-trained and well-coached teams,’’ said Coach Doug Stoltzfus. “We matched up really well with them and are just glad we came away winning 10 of the 18 match-ups. We lost a few real close match-ups but are extremely pleased with how our upper weights pulled it together and secured our victory.”
