Home Game: Hornets vs Sayre

The Wellsboro Hornets claim a 63-0 victory over Sayre!

 

by John Vogt - September 22, 2014

The Wellsboro Hornets won their fourth straight game this past Friday night, 63 to nothing. The Hornet defense has only been scored on once this season. That touchdown was a fluke created in the confusion of a broken play, allowing the Bucktail Bucks on the scoreboard. This past Friday night, the Hornets faced of against the Sayre Redskins.

Jack Chambers’ kick-off landed just inside the 10 yard line, and with a short return, the Redskins started their most impressive drive of the evening when number 23, Michael Ward, rushed for 20 yards. Then a short pass to Ward produced another Redskins first down, and for a brief moment, it looked like the Sayre, Redskins had something going. But the Hornet defense adjusted quickly, forcing the Redskins to punt.

The Hornets started on their own ten, and it was bombs-away as Michael Pietropola found Nick Marple for a 41 yard gain. Then number 25, Levi Mack ripped through the Redskins defense with a 20 yard touchdown run, giving Wellsboro their first score of the evening. The extra point by Jack Chambers was good. The Hornets took an early 7-to-nothing lead. Wellsboro Home Page got a chance to talk with Jack Chambers after the game. Watch the interview in the video above!

The Redskins’ second possession went no where, when Michael Brostrom forced and recovered the Sayre fumble on the Redskins’ 33 yard line.

Pietropola hit Dylan Widows on the 15 – and then, being forced out of the pocket – saw a crack in the Redskins defense and rushed 15 yards for the Hornets second score of the game.

A high snap in the first quarter led to Sayre’s confusion and a Hornets’ interception by number 32, Trystan Wheatley. From the Redskins’ 44, Michael Pietropola made a pass to Dylan Widows who managed to stay on his feet down to the Redskins 27 yard line. Pietropola connected with Nick Marple for another Hornets touchdown, and Jack Chambers nailed the extra point again – putting Wellsboro up 20-0.

The kick return started the Redskins on their own 31, where Michael Ward exploded into the Hornets’ secondary with a 18 yard rush. But the drive fell, and the Redskins were forced to punt again.

Kieron Smethers found an opening in the right corner of the end zone for another Hornets touchdown.

The Redskins were forced to punt yet again in the second quarter, but Nick Marple mishandled the ball and Sayre found themselves 1st and 10 on the Hornets’ 38 yard line. Then Kieron “freight-train” Smethers forced Redskins’ Quarterback Marshall Felt to pass into the arms of Ben Davis. Davis carried to the end zone from 55 yards out. Jack Chamber’s extra point was good.

The Hornets defense continued to frustrate Sayre, forcing another punt, but a problem with the snap ended with kicker J.P. Harbst kicking the ball through the end zone to avoid a Hornets recovery. This play was ruled a safety, giving the Hornets another 2 points. Pietropola dialed up Smethers again for the Hornets touchdown.

Still in the second quarter, another Redskins fumble was recovered by Michael Brostrom – his second that evening. Rushing on the Redskins right side, Levi Mack punched it in for another Hornet’s touchdown. Mr. Chambers added the extra point and the Hornets lead 50-to-nothing at the half.

The second half began with Wellsboro receiving…and an 18 yard return by Parker Mann. Pietropola handed off to Levi Mack who plowed through the Redskins middle. Mack topped it off shortly after with a touchdown. Another good kick from Chambers brought the Hornets up, 57 to nothing. Later on in the third quarter, Nick Levindosky dodged and spun his way though the middle of the Redskins line for another Hornet’s touchdown.

The Hornets defense stayed strong throughout the fourth, putting their 3rd shut-out of the season into the history books. The final score: Wellsboro 63, Sayre 0.

At the end of the game, Home Page Sports Director Drew Patrick talked with Coach Matt Hildebrand and Hornet’s kicker Jack Chambers. You can watch those interviews in the video above. Next week, the Hornets travel to Athens to face the Athens Wildcats. We hope you will make every effort to be there to support our team.
