Hornets top Towanda on Senior Night

Wellsboro takes early control and wins seventh straight game

 

by Ed Weaver - January 30, 2017

The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Basketball team won their 7th straight game after topping Towanda 67-28 on Friday, January 27.

“These kids mean a lot, they’ve been through this whole process with us coming up through and they’re going to be sorely missed when its all said and done,” said Wellsboro head coach Todd Outman. “Hopefully we have 7, 8, 9 more games before we have to call it the end.”

The Hornets took control early and never looked back for their 15th win of the season. Senior Jacob Singer led the Hornets with 8 of his 12 points in the first quarter. Wellsboro led 20-6 after the first, and kept up their defensive pressure in the second by holding Towanda to 16 total points at halftime, while scoring 39.

“I think we did well. Defensively in the first half we didn’t do that well but then we picked it up in the second half,” said senior Brandon Lamphier. “In the second half we always come together as a team and its really special when we do that.”

Singer echoed Lamphier’s comments.

“We didn’t play the best defense in the first half but we fixed that up in the second half and finished the game well.”

Wellsboro continued to outscore Towanda in the second half, and built their lead to 40+ points to enact they mercy rule in the fourth quarter.

Junior Collin Pietropola scored a career-high 17 points to led Wellsboro on the night, with the majority of his points coming in the second half. Singer finished with 12, and junior Dalton Prough scored 10. Junior Quinn Henry scored 7 off the bench, Lamphier, junior Nic Ingerick, and sophomore Brandyn Tuttle all scored 6, sophomore Holden Kennedy scored 2, and senior Alden Weiner rounded out the scoring with a point.

Tuttle led the team with 9 rebounds, Prough finished with 8 boards and 4 steals, Pietropola and Singer both grabbed 5 rebounds, and Lamphier had 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Henry had 2 assists to put over 130 for his career and Ingerick also made 2 assists. Singer also added 3 steals.

Wellsboro won the JV game 48-32 to improve to 15-1 on the year. Tuttle led the team with 14 points and sophomore Andrew Brelo scored 9.

The win improves the Varsity team to 15-3 (12-1 NTL).

Next up for the Hornets is a rematch with rival North Penn-Mansfield on Wednesday, February 1.

“Its always so much fun,” said Weiner. “There’s a ton of people there cheering us on and its a great time.”

“We’re excited,” Outman said. “It seems like in the past they always come over here and beat us on our home floor and we’ve been fortunate enough to go over there and be successful so hopefully that will continue. We have some things we need to continue to work on Monday and Tuesday before playing them on Wednesday.”
