Mercury Roundup (Jan. 18): Spring-Ford’s Milano reaches semifinal round at Escape the Rock


Escape The Rock >> Through Saturday’s early rounds, Joey Milano emerged as the lone area wrestler still in championship contention in the high-profile competition at Council Rock South.

Milano reached the semifinal round in the 182-pound bracket after winning two contested bouts. Off an opening-round bye, the Spring-Ford junior scored a second-period pin on Owen J. Roberts’ Tommy Dempsey before racking up a 15-0 technical fall on St. Joseph Regional’s Jack Farinaro.

Milano’s path to a championship belt will go through Downingtown West’s Maximus Hale, his opponent in the semis. He is the 182 second seed, Hale the third seed.

Milano’s Spring-Ford teammate Jack McGill (152)remained alive in wrestlebacks through the afternoon sessions.  Owen J. Roberts’ Antonio Petrucelli (145) remained along with Boyertown’s Jay Maldonado (113). Hill School had four still in contention: Kade Davidheiser (106), Kelvin Green (126), Sam Beckett (138) and Derek Schmaeling (195).
