Weekly Highlights – 10/03/16 – 10/07/16
It’s time once again to take a look at what happened the past week. The Weekly Highlights are a great way to catch up, but don’t forget that you can always watch the full stories from either our front page or the archives section.
HORNETS SHUTOUT MUNCY, 36-0
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team weathered a slow start to shutout Muncy 36-0 on Friday, September 30.
The win is the Hornets’ sixth of the year and their fourth shutout of the season. Through six games the Hornets have allowed only 27 points (4.5 per game).
“I wasn’t real pleased with execution and the penalties tonight,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand. “We got the ‘W’ but we have to be better as we move ahead. We can’t continue to start slow like this. I thought coming off of last week we got that out of our system but obviously we didn’t. We have to find out what’s causing that and fix that in practice this week because as we move ahead its’ going to catch up to us.”
HILL NAMED “ALL-TIME LEAD SCORER”
Senior Josiah Hill became Wellsboro’s new all-time scoring leader in a 4-2 loss to Athens on Monday, October 3.
Athens would take a 3-0 lead early in the second half as Cardona scored his second goal on an assist from Colegrove. Wellsboro would eventually rebound late in the half as Hill scored with 12:57 remaining on an assist from sophomore Holden Kennedy to make the score 3-1. Colegrove made it 4-1 Wildcats with 6:44 remaining on a direct kick before Hill scored his record-breaking goal off an assist from senior Jacob Singer with 5:01 left in the game to make it 4-2.
“Even though the result was disappointing I’m happy with how the guys played,” said head coach John Shaffer. “I challenged my boys to go at Athens and test ourselves to see how good we are. Even when we’ve beaten Athens in the past we would’ve parked the bus and hoped to just win 1-0. Tonight the team took chances. If we clean up the mistakes and don’t let teams score in the first 5 minutes of each half we will be competitive in Districts.”
HORNETS SWEEP CANTON & TOWANDA
The Wellsboro Cross Country teams both picked up wins over Canton and Towanda on Tuesday, October 4 at Nessmuk Lake. The Lady Hornets beat Canton 22-33 and beat Towanda 21-34 to improve to 6-2 overall, while the boys topped Canton 20-35 and Towanda 19-36 to improve to 7-1. Canton also picked up wins over Towanda as the girls won 27-28 and the boys won 24-31.
