Hornets Sting Wildcats, 62-49

Wellsboro Hornets took down the Athens Wildcats on Friday night

 

by John Vogt - January 26, 2015

The Wellsboro Green Hornets hosted the Athens Wildcats Friday night. This game was a key league match up for both teams in the NTL large school division.

Kieron Smethers of Wellsboro won the opening tip-off getting the ball to point guard Brandon Lamphier. The Hornets were able to run their half court offense but came up a little short failing to score.

Fauver looked unstoppable during the first half, scoring from both the inside and downtown, making a number of three point shots. Brandon was the games leading scorer at half time with 19 points.

Michael Pietropola kept the Hornets close with a steal and a lay-up to end the first half with the Wildcats leading 27 – 24.

During the second half Wellsboro looked like a different team as the Hornet’s offense turned it on. It all started with a Kieron Smethers taking the ball to the hole and finishing with a lay-up against the Athen’ s 1-2-2 Zone defense. Then Jake Mitchell hit a base line jump shot to keep the Hornets offense moving.

Wellsboro’s half time adjustments paid off, taking Fauver out of his comfort zone. The the Hornets would then go on a run taking control of the game with their transition offense. Wellsboro delighted their fans with a outstanding behind the back bounce pass from Smethers to Brandon Lamphier. The Hornets continued to open things up with pass from Kieron Smethers to Quinn Henry to Michael Pietropola for the lay-up. The Hornets outscored the Wildcats 18 to 6 in the third quarter to make the score 42-33.

Dawson Prough started the final period off with a drive and lay-up to keep the Hornet offense rolling. The Hornet’s defense continued to stand tall as Jacob Mitchell takes an offensive charge from Athen’s guard Austin Lister.

The Wildcats tried to claw their way back into the game but Wellsboro’s defense was just too much as Dawson Prough comes up with the ball on a Wildcat misconnect and hits Kieron Smethers with a pass who drives baseline and then finds Michael Pietropola for the lay-up.

The Hornets iced the game behind the outstanding free throw shots of freshman guard Quinn Henry. Quinn was 9 for 10 from the foul line for the game. His offensive decision making and aggressive defense was one of the key factors in the Hornets beating Athens 62 to 49.
