PA Power The Surge Recap

So, there wasn’t going to be a crazy amount of intrigue at every weight but there were some possible match ups that had national ranking implications as well as another chance to catch Bo Bassett in action and what’s not to like about that?

National Matches

  • 114: Dom Deputy over Matt O’Neill (6-4)
  • Last time out, O’Neill got the win. This time it was Deputy. O’Neill is one of the top middle schoolers in the country so the win is a good one for Deputy but he just maintains his spot.
  • 121: Nico Fanella over Weston Pisarchick (maj. dec. 10-0)
  • Fanella is one of the “first ones out” of the top 25 so his performance keeps him right on that edge.
  • 133: Bo Bassett over Tahir Parkins (fall; 3:06)
  • This was a national top 10 match up. Parkings won’t fall, just notable for how dominant Bassett continues to be.
  • 139: Mason Gibson over Mason Wagner (3-2)
  • I think Bo and Mason will flip weights eventually. For now, I’ll have them where they are. Wagner was a tough finalist for his first event back but nice to close out the day with the win.
  • 145: Pierson Manville over Jack Consiglio (maj. dec. 11-0)
  • Consiglio wasn;t able to capitalize on any momentum from beating Miller the round before. Manville survived a scare in the quarterfinals but bounced back in dominant fashion.
  • 145: Jack Consiglio over Melvin Miller (3-2)
  • This was one of the more highly anticipated matches of the weekend. Solid pperclassman vs scorching hot freshman. It would be the veteran Consiglio getting it done here.
  • 145: Shane Wagner over Melvin Miller (5-3)
  • I think Miller’s performance is to be expected from a younger kid, especially at a more developed weight. He can win Super 32 and finish 5th at The Surge. He can come back and win Ironman and then who knows. Manville, Consiglio, and Miller will all be in Ohio in December. Plus Jax Joy and a host of others.
  • 160: Asher Cunningham over Cael Weidemoyer (11-6)
  • This one here was probably the most influential on the rankings. At the next update, barring some other notable results, this will be reflected.
