HORNETS DOWN CV, 64-6 IN OPENING GAME
Sophomore Quarterback Quinn Henry threw for four touchdowns as the Wellsboro Varsity Football team defeated Cowanesque Valley 54-6 on Friday, September 4 at Mansfield University’s Karl Van Norman Field to kick off the 2015 season. The Hornets now turn their attention to Muncy, who shut out Warrior Run 35-0. Hildebrand knows that he and the rest of the staff have a lot of work to do during this week to get ready for them.
“Muncy is under a new head coach this year am I’m sure they will be very well coached. They bring back a good number of players that we faced last year and it’s a great environment down at their stadium with their fan base. We must cut down on the penalties if we want to win.”
The Hornets start the 2015 season 1-0 and will be back on the road next Friday, September 11 at 7:00 p.m. in Muncy.

HORNETS DEFEAT LIBERTY, 5-2
The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Soccer team remained undefeated on the 2015 season with a 5-2 defeat of Liberty on Thursday, September 10.
Junior Casey Hoover recorded three saves in net for Wellsboro.
“Tonight was the best passing I’ve seen from the boys in six years,” said head coach John Shaffer. “The ball movement was great. Sean Dooley, Gabe Leach and Tucker were great in the middle.
“We gave up some fluke goals tonight but those will happen in games and the bits responded well to that. It was good prep for a tough game against South Williamsport.”
With the win the Hornets improve to 2-0 (2-0 NTL). The team will be back in action this Saturday, September 12 as they travel to South Williamsport.
