Junior Mickey Phillippi (Darry Area) advances into the finals over A.C. Headlee (Waynesburg Centralt)

The semifinals have come and gone. Several big match-ups took place and more will follow in the POWERade Finals. The highlight bout took place at 132 lbs. where 2013 PIAA State Champion Mickey Phillippi (Derry Area) held off A.C. Headlee (Waynesburg Central) in a tight (1-0) affair. Phillippi was able to ride Headlee out for the entire second period then earned a quick escape to go up (1-0). Headlee attempted several takedowns but was unable to break through the junior.

Franklin Regional sophomore, ranked #15 in the State, Gus Solomon continues to prove his ranking is poor by defeating #3 Ethan McCoy (Greater Latrobe) in a wild match-up at 126 lbs. The two went into overtime overtime scoreless and after a scramble, in which McCoy attempted a headlock, it was Solomon who came out on top (2-o OT) to advance into the finals.

#1 State ranked wrestler Jake Wentzel (South Park) took care of business against senior Josh Maruca (Franklin Regional) at 152 lbs. Wentzel turned Maruca for two back points, escaped and secured a takedown to win (5-1) over the Arizona State recruit.
