The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Soccer team routed Northeast Bradford, 7-0 on Tuesday September 12.

The Hornets started the contest with four first period goals, started by senior Noah Fitch. Fitch scored off an assist from senior Gabe Leach, then junior Brett Rudy converted a pass from senior Tanner Runyan to make it 2-0. A corner kick from Leach to junior Cam Tennis made it 3-0 before Rudy scored his second goal of the night off an assist from senior Nolan Lohr to make it 4-0 at the half.

Fitch scored his second goal with help from Runyan to push the score to 5-0. Rudy completed the hat trick, the first of his career, on another Lohr assist to make it 6-0. Freshman Kaeden Mann capped the scoring on Lohr's third assist.

"I'm very happy with the boys," said head coach John Shaffer. "Our speed of play could be better but the ideas were great. It's a great thing the way the stats are spread around the team."

The Hornets took 33 shots on the night to NEB's 5 and had a 6-2 advantage in corner kicks.

Junior Nate Redell made 7 saves in goal on the night for the shutout.

Wellsboro won the JV game 6-0 to improve to 2-1.

The win improves the Varsity team's record to 3-0-1 (2-0-1 NTL). The team will be back in action on Thursday, September 14 against Sayre.
