Hornets Shut Out Hughesville In Final Home Game

By: Ed Weaver  /  October 19, 2022

The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Soccer team scored a 5-0 shut out over Hughesville in their final home game of the regular season on Tuesday, October 18.

"In spite of the cold, the boys did a great job putting the ball on frame, scoring goals, and keeping a clean sheet," head coach Todd Fitch said. "It was a good win for our four seniors last home match."

It took the Hornets' offense a little while to kick in in the first half but they added a pair of goals to take a 2-0 lead over the Spartans entering the break. With 14:37 remaining junior Caden Smith converted a corner kick from sophomore Alex Citrino into a goal. Then with just under two minutes remaining senior Peyton McClure scored a header off another Citrino corner, making it 2-0.

Smith started off the second half with his second goal of the contest on a header off a corner from sophomore Lucas Cuneo. Cuneo later scored on an assist from senior Sam Rudy, then Rudy later scored from an assist by senior Jack Poirier.

The Spartans won the JV game 3-1 wit the goal coming from freshman David Seeling.

The win improves the Hornets to 15-2 and is their 9th straight. The team returns for their final game of the regular season on Saturday, October 22 at Selinsgrove.
