HORNETS PUMMEL RAMS, 48-0
The Wellsboro Varsity Football scored 33 second half points on their way to a 48-0 shutout over Wyalusing on Saturday, October 22.
The shutout was the Hornets’ sixth of the season, and Wellsboro had outscored their opponents 387-33 through 9 games this season. Wellsboro allowed just 141 total yards of offense on the afternoon (74 passing, 67 rushing).
“The defense continues to do what they’ve done all year,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand after his 37th career win. “The put points on the board today as well. We had less than ideal conditions early on in the game but they held them and didn’t let them (Wyalusing) put the ball in the end zone. They were out on the field a lot, we didn’t have the ball on offense very much, but they did their job once again.”

MU PSYCH CENTRAL – GAMING (PART 1)
Gaming, whether playing games on a phone, computer, or TV, has a certain tenor to it for those young and old. There are those who think gaming is a “waste of time”, “fascinating”, “weird”, “challenging”, “artistic”, “relaxing”, “a good distraction”, “addicting”, “insightful”, or “problematic”. These are a few of the descriptors people use when they hear the word “gaming”. We all make different associations to this word, depending on how we interpret and experience it. Some love it, some hate it, and some don’t really have any opinion.
Gaming has both positive and negative qualities according to college students at MU. According to our small poll of public opinion, some students don’t find it worth their time to spend doing. They would rather invest in other activities they are more interested in. Others are too busy. For those that do enjoy it, they find it relaxing, challenging, strategic, collaborative, helpful for coping, and artistically inspirational. Depending on interest and lifestyle factors, students choose to spend time in different ways. Gaming is one way to do so.

MEMORIAL TROPHY RIVALRY GAME 2016
The evening of Friday, October 28, 2016 will set the stage for a dramatic showdown: the highly anticipated rivalry football game between Wellsboro High School and North Penn-Mansfield. This year, the Hornets will meet the Panthers at Mansfield University’s Karl Van Norman Field to determine who will walk away with Morton F. Jones Memorial Trophy and the Northern Tier League Large School Division championship. This trophy has been awarded to the winner and traded back and forth since 1962.
In today’s feature, former coach and Home Page correspondent Steve Adams meets with North Penn-Mansfield head coach Tom Dickinson and Wellsboro head coach Matt Hildebrand to talk about their teams, the importance of tonight’s game, and what this long-standing rivalry means to the two schools and to them.
