PITCHING BESTS OFFENSE!

Last Friday evening, the Mansfield Tigers traveled to Wellsboro where they faced the Hornets in a tough NTL showdown. It was a pitchers duel. Neither team could get into a groove offensively because of great pitching. Each team only scored one run in the early stages of the game setting up a tense stalemate that lasted through ten innings. Finally in the bottom of the tenth, the Hornets caught the break they needed when Cody Dehaus was brought home off the sacrifice fly of Brandon Owlett. The Hornets defeated the Tigers, 2-1.

AN APPLE A DAY – BREAK THE FAST

Eating breakfast can make a difference in your health and mood. Research has concluded that children who don’t eat breakfast lack energy and the ability to concentrate. Adults who don’t eat breakfast can be affected this way as well. You need to eat something when you start your day, whatever time that may be. It is easy these days to run out the door in the morning without having anything to eat. We lead such busy lives that it requires effort to add breakfast into our routine.

HOME-GROWN OPPORTUNITIES

The Wellsboro Growers Market is open every Thursday from 3-6 PM on the front lawn of the First Presbyterian Church on Main Street. The market begins May 10 and continues through October 11.

The vendors are dedicated to providing fresh, local food and products to area residents and visitors. In turn, this helps support local, small-scale farmers and gardeners by providing the opportunity to sell produce and farm-related items directly to consumers.
