The Wellsboro Varsity Girls Soccer team secured their first win of the season in a 3-0 shutout of rival North Penn-Mansfield on Wednesday, September 8.

The Lady Hornets scored midway through the first half on an unassisted goal by sophomore Sara Seeling. Wellsboro added two more goals in the second half, one at 17:55 by senior Hannah Morey (unassisted), and one with just over two minutes to play by junior Jordyn Abernathy with an assist by sophomore Maddy Mascho.

Wellsboro out shot the Lady Tigers 11-2 and had a 6-0 advantage in corner kicks. Senior Lilly Abadi saved both shots on goal.

"We are still working with the starters positions," 2nd year head coach Jorge Taboada said. "The team is taking good form and we are still working together."

There was no JV game.

The win evens the Lady Hornets record up at 1-1 on the year. The team will be back in action for a non-league game at Hughesville on Monday, September 13.
