The Wellsboro Middle School Boys Basketball team dropped to 0-2 in the Williamsport Tournament with a 46-30 loss to Loyalsock on Friday, February 24.
Wellsboro struggled early on and fell behind 5-0 early, but tied the game on 5 points from Joseph Grab, but Loyalsock built a 10-5 lead as the first quarter came to a close, and the Hornets were never able to recover. The young Hornets closed the gap to 6 points at halftime, but an 11-3 third quarter in favor of the Lancers proved to be the difference in the game as Loyalsock gave Wellsboro their second loss of the tournament.
