The Wellsboro Varsity Girls Soccer team won their second straight game by beating Towanda 5-3 on Saturday, September 16.

Junior Emma Poirier scored on a penalty kick in the game's first minute to put Wellsboro up, but a Towanda goal by Shaelynn Chandler tied the game up a minute later. Wellsboro then retook the lead in the sixth minute as freshman Jena Boyce connected with freshman Kerrah Clymer to make it 2-1.

The Lady Hornets' lead didn't last long as Towanda's Teagan Willey scored in the 15th minute to tie it back up at 2-2.

The score remained tied as the first half wound down until Boyce scored two minutes into the new half to put Wellsboro up 3-2. Again Wellsboro's lead was short-lived as the Lady Black Knights scored a minute later on another Chandler goal to tie it back up at 3-3.

The score remained tied until the 59th minute as a corner kick by senior Alyssa Yungwirth was headed into the net by Poirier to put the Lady Hornets back in front. Wellsboro's final goal came with 15 minutes remaining as Clymer cleaned up a missed shot on a header.

The Lady Hornets outshot Towanda 16-9 and had a 3-2 edge in corner kicks. Senior Sydney Tremper made 6 saves on the day.

Wellsboro also won the JV game 2-0 on two goals by Elizabeth Macias.

The win improves the Lady Hornets' record to 2-1 (2-1 NTL). The team will be back in action on Wednesday, September 20 against rival North Penn-Mansfield.
