In boys soccer action, Wellsboro traveled to South Williamsport to play at Penn College and came home with a 4-1 win.

"South has had some big wins recently and we knew this match would be a quality test for us," said coach Todd Fitch. "The boys embraced the challenge and came away with a positive result against a good team."

The Hornets scored a pair of goals in each period. Junior Joseph Grab scored back-to-back goals on assists from junior Will Poirier. Wellsboro then added 2 more in the 2nd period, both from junior Luke Pondo to put the Hornets up 4-0 before South scored later. Pondo's first goal was assisted by junior Kaeden Mann.
