HORNETS ROLL OVER BUCKTAIL, 65-7
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team cruised to a 65-7 victory over Bucktail on Friday, September 18.
The meat of Wellsboro’s schedule is coming up in the next three weeks as Sayre, Athens, and Troy are all on the schedule, with two out of three of those games coming on the road.
“We have to continue to get better every week,” Hildebrand said. “It’s going to get a lot tougher here from this point on so we have to have good weeks of practice. It’s essential that we practice well moving forward. We can’t stay where we are and keep the status quo. Looking ahead, Sayre is a great team with good size up front and are very motivated.”
The win improves the Hornets’ record to 3-0. The team will be on the road next Friday, September 25 in Sayre before hosting Athens the following week.
