MANDATA - Saturday's Line Mountain Duals pitted a handful of the best teams in District 4 Class AA wrestling - but none of them were strong enough to overcome the lone entrant from District 6.
Mount Union went 4-1 to win the event title, dropping its lone dual to Mifflinburg, 39-36, in a match that came down to the wire.
Mifflin County 35, Carlisle 30
CARLISLE - The Thundering Herd managed a couple of leads in a Mid-Penn Commonwealth dual meet against Mifflin County Saturday. In fact, the home team was on top by 10 point going into the final three matches. But wins by Isaac Underhill (132), Jeffery Murphy (138) and Hayden Hidlay wrestling up at 145 clinched the final in favor of the Huskies.
Underhill and Hidlay both had pins, as did Keith Corson (170).
Juniata Jr./Sr. Duals
MIFFLINTOWN - Juniata's day on the wrestling mats couldn't have been much worse Saturday.
At the second of the Indians' three dual-meet events, they lost a Tri-Valley League match to Newport, a District 6 match to Huntingdon and two more on the way to a 1-4 finish, eighth out of the 10 teams entered. The lone victory came against Trinity.
Individually, Derek Beitz was a perfect 5-0 on the day, while Jared Benner, Taylor Foster and Ty Treaster each accumulated four wins. Tylynn Miller had victories in three of the meets.
The Indians wrap up with their largest dual meet tournament Jan. 18.
East Juniata 78,

HARRISBURG - A tie at the end of the first quarter seemed to just make East Juniata angry Saturday.

David Brantley added 16 for the Tigers (9-0).
East Juniata also won the JV game, 53-23, led by Mason Hambright's 19. The Tigers travel to Line Mountain Tuesday.
