Hornets fall to Cowanesque Valley, 12-0
On Friday, October 20 the Cowanesque Valley Indians hosted the Wellsboro Hornets football team, claiming the homecoming night win after an extensive defensive battle.
The first half was back and forth, neither defensive line would budge.
At halftime, the Cowanesque Valley homecoming court was presented. The 2023 homecoming king runner-up was Ean Bump, and the queen runner-up was Ruby Sherman. This year’s 2023 homecoming king was Carter Ackley, and queen was Madelin Millard.
In the fourth quarter, neither defense gave an inch until CV, with a big counter, started to chip away the Wellsboro wall. Hess received the ball and hit the hole for an Indian first down. A few plays later, with 15 to go, CV’s Fletcher Good took an inside handoff, got past the line and was brought down in the secondary, putting the Indians in the red zone. A few more inside runs later, CV on the goal line hit the middle once more and found the end zone for the first time of the night with 7:39 left in the game. The two point conversion as no good, breaking the tie 6-0.
5 minutes remaining in the fourth, Wellsboro lined up deep in Indian territory, set up a screen pass on fourth down – but Graham Hess read the play and tackled the carrier for a turnover on downs.
Finally, with 4:12 on the clock, CV lined up in their own territory, Good received the handoff, got past the line and the secondary and went all the way for a 61 yard rushing touchdown, making the final score 12-0, Indians.
The Hornets will be on the road this Friday at Island Park in Blossburg to face their rivals, the North Penn-Mansfield Panthers. And Cowanesque Valley will host Coudersport.
