Hornets Advance to District Finals

Wellsboro uses hot start to defeat Mount Carmel 73-48

 

by Ed Weaver - February 27, 2019

The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Basketball team punched their ticket to their fourth District IV championship game in the last five years by beating Mount Carmel 73-48 in the District IV Class AAA semi-finals at Montgomery on Tuesday, February 26.

The Hornets started out by opening up an early 10-0 lead and led 16-6 after the first quarter to put the Red Tornadoes behind the eight ball. Wellsboro’s defense held Mount Carmel to just 12 first half points while they built a 32-12 halftime lead.

“When we get off to a good start, good things usually happen for us,” Wellsboro coach Todd Outman said. “This team goes when they start making a few shots. When they miss a few shots then they kind of get down on themselves.

WWe started out really well shooting the ball and played great defense tonight,” Outman said. “They played a fabulous game. That is a good team we beat tonight.”

Mount Carmel picked things up in the second half, but were unable to cut Wellsboro’s lead below 20 points. The Red Tornadoes forced some early turnovers, something which the Hornets were able to keep under control for the night, but once they settled down they went on to score 41 second-half points to roll to the win.

Brandyn Tuttle led all scorers with 23 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for his 38th career double-double. Joseph Grab scored 19 points to go along with 4 assists and 4 steals to back Tuttle up. Andrew Brelo had 12 points and Holden Kennedy added 11 points off the bench to round out the Hornets’ double-digit scoring leaders. Tanner Button and Hunter Brown each added 4 points on the night.

Brown pulled down 7 rebounds while Brelo and Kennedy grabbed 5 each.

The win improves the Hornets’ record to 23-3 on the year as they wait to face the winner of Central Columbia and Loyalsock this weekend.
